“Since the beginning of the placement process, Placement International’s services have been very professional. I had no problems getting my visa since Placement assisted me through each step I took. I must say the all experience has been wonderful. Colorado is simply beautiful and if you enjoy being outdoors this is definitely the place to be. I’ve learned so many things working at the Starwood that I’m pretty sure they’ll make me grow in my professional career. Thank you Placement for helping me find this great opportunity!”

"Hello! I am a student at Ecole hôtelière de Lausanne. I have had the privilege of doing my 6 month internship in Placement International. I was in the Barcelona office and held a rotational position between HR and Sales & Marketing departments. I was involved in many projects, I got to give several presentations in different venues, my ideas were heard and implemented and I was made to feel as a true member of the PI family. Placement International believes in trusting its interns, giving them a lot of responsibilities and many challenges which is why the program was so rewarding for me. As I am reaching the end of my journey here, I feel grateful for this unique experience."
