IN WHAT KIND OF COMPANIES WILL I BE INTERNING?
We have partnership with big and small companies of a wide variety of industries. We do this because working in big companies provide a lot of career opportunities for the students and we know how important is for some to say that they worked for a well-known company in their starting professional years. However, our experience with interns at small companies are also great since they get involved really deep in projects and have the opportunity to work close with senior level directors.

Some of our internship programs are paid. Please read each case in order to know which ones offer cash or any other compensation.
WHAT HAPPENS IF I DON’T ACCEPT THE PLACEMENT OFFERED?
Before anything goes wrong, we ask you to give us 3 main positions for your placement to make sure we’re looking for the correct offer for you. If even after this you don’t like the offer, we ask for 3 main reasons of why you dislike it and if the reasons are valid, (E.G. University credits, specific projects) and give you a second offer. If you dislike the second offer again, the same process takes place, only this time we reconsider your eligibility in the program.
WHEN AND HOW DOES THE INTERVIEW PROCESS WITH THE COMPANIES WORK?
After the first interview with us, you should pay a deposit. In the following days we will send your resume to our partner companies and local offices in the country you chose. It will take from 2 to 4 weeks to have an answer from them and confirm an interview.

Yes, but not at all companies. When this is not possible we try to find a company close by, so you can still be housemates. Please let us know if you want to intern together in your application.
What if I cannot stay at my internship because of personal reasons (home sick, sickness, etc.).WOULD IT BE POSSIBLE TO GET A REFUND?
It’s always a pity when you have to leave your internship early because of personal reasons. Please, in case you have to leave, inform your host company about it, as well as your university and us. In case it has something to do with sickness you need to inform your insurance company too. We know that home-sickness often fades away after a while. Unfortunately, we are not able to refund in case of personal reasons.
