Why pay for an internship?

The truth is. You don’t have to. But like many things in life, the Do It Yourself approach can work out well or turn into a real fiasco.

The Placement

Your time is important and your professional growth opportunities matter. Our process starts with your application, your pre-interview, your interview, and your orientation. Each step is focused on getting you the best match possible because we want to make sure you are getting access to good companies with the best placement opportunities. The right company and placement can be the start of a great career while the wrong one can be a big waste of your time and travel expenses. So, our extensive networks and constant communication with those contacts help make sure we offer you the best possible opportunity and fit for you.

Support

Living and working abroad is challenging by definition. Working with a team to help you navigate the administrative, cultural and social challenges is key to helping you make the most of your time abroad. Our on site coordinators are nearby and offer 24/7 support in case of emergencies. But maybe more importantly, they can help you to have the fun you want and guide you enough to prevent other emergencies from even happening.

Cost

At a minimum you should think of our program as an insurance policy against a poor placement, overly expensive housing, and culture shock. Problems can happen anywhere, but on our program you are not alone when they do happen. On a more optimistic note, you should think of us as a tool to make the sure you get the most out of your internship experience. Some of the most important things you are paying for are:
  • Internship placement
  • Pre Program Interviews
  • On site orientation
  • Visa Assistance
  • Housing
  • 24/7 support
  • Social and Cultural activities

Furthermore, many of the components on our program are things you would likely need to pay for on your own, such as housing. We know the headaches housing can be even in your own hometown, much less in a city on the other side of the world. Our local team can ensure you get housing that is safe and affordable.

Overall, our goal is to give you the best services possible at the most affordable price we can. In doing that we chose not to give you the least expensive housing, or the least experienced site coordinators. Instead we have sought to give you the best program value possible.
