BEST Programs provides the opportunity for companies to host university educated candidates from foreign countries. For the local businesses, the benefits of accepting an overseas intern are numerous.
In summation, accepting international interns is a great opportunity to enrich the company in a cultural exchange. One hopes that the experience creates a high level of satisfaction for both the local business and the overseas intern.
After receiving the prospective intern’s application, the two parties decide on the duration of the internship. Scheduling is decided upon as well, usually five days a week.
A formal contract between the student and the business is unnecessary. The nature of the internship is strictly experiential. In no way is the business obliged to provide future work for the intern. The relationship between the firm and the participant is confirmed on the documentation signed when the intern/trainee is accepted.
In agreement with the regulations of international exchange, the intern/trainee is responsible for obtaining insurance that suitably covers medical emergencies such as sickness, an untimely accident, or an unfortunate demise.
Businesses that select an intern are not obligated to provide a salary. However, a compensation or form of scholarly “aide” is optional, depending on the company’s or the intern’s interests. BEST Programs advises the companies to consider the possibility of a stipend, especially if an intern dedicates more than four hours per day to the company/NGO, etc. This aid can be based on lodging, transportation, work clothing, etc.
Most of our candidates are university students or post-graduates with high English language skills. We work with a broad range of candidates in varied fields of interests. The opportunity to host an intern is available to all businesses. Predominating sectors and departments are:
All of the interns enroll in BEST Programs with the intention to improve their language level in a professional setting.

The interns are driven with the motivation to build their resumes and gain practical experience in an international arena.
Contact BEST and we will find you the intern which adapts to your company’s needs.
