By participating in VEC's internship program the employer gains a valuable asset and cultural resource, as well as an opportunity to work with motivated and capable students with a variety of skills. The interns are dedicated, willing, and capable of making a professional contribution.
Long-term Benefits of Sponsoring an Intern
Furthermore, by sponsoring interns, employers gain potential long-term contacts for future international business development. Interns can often be a means of developing a dynamic contact network throughout the Americas, Asia, and Europe. In a globalized economy such networks are crucial to fostering international cooperation.
Practicum assignments vary in length from four to twelve weeks. Interns work from 30 to 40 hours per week, depending on the employer's schedules. Employers are not expected to pay for any expenses such as meals, transportation, or wages.
