The USA Self-Placement Internship Program is designed for participants who have already arranged an internship placement at a U.S. host company and are just seeking our firm to arrange sponsorship of their J-1 visa.
This program is primarily designed for international students and recent graduates to intern in the U.S. for up to 12-18 months. To qualify, students must be currently enrolled at a university or start their placements no more than 12 months after their official date of graduation. If graduated more than 12 months ago you must also have 12 months, full-time, work experience in your field outside of the USA. Non-U.S. students will be required to apply for a special J-1 Visa which we can arrange sponsorship for you.
The placement offer MUST be directly related to your field of academic study unless you have over five years of work experience in another field.
The process can take from 2-4 months to complete paperwork and verify eligibility of the applicant and host company.
"I have started training at Production Central in New York and so far I'm really enjoying the program. I'm assisting on set, editing, operating cameras, researching and learning something new everyday. The city too is absolutely inspiring and magnificent. It truly is a fantastic experience and I definitely advice all students or trainees to gain international experience. It's really worth it, well at least for me!" - Zoe K. (South Africa)
