Internship Placement Help
The internship placement help is EUR 1125. Additionally, you need to apply and pay for a J-1 visa.
We recommend beginning the process at least 6 months before your desired internship start date - this will allow us enough time to locate potential companies, coordinate the interviews, confirm the placement, and assist you in obtaining the J-1 visa. This will also allow you enough time to secure housing and transportation for your arrival in the U.S.
Because internships are generally considered a learning experience, many are unpaid; however this depends on the company. Some companies may also provide housing or transportation instead of a monetary stipend; however this is not the norm. When you register you can specify with your program coordinator if you would prefer a paid or unpaid program; however we will not limit your offers only to paid internships.
You will be placed according to your indicated program, personal requests, as well as the location of the US company. You will be allowed to make the final choice of the company and location of your preference based on your available internship offers.
Fluency is not required; however your English ability should be intermediate to advanced. You must be able to follow instruction during the internship and perform the required tasks without requiring translation into your native language. You should be able to speak basic (conversational) English with ease.
