International Internships LLC was formed in 2004 to provide university level students and recent graduates, of all nationalities, an opportunity to gain work experience abroad by undertaking an internship in a foreign country. We arrange placements in 16 countries including the United States, using the J-1 Visitor Exchange Visa Program.
We are dedicated to finding you an internship that will not only complement the knowledge you have acquired thus far in your chosen field, but that will give you a global perspective as you seek a competitive edge in achieving your career goals. Almost all of our knowledgeable staff have interned or studied abroad themselves and are available to advise you on the program that best suits your needs. They will guide you through the simple online application, send you a pre-departure packet and advise you on visa regulations as we search for your customized placement abroad.
Most fields can be accommodated and many programs don't require a foreign language. Our onsite coordinators, available throughout your entire stay, secure your housing (optional) and provide you with an orientation once you arrive. Academic credit is available for our programs via a transcript from Truman State University. Soon, you will be working alongside international counterparts while you travel on weekends to explore other destinations!
INTERNSHIPS IN THE UNITED STATES: In 2009, International Internships LLC started offering internship placements in the USA in cooperation with two licensed sponsors of the J-1 INTERN and TRAINEE visa program. We offer custom placements in New York City and then coordinate the procurement of your J-1 visa. In some cases, we have internships located around the country at host companies that have approached us with their open internship assignments. Most fields can be accommodated except technical and engineering fields but if you have questions about this or your eligibility we invite you to contact our USA coordinator.
Why intern with International Internships?
At International Internships we focus on quality over quantity. While some agencies may place you within a pre-determined field or organization that may be somewhat representative of your academic background, we exert the extra effort to merge your academic background and career goals. This customized placement ensures that your internship more completely focuses your academic background and gives you the career exposure you need before entering the full-time work force. Please keep in mind that your placement will be commensurate with your background, education and experience.
International Internships will provide you with an incredible opportunity to see the world through new eyes, immersed in a completely new environment and culture. This rare experience that you invest in will not just serve to earn you credit and enrich your résumé - it will give you international exposure and confidence and elevate your career aspirations to a new level. Our expertise, extensive networks, and dedication to offering interns a rewarding, personalized internship experience have resulted in extremely valuable International Intern experiences.
Credit-seeking students on International Internships LLC programs can earn up to 15 credits for a semester program or up to 6 credits for a summer program, so your academic career doesn't have to go on hold while you develop your professional career.
