Internship for Rome Starts 

One of the best parts of being a Rome Start student is the opportunity to intern at an Italian company. At Loyola’s Chicago campuses, it is very uncommon for freshmen to have internships so this is a rather unique opportunity.

The head of the internship department is Professor Cristiani and she does a marvelous job at helping students who are interested in getting placed within the best company for them. I am taking part in the program this semester and I will be working in a Roman startup called Direttoo that deals with matching food producers directly to restaurants, a concept I find very interesting.

The internship program is also a fantastic way for students to merge more seamlessly into the community. People in most internship places speak some degree English, but undoubtedly, working in an Italian environment is also tremendously helpful for improving language skills
