We are delighted that you are interested in interning and experiencing Buenos Aires with Puentes. We look forward to working you through the application process outlined below in order to craft your ideal internship and plan your Puentes adventure.
Step 1 - Application
Submit initial information on the Application Form found at the link below. Please also email your resume (in English or Spanish) to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Step 2 - Call with Puentes Staff
Upon receiving your application form and resume, we will be in touch with you to coordinate a phone or Skype conversation in order to learn more about you and to start the internship matching process.
Step 3 - Recommendations and Deposit
Following our initial conversation, please send to us two letters of recommendation (in English or Spanish) from professors, mentors, or supervisors at email@example.com. The program deposit is also due at this time. If you do not approve an internship placement within two weeks of receiving your first internship offer, your deposit will be fully refunded.
Step 4 - Interview with Internship Sites
Based upon your application materials and your initial conversation with the Puentes staff, you will be referred to up to three internship sites. You will have a phone or Skype interview with each site. In these conversations, the internship site will get to know more about you, and you will have the opportunity to ask questions.
Step 5 - Matching Process
The Puentes staff will collect your preferences and the internship site preferences. Offers will be extended where there is a match in preferences. Upon receiving an internship offer, you will have up to 10 days to accept or decline the position.
Step 6 - Confirm
Upon accepting an offer, Puentes will connect you with your future supervisor to complete a Commitment Form to outline goals, expectations, and details for the internship. Only once you confirm your internship placement, we ask that the balance of the program fee be paid.
