STEP 1 – CHECK EGIBILITY
We highly recommend an intermediate level of both Spanish and English to participate in this program, although the level required will be defined by each position.
STEP 2 – SKYPE INTERVIEW
The purpose of this interview is to provide you with more information about the program and answer as many questions as possible. After this interview we will have more detailed information about your expectations and preferences to start the personalized search.
We will also contact your culinary school to set up an educational agreement
STEP 3 – CONFIRMATION & DEPOSIT
Once you decide to participate, you are required to submit a $500 deposit (deposits are refundable if a placement commensurate with your background, skills and experience is not secured). The deposit is part of the total fee, not an additional cost.
Once the deposit is received, we still start the research for your custom internship placement.
STEP 4 – RESEARCH PROCESS
The research process usually lasts about 2-4 weeks until we have found you a list of placements based on your profile and personal preferences (5-10 offers). However, if are not happy with our list, we will continue to send you placements until we´ll find an offer that suits you well.
You will select up to 3 choices and we will send your resume to the host properties and get back to you to inform you where you have been accepted.
Once a placement has been accepted, we will inform the host property of your decision and it will be time for you to book your flight and begin your personal pre-departure preparations. We will either arrange for or assist you with the procurement of your legal documents (NIE, Foreigner Identification Number) and send you pre-departure information to help you get prepared for your new adventure.
