Enhance your professional skills through these two one-on-one mentoring sessions with Puentes staff.
Resume Session: One hour in-person resume review session, through a one-on-one meeting with Puentes staff. We do a detailed critique of your resume in advance of the meeting, and then together in person, we share our personalized recommendations with you and review resume best practices. After the in-person meeting, you can share with us your updated resume, and we will do another edit. Puentes Resume Guide included.
Interviewing Session: One and a half hour in-person interviewing skills session, through a one-on-one meeting with Puentes staff. We do an actual mock interview with you as the interviewee and us as the potential employer of the target company or organization chosen by you. Immediately following the mock interview, we provide you with detailed, personalized feedback on your interviewing style and response content, and we share best practice tips, plus the Puentes Interviewing Guide.
Puentes offers Spanish Jumpstart in order to refresh and strengthen your language skills before diving into your experience. The language classes are taught strictly in Spanish in small groups so that you are fully immersed in the language for three to four hours per day, five days a week during your language training.
Many Puentes participants choose to do one to two weeks of Spanish Jumpstart classes before starting their internships. This allows a dedicated time for language and cultural adaptation (and for exploration of the amazing Buenos Aires sites), which can be very helpful to have under your belt prior to your internship.
You can select multiple Spanish Jumpstart Weekly Programs if you would like more than one week of language immersion.
We will arrange your housing so that you will be settled into comfortable, pre-screened, and well-located accommodations during your time in Buenos Aires. All Puentes housing includes bedding, towels, weekly cleaning, and Wi-Fi access. To help you select the best housing option for you, please review our Housing Guide.
