“Over a month ago I started my internship at the International Airport in Rzeszow. I chose this place  because it gave me a chance to observe a day-to-day operations at the airport, in particular, operations related to aircraft ground handling. At my work I am responsible for ramp operations carried with ground support equipment. I had a chance to learn about aircraft ground handling procedures and safety policies at the airside of Rzeszow airport, as well as the operational and economical aspects of a ground handling company.”

‘I’ve decided to take part in this internship programme due to a chance of gaining international professional experience, improving my language skills, and getting to know a new culture. I chose Spain as the place of my internship, mainly because of its culture and language.
A company in which I completed my internship dealt with online marketing. My training lasted for 3 months during which I got to know different methods of running marketing campaigns in social media, making use of the Internet and social-network portals for the purpose of marketing. I also helped in conducting marketing research.
To sum it up, taking part in the programme was incredibly valuable experience to me, both in terms of gaining vocational skills and discovering a new culture. Completing such a training can help us find a new job, improve our language skills and discover different cultures. I definitely recommend the programme to all students”.
