Internship USA

If you’re interested in professional training, we offer two U.S.-based programs that can help you put what you’ve studied to practical use in the field:

INTERN PROGRAM and TRAINEE PROGRAM

Not only do you gain international experience at an American company that will stand out on your CV, but you also have get to live the American lifestyle and earn some money.

Both students and graduates up to 35 years of age may apply.

 

The experience you will gain in an American company will make your CV much more attractive but, first of all, it will help you.

 
 
 

Conditions for Participation

INTERN PROGRAM

The Intern Program is for full-time students or those who graduated less than a year ago and who have advanced English skills.

TRAINEE PROGRAM

For the Trainee Program, you must be 20-35 years old, have advanced English skills, have post-secondary education or higher in the area of training, and have at least one year of experience working in the field. If you did not study in the field you are applying for, you must have at least 5 years of work experience in the area. Both Interns and Trainees must prove they have access to $1,000 for their first month’s expenses.

Interns may work up to 12 months, and Trainees may work up to 18 months.

Procedure

Procesul tau de inscriere depinde de varianta de program pe care o alegi.

SELF-PLACEMENT

If you choose Self-Placement, in addition to the required application documents, you must also submit proof that you have a job placement with an American company (Host Company Agreement & Verification) and an outline of the duties you will incur (Training/ Internship Placement Plan (DS-7002).

Host Company Agreement & Verification

Completed by the company where you intend to do your Internship/Training, this document offers details about the company and defines the rules and the expectations for the duration of your program.

Training/Internship Placement Plan (DS-7002)

The Training/ Internship Placement Plan is to be completed and signed by the Host Company (HC) and the participant. It is an essential part of the application process and allows the HC to outline the role you will have in the company and what you will learn over the course of the program. We can help you compose the text. A company must have at least 25 employees and/or an annual income of 3 million dollars to qualify as Host Company.

PRE-PLACEMENT

If you choose Pre-Placement, you visit our office with the required documents, and based on your background and experience we find a company where you can practice. You can also send us a CV, and we will contact you when something appropriate comes up.

All CVs must be in English and respect the American form. (Visit xxxx for an example.) Pay careful attention to every detail on your CV, as it is the first contact you have with potential employers. Your CV should briefly explain your educational and professional background and highlight any skills and experiences that are relevant to the job you seek. A well done CV can help you in the first stage of selection.

Lifestyle

CULTURE SHOCK

Culture shock is the adaptation process to a new country and a new culture that is very different from yours. The climate, the food, the landscape, and the people are all different, and it can be quite strange at the beginning.

If you have culture shock, don’t panic; it is normal. Once you get used to living in the States and begin to understand the mentality, the shock will disappear.

You might be a little irritable/or homesick. In some cases, you will feel less self-confident and come to depend more on others from your home country – or even to feel that without them you couldn’t do anything. Lots of things can happen, but the best thing to do is not panic.

Advice for Getting over Culture Shock

• Keep yourself as busy as possible. Avoid standing around and feeling bored.

•Concentrate on the present and don’t dwell on memories from home. You’ll always find good stuff to do around you and things you enjoy doing.

• Talk to the people around you. Socialize, tell them about yourself, and make new friends with whom to spend your time.

• Take part in community activities, whether through sports, volunteering, or social events. Don’t sit around!

• Go out, go for a walk, and explore the town around you. You won’t achieve anything if you stay at home all day long sending e-mails to your loved ones.
