I had an incredible 3 months experience in Ireland despite the pandemic period. I joined a great host family and I was considered a member of it, I also experienced the Irish work culture at an equestrian centre.
I would like to thank Elodie and her team for this and as well as for the perfect follow-ups throughout my stay. I came out of this immersion enhanced, and my English too!
A remarkable stay in Ireland with the discovery of a sublime country, an exceptional country and welcoming people!I was able to improve my English and discover how a business works abroad.A big thank you to Elodie for her support and professionalism during these 3 months in Ireland!
I did my first mobility with Breakaway in Eastbourne, England, and I then decided to also have a second one in Ireland, to discover another country and culture, while improving my English!I keep a great memory of these experiences!
Hi, my name is Yassine, I am French and I am 21 years old.
This year I was looking for an internship in the field of marketing but the Covid makes it difficult for everyone.
A friend recommended the Breakaway Agency to me and with them I spoke about my expectations regarding the internship. From February to July I will be the community manager in an Irish coffee shop! I learn a lot even though I work remotely.
I never thought that I would one day have the opportunity to have a chance like this to do an internship abroad. But remotely it is also possible!
I decided to go Ireland to surpass myself and I will leave with a new family, a good experience and a lot of landscapes in my memory.
I was accompanied throughout my stay by Breakaway even during the quarantine, they were there to start to improve my English and to keep me busy.
I'm not bilingual but now I'm not afraid to speak English.
I am extremely happy to have been able to participate to this adventure as it has been very enriching for me. Thanks to Elodie I was able to do an internship which met my expectations and more, I was also able to improve my English and advance in my professional project.
Despite a difficult health situation, I really felt that I was being supported throughout my internship.
A big thank you to Elodie!
How Did We Do?
ADD A TESTIMONIAL
Breakaway let me work in a small company composed of less than 10 people, specialized in stoves and fuel for heating systems.
My goals were, at first, to gain experience in an international context, deal with customers and to learn how to run a business.
I was in charge of developing the business online (put the advertisements online), liaising with customers, helping to manage the showroom and other small tasks.
I will keep in mind these 3 months as a nice experience with nice guys.
I also continued studying English on my own and tried to converse as often as possible with my family host.
I recommend this kind of job abroad, mainly due to the progress in working with people from other nationalities. It's also great to pick up the maximum benefits of it, and show you are able to adapt yourself to a different context.
Hopefully this testimonial could be helpful to the ones interested in moving abroad. Many thanks to Elodie for her support during all this period.
