More Benefits

Interns are expected to learn through different methods employed by your individual business and its practices. Because the American business spectrum is so diverse there is a great deal to offer an Intern who would otherwise not have the opportunity to experience the variety of business styles offered in the US. At the same time, the Intern can bring to your company a perspective that may be new and fresh to your way of doing business.

  • Interns offer valuable professional experience while sharing business practices from their home countries.
  • International interns bring cultural diversity to your work environment creating a culture-sharing atmosphere and promoting global understanding.
  • CHI operates with partners and coordinators who screen all participants. All are highly skilled, motivated, focused and committed to their internship experience.
  • Interns are bilingual and professional, characteristics that will be very helpful too.

Frequently Asked Questions

Your company completes a Training/Internship Placement Plan (TIPP) syllabus specifically outlining the goals and the objective of the internship program. The purpose of the TIPP is to ensure that your company and the Intern have a mutual understanding of the Intern’s duties and expectations. Your company will need to provide a mid-term and final evaluation based on the Intern accomplishing the TIPP objectives.

Our interns come from varied socio-economic backgrounds. Most of our interns only apply for paid positions. We require that our interns are paid a stipend of at least $1200 a month to assist with the cost of living in the US. Unpaid internships must meet certain regulatory requirements in order to be considered.

Providing housing, meals, and/or transportation is completely at the discretion of your company. While the Intern and CHI welcome and appreciate any assistance you may offer, you are not obligated to provide room and board or transportation.

All CHI Intern applicants are required to thoroughly complete an application form as well as submit a letter of intent, resume, three letters of recommendation, and verification of English language proficiency. All this information is available for your review. Also, if there are additional corporate requirements such as Intern’s school transcripts, sample work and/or request for a phone interview, CHI is able to furnish and arrange these requests.

The J-1 visa is issued to overseas visitors for educational and cultural exchange purposes only. While an intern may earn money, it is not a work visa. CHI is a designated sponsor to oversee exchange visitors including Interns in the Internship Program and to provide required paperwork for exchange visitors to apply for the J-1 visa. The J-1 visa category was established by the US government through the Mutual Educational and Cultural Exchange Act of 1961 in order to promote the foreign policy objectives of the US and to increase mutual understanding between the people of the US and other countries through educational and cultural activities.
