Find Your Internship
Before applying, you’ll need to spend some time searching for an internship in your chosen career field. If you haven’t started yet, don’t wait! The more time you allow for your search, the more successful you will be. The resources in this section will help you get started. You’ll find examples of strong U.S. style resumes and cover letters, as well as tips on performing well during your phone or webcam interview.
As you apply for internships you may want to provide the organizations you apply to a copy of the Potential Host Organization letter. This letter explains the J-1 visa, the application process, and the responsibilities of the host organization. We hope this letter helps host organizations feel comfortable with the J-1 visa and increases your chance of being asked to interview.
The CIEE website is just one of the many resources available to internship seekers. We encourage you to contact your local CIEE representative if you need additional assistance or advice. And remember, while there are many resources available to help you along the way, there are none more important than persistence, patience, and a little creativity. Good luck!
