The great thing about being an intern in Barcelona is that I was able to work in a different country. CISabroad did an amazing job pairing me up for my internship. As a hospitality and tourism management major, we learn a lot about hotels and restaurants in the classroom but my internship was marketing for an award winning hostel chain. This gave me the chance to learn about the industry in a different way and it really opened my eyes to what is out there.
