PR and Marketing internships in Barcelona

Launch your career in PR and Marketing in one of the most stunning cities in the world. PR and Marketing internships in Barcelona combine the excitement of an international adventure with the practical benefits of an internship. While interning at some of Barcelona’s best firms, interns will learn the field of PR and Marketing. In addition, the exposure to new people will help build a global professional network. Internship experience in Barcelona will challenge a young PR and Marketing professional. Here are five reasons to intern in Barcelona:


1. Endless options

Apart from the professional benefits of PR and Marketing internships in Barcelona, the city is a bohemian paradise. With picturesque beaches, world-famous sights, top-notch restaurants and diverse neighborhoods, interns will have the time of their lives. Barcelona is also conveniently located near cities like Madrid, Rome and Paris. So many gorgeous places are just a short train, bus or plane trip away.

2. Life in the city

Barcelona is an easy-going city. Participants of The Intern Group’s program will have the ability to quickly adapt and make friends as they intern. This international city attracts people from all over the world. Placed in safe neighborhoods close to internships and public transportation, interns won’t have a problem navigating the city. Participants of PR and Marketing internships in Barcelona will also have the 24/7 support of The Intern Group’s local team, ready to help with any issues.


3. An international travel destination

Barcelona is rich with culture. From live music to delicious eateries, this city is made for the senses. However, the city’s architecture really makes it special. Spain’s most notable architect Antonio Gaudí left a permanent mark on Barcelona – his structures make the city what it is today. Although his works are spread about the city, a special visit to the architect’s most famous creations Park Güell and Sagrada Familia are a must. For a more historic architectural view of the city, Barcelona also features ancient structures. The remains of this once Roman city are visible at the Plaça del Rei in the Barri Gòtic.

Especially during hot summer months, the picturesque beaches of Barcelona draw in large crowds. Many can be reached via public transportation or a short walk. Barcelona’s most famous beach, Barceloneta Beach, features an international crowd and exciting nightlife. While there, interns can watch live performers and savor a tasty gelato. For a more relaxing experience, Bogatell Beach is a bit more secluded, though still just only 15 minutes from the metro.

4. Barcelona Nights

Spaniards love to share the things they love: food and conversation. The friendly locals enjoy passing their evenings over a drink and tapas, chatting with friends and eating together. Try the patatas bravas (fried potatoes with a tomato sauce) or calamares (fried octopus).

While in Barcelona, interns cannot miss their chance to catch some Spanish fútbol (soccer). FC Barcelona is one of the best teams in the world. See the team play at Camp Nou, the largest stadium in Europe. Prepare to be as amazed by the enthusiastic fans as by the talented athletes.

5. Catalonian Culture

Interning in Barcelona isn’t complete without a lesson on Catalonia. Barcelona is the capital city of Spain’s Catalonia region, which prides itself on its unique traditions. Many of Barcelona’s celebrations are Catalonian traditions and cannot be found in other regions of Spain. In Catalonia, locals also speak Catalan, not Spanish. Though in Barcelona you can use either language, learning some greetings in Catalan will please the locals.
