Do an internship in the Netherlands or on Curaçao? That can of course be a difficult choice, but we do know the right answer, namely doing an internship on Curaçao! Nothing is more fun than a few months away from the cold little country and enjoying a warm temperature every day. If this hasn't convinced you yet, then we have five more reasons why you should do an internship on Curaçao.
It is super good for your resume
When you can put on your resume that you have done an internship in Curaçao, you already have an edge on your competitors. You turn out to be an adventurer who doesn't shy away from a challenge. You want to learn and discover and those are positive qualities that an employer wants to have in his workplace.
It is good for your own development
Being away from your own familiar environment for a while can be good for your own development. You learn to stand on your own two feet but also to make your own choices. You cannot fall back directly on your home front, but you will have to make decisions yourself. Sometimes this works out better than the next, but you learn from this. You become more confident and independent.
This is an experience that you will never forget
Later when you get older and people ask about the fun things you did in college, this is definitely one of them! Doing an internship on Curaçao is truly an experience you will never forget. You meet new people and experience the most special and funny moments with them during your student days, how nice is that! Besides the fact that you come to Curaçao to do an internship, you also have enough time to party and relax on the beach. Your fellow students in the Netherlands certainly do not do this.
Discover the Netherlands in a different climatet
Curaçao still belongs to the Kingdom of the Netherlands and you can still see influences from the Netherlands everywhere on the island. Curaçao also has a rich history in which Dutch people played a major role. You actually do an internship in a tropical Netherlands, we think nothing is wrong with that!
You have "hopi" (many) fellow students
Curaçao is a popular country to do an internship and you will experience this the moment you are here. This also makes it extra fun because you always meet peers with whom you can do fun things. We therefore always advise you to stay in a student villa where you have several roommates during your internship on Curaçao, so that you get to know new people immediately! We have several housing in our portfolio where you are assured of nice roommates around you.
