Intern Project Examples:

1 - Marketing and Writing Intern

The intern will carry out a survey and develop success stories of Uruguayan ITC companies. The work will involve identifying success stories of national companies with respect to their business practices, internationalization processes, and implementation of solutions. The intern should gather knowledge from the national ITC companies and carry out fieldwork through personalized interviews with relevant businessmen in order to develop the cases. These should have a written component, preferably in English and Spanish, and a multimedia component. The product to be delivered will be approximately twenty documented cases during the duration of the internship. These inputs will be the basis for a subsequent international dissemination work carried out by association and will be published on the local and international web portal, both by the association and by the participating companies. This project offers the intern an exciting opportunity to get to speak with leaders in the ITC field and learn from their stories, while creating a powerful collection of case studies to help to further position Uruguay as a leader in ITC.

Spanish Level Required: Advanced
Academic Background and Technical Skills: The intern should possess skills in planning, oral and written communication, design of analysis cases, and management of multimedia tools for video development.  This is a great fit for students interested in startups and technology.
