As June ticks away I am still sitting here in Columbus anxiously waiting to get to my summer internship. I am set to work in the finance department at Votorantim, a Brazilian industrial conglomerate based out of São Paulo, just as soon as I get through all the red tape. If nothing else, my experience so far has been a great lesson in working in a foreign country.
So far the process of getting a work visa has involved collecting a list of documents proving my prior work experience and education, waiting, preparing more documents, and of course more waiting. It has been frustrating at times, but I know that this experience will be incredibly valuable to my education.
More information to come as I (hopefully) get on my way to Brazil and learn more about what my actual project will be.
