US Trainee and Internship Program

Completing an Internship in the USA allows you to improve skills and your career prospective opportunities back in your home country. Stand out in the crowd of college and university students and graduates who are vying for the same job opportunities as you in your home country by taking a 6 to 18 month internship in the USA. Employers in your home are always looking for persons with the right work experience or training and they especially love applicants who have worked or trained abroad gaining international exposure to world class standards thereby making them more valuable to any organisation that chooses to hire them.

There’s never a better time to do an internship in the United States of America. Every month International Career Partners Ltd receives open position listings from the USA in the areas of Culinary, Hospitality Management, Food and Beverage Management in 4 and 5 star hotels and all are paid positions. You can also find your own internship or training positions and provide us with the details of your host US company in order to have your host US Company vetted and approved before we can start the processing of a J1 internship or trainee visa.

These are the categories in which you can seek to find an internship or trainee opportunity:
-Hospitality & tourism
-Marketing & sales
And more
