How To Be Part of It
At CIEE we do work that brings people together. We are passionate, mission-driven, and wholly committed to delivering the absolute best in international exchange. Are you ready to become a part of it?
Think a group of talented, passionate people can help change the world? So do we.
The work we do is about helping people grow, helping them find themselves and each other. It’s about developing new ways to support them as they push their own boundaries, make new connections, and reform their perceptions.
At CIEE our mission is central to what we do, but committed, inspired people make us who we are! We’re always looking for outstanding, highly motivated people who are serious about making a difference and thrive in a fast-paced, collaborative environment. If you're up to the challenge, we have opportunities—both domestic and international—that could be right for you.
Working in Portland
We love what we do and where we do it.
With staff based in over 40 study centers around the world, there are 55 international cities CIEE calls home. Here in the U.S., though, that home is Portland, Maine.
A city that’s earned superlative titles—from the nation’s “Foodiest” to “America’s Most Livable”—Portland’s diversity, international flare, world-class cultural offerings, and small-town sense of community make it a perfect fit.
Less than 10 years old, our beautiful, modern headquarters has already become a landmark in the city’s historic Old Port district. It’s more than an office; it’s another site through which we help facilitate educational exchange. Whether we’re hosting a foreign film screening, a talk-back with a Nobel Peace Laureate, or a cultural event for local high school students, we’re committed to fostering understanding, and developing connections, between local and global communities.
Our programs change lives; our alumni change the world.
With upwards of 250,000 former participants, CIEE alumni are members of a vast and diverse community of students, teachers, and professionals. Our alumni services can provide you with information, resources, and contacts that allow you to reconnect with old friends and form new relationships with potential colleagues, mentors, and employers.
Visit our CIEE alumni page and discover opportunities—both domestic and international—to work, teach, intern, volunteer, or continue your studies.
You've studied abroad with CIEE; now come be a part of it!
The alumni internship program identifies a group of exceptional alumni—who have participated in a CIEE study program—to serve as paid interns at our Portland office or CIEE Study Center for nine weeks over the summer.
Summer interns are appointed to an engaging and challenging project that has a high impact on both the students’ professional skill set and ultimately CIEE’s family of programs. Visit our alumni page to learn more.
At CIEE we’re proud to work with a vast network of partners and representatives who are as passionate as we are about making international experience a reality for their students. Whether you’re a U.S. college or university interested in more information on helping your students take part in a CIEE program, or an international organization interested in promoting our programs in your country, we want to work with you.
