The Puentes professional development program is designed to provide career enrichment opportunities complementing your internship experience and to help position you as a highly qualified candidate for future professional endeavors.
During the course of your internship, you have two one-on-one mentoring sessions with Puentes staff to build additional professional skills. The first session focuses on resume building and provides you with personalized revisions on your resume. In the second session on professional interviewing, you do a mock interview with Puentes staff and then receive detailed feedback on your interviewing style and responses, as well as helpful tips on best practices for job interviews.
Speakers and Networking Events
Through your participation in Puentes, you are given access to attend networking events and professional speakers in Buenos Aires. Puentes also hosts exclusive, monthly “Puentes Presenta” talks with local leaders in their fields during the months of June, July, and August. You are introduced to such diverse topics as the dynamic history of Argentina, careers in the media industry, an inside look at tech start ups, and more.
