Let’s get to know more about his adventure, shall we?

Hello, I´m Carlos!

I was born and raised in São Paulo (southeast Brazil), but I am doing my bachelor’s in International Business at the HU, the University of Applied Sciences of Utrecht (the Netherlands). I came to Porto to join the amazing Student Room Flat team for my first internship, in hopes of developing myself not merely as a professional, but also as a person. I missed my country’s culture and the life I had there, filled with sun, friendly people and great food, so I decided to look for an internship in Portugal, and that is how I came across the Partnership and Booking assistant position at SRF! I am motivated and willing to grow as a professional and the company gave me the opportunity to do exactly that. As soon as I mentioned my interest in digital marketing, I was offered opportunities to learn and develop myself with the outstanding digital marketing team at SRF, showing that they are not only concerned with what I can bring to the table as an intern but how they can help me grow as one of their own. It did not even take a week until my manager started inviting me to join him in calls with our customers and partners, so I could develop myself in other aspects of the company I was showing interest in.

From the first interview, I knew the vibe at SRF was something immaculate. All my superiors treated me with respect and heard me as if I was one of them. They were not stuck in the boss/employee mindset, from day one my opinions, ideas and inputs were heard and valued, making me feel a part of the team.

The contact was easy, even before I was working here they were always available to help me, including as a customer, since I am also living in one of SRF´s amazing accommodations, Camilo Co-living, in the city centre of Porto. Where I made friends and memories, since the moment I arrived in the house.

I am extremely excited for my semester here, the city truly is a one-of-a-kind experience, a place to explore and make memories that will last a lifetime. The city and its culture are vibrant and the variety of people makes it easier to find a perfect balance between Brazilian, Portuguese and international friends. I am learning about new cultures and exploring Portugal at the same pace that I am rediscovering my own culture through the corners of the country. It feels as if I found my second home, both at SRF and in this country.”
