Professional Development

Professional Development and Personal Discovery

There are two sides to professional career training: skills development and intercultural discovery. For most participants, both are equally important.

In addition to improving his or her English language skills in an American work setting, a trainee will receive practical training and learn the latest tradecraft from cutting-edge U.S. companies, acquiring new expertise in areas directly related to his or her career. In fact, this is assured by the formal training plan required by the U.S. Department of State and CIEE.

For most participants, a professional training program in the United States can be a life-changing opportunity to grow personally, as well. What they learn about America and what they gain in intercultural understanding are as significant as the professional education that comes during training.

CIEE is proud to play a central role in this important contribution to building international understanding, by bringing aspiring international professionals and companies together with the best exchange training programs anywhere.
