Young foreigners gain experience working in Chile

Chile is not only an attractive market
for Chilean workers. In addition, more and more professionals are coming from
abroad to work in Chilean companies. This constitutes an exchange that enriches all concerned

Harasimowicz is German and studied Business and Mathematics at the University of Hamburg. He is currently getting
adjusted and gaining knowledge at Intech, a Chilean company specializing in
teams that provide gas and instrumentation analysis services. During the six
months Sebastian will be working at the company, one of his main tasks will be
to increase the client portfolio and seek new representations for German

Sebastian, many young foreign professionals are coming to Chile to work
in local small- and medium-sized companies (Pymes). This is a new global trend
that is developing strongly and allows the exchange of experiences and learning
between all the parties involved.

For Andrés
Jara, Executive Director of the Business Entrepreneurship and Innovation Center
EMPRETEC, an institution that together with the AIESEC network of recently
graduated university students created the International Internship Program to
which Sebastian Harasimowicz applied, “for any Chilean PYME it is a privilege
to work with a top-level foreign student at a reasonable cost, because it
allows them to incorporate in their companies young people with a different
experience and greater familiarity with international markets that aren’t easy
to access.”

In turn,
professionals who undertake the internship also benefit from the experience,
because it allows them to learn how to work in an entrepreneurial environment
that is different from the model of their country of origin, broaden their
horizons and develop other ways of facing problems and new challenges.
