• EACC Global Internship Program

  • The European American Chamber of Commerce (EACC) is partnering with UC International Services to offer EACC members a new international business solution: a global internship program – also referred to as the J-1 Visa Exchange Program.

    The J-1 Visa allows university students and young professionals from abroad to come to the United States for up to 12 months as interns for full-time, paid exchange programs at eligible EACC member companies.

    Interns participate in structured and guided work-based internship programs in their academic fields. The program recognizes the need for work-based experience; provides on-the-job exposure to American techniques, methodologies, and expertise; and enhances interns’ knowledge of American culture and society.

    Additionally, host companies find many benefits in bringing an international intern to their U.S. location:

    • Learn about an intern’s culture, business practices, and language for company’s future business development in an intern’s home country
       
    • Evaluate and train an intern for employment in home country upon completion of the program
       
    • Support company’s global talent development by providing U.S. experience to future employees at a location outside the U.S.
       

    The University of Cincinnati is the State Department-designated program sponsor, and qualified internship candidates are available from University of Cincinnati partner institutions around the world.
