- How do I know I will be placed with a good host company?
All our host companies go through a rigorous screening process before being accepted as suitable.
- How does a host company decide if I am right for them?
After the host company has reviewed your resume, you may be invited to an interview with them. During this interview, you will be asked questions just like in a normal job interview. Depending on the outcome of the interview, the host company may accept or reject you as an intern. If you are rejected, we will generally do a post-interview debriefing session. As soon as possible, another interview with another host company will be arranged.
- How do you monitor my progress after my internship starts?
After the initial placement, you will be required to submit regular reports on a bi-weekly or monthly basis. These will keep track of how your internship is progressing, what tasks or projects you have worked on and for how long, what challenges you have faced, and so on.
- What if, I start my internship and I am unhappy with it?
If the problem cannot be solved through communication with the host company, other options will be considered. It is however quite rare that, despite everyone’s best efforts, a company fails to provide the experience which they had committed to provide. In such cases however, every effort will be made to resolve this problem and consider the best possible next steps as quickly as possible.
