Accelerate Search Limited (Puentes Abroad)
Accelerate is an international executive recruitment firm headquartered in Buenos Aires, Argentina.  The company has extensive experience successfully finding and placing candidates around the world across multiple industry sectors, functions, levels, and locations. Operating on a global basis, the company uses a direct headhunting search model. They specialize in tailored, quick, and highly efficient, targeted headhunting and find quality candidates for their clients. 

Intern Responsibilities: IIP interns will become full team members at the firm and will have the opportunity to work side-by-side with the company’s founders and directors to learn the business. Interns will shadow projects and become immersed in systems, software, and technology.  A project tailored to the intern's interests and skillset will be defined prior to the intern’s arrival. Interns are expected to take ownership of their tasks.  Project opportunities include designing and implementing strategies for marketing, social media, and online presence enhancement of the company; conducting phone calls with potential candidates and references while selling the firm’s services; and assisting with financial and accounting matters.

Qualifications: IIP candidates with interests in learning about a fast-growing start-up and who would like to gain experience in project management, business development, marketing, and communications are encouraged to apply.  The firm seeks highly organized students who are eager to learn and take on real responsibilities.  No specific academic background is required, but students with a comfortable and strong phone presence are desired.  No Spanish is required, since the project work can be conducted in English, but basic Spanish is recommended.
