WHAT TO BRING
Formal clothing in case of meetings is a must but otherwise semi-formal clothing is enough. It is good to have a USB memory to work with as they might be working on different computers.
Interns will stay with a family about 35 to 45 minutes away from the office.
They have 3 meals with the family but while working they will probably not have time to get back home for lunch so the family can either prepare a simple lunch box or they can eat close to work in a restaurant at their own expense.
Interns will have a private room and a shared bathroom.
TO GET THERE
Interns will arrive to Quito where they first will have orientation to be shown basic things like where they have Internet, phone cabins, ATM´s etc and if they want Spanish classes we can arrange that.
They will be taken by a member of the onsite staff / coordinator to the place of work to get introduced the first day and of course shown how to get there.
Calculate $0.25 to $0.50 for a one way trip here from the family.
Though Spanish level and experience and/or education within the field are important. personality is also something that determines what they will get out of their experience.
An open person that shows interest and initiative will have a good experience.
Initiative is important as the staff often takes this as a sign of interest so they will most likely get into their tasks faster.
It takes normally about a week to get into work and for some it even takes up to two weeks before they start to understand their tasks and how things work.
