About Interning in Brazil
World-renowned for its beaches, music, dance, and soccer dominance, Brazil is also gaining recognition for its booming economy. As South America’s largest economy, Brazil attracts businesses large and small from a diverse range of industries, and it is an ideal destination for interns hoping to gain experience in an emerging market. In addition to your internship here, you will experience the Brazilian culture and lifestyle, which are characterized by the country’s fun loving, passionate and welcoming people.
Interns can expect to work side by side with local colleagues, receive direction from a manager or staff member, and behave just as one would in a real job. On weekends or after work hours, interns engage in a host of activities depending on each participant’s tastes. Interns share meals with new friends, take in cultural events, explore the city, or even take day or weekend trips outside of the area. World Endeavors provides a list of possible activities in the area and the World Endeavors local coordinator can also function as an ever present guide and ambassador to the area.
