Why Hire An International Intern?
Diversity: Having people from different cultures and backgrounds creates a more dynamic professional environment that fosters new ideas and ways of doing business. International interns are highly motivated individuals who bring fresh energy into any place of work.
Local Knowledge and Perspective: Hosting an intern from a country or region in which you currently do businessor intend to do businesscan provide you with practical insights that you otherwise wouldn’t have.
Talent Development & Intra-Company Transfers: If your company has a presence in other countries, the J-1 Intern/Trainee Program can also serve as a way to facilitate training for employees of sister or parent companies at U.S. locations. For those companies expanding into new countries, the program can also aid in developing local talent to drive growth in those markets.
If you already know the candidate for your internship, then CIEE can sponsor their J-1 visa and provide the best in program support.
If you need help finding candidates for your positions, then CIEE has options for you too.
