Where did you do your internship and in which department?
I did my internship in online marketing, at the hotel and travel guide Secretplaces Lda. on the beautiful Lisbon coast.
How did you like it? Would you recommend it to other HMKW students?
It was an incredibly great experience and I'm very glad I chose it despite the circumstances (Corona, etc.). I can recommend it to anyone who wants to get a taste of foreign air and get to know everyday working life in foreign countries.
What was the biggest challenge during your internship abroad?
I think the biggest challenge is making your own decision to get involved in an internship abroad. Once you're on the ground, you adapt to the new circumstances and also deal with potential problems and language barriers. Since I'm an open-minded person who really enjoys new challenges and foreign cultures and languages, I actually perceived the entire time as an opportunity rather than a challenge.
