Throughout my six month internship work experience at Spark languages, I know that I will learn and achieve a lot for myself, as this opportunity brings benefits in both professional and personal aspects. This can also translate into a bigger commitment on my behalf, as this means I will be more enthusiastic to do work that benefits me personally, rather than simply seeing it as a job.
I will develop a more open mindset to working long hours and putting in effort to the full, breaking down any notion in myself that I don’t have drive, or the temptation to leave tasks until later, and always being a reliable staff member.
I will also help in creating the nice atmosphere that Spark has to offer, being a welcoming, friendly place to all that come here, and a supportive environment, whether they are working or learning Spanish. Being a more outwardly positive person doesn´t just have an effect on others, but also yourself, so it is as much of a benefit to me as the students I welcome to Spark.
I will also build a stronger professionally-oriented mindset, as working in a business is different to studying in a university. I can already see in the Spark team on my second day that we all rely on things we have done for each other, such as scheduling tasks, communicating important information about one others jobs, etc… so learning to work as an effective part of a team is key goal for me.
I will also become competent at speaking Spanish, as I have never learned another language fluently before, this will be a challenge for me that I welcome taking on.
