Interns and Trainees USA​

Work Placements USA

Our internship and traineeship programs in the USA allow British students and professionals to travel overseas and experience life in a new country and gain valuable work experience in on the largest and most dynamic economies in the world. Completing an internship or traineeship can enhance your CV and show your ability to adapt to new work environments and your understanding of the global business structure.

Whether you are currently enrolled at a university or have worked in the same field for five years these programs are available to you and allow you to expand your horizons. US companies regularly employ international interns and trainees as a means to enrich their work environment. They want to bring new perspectives into their offices and they value the input of their international participants.

Work Experience

What to expect from a trainee or internship placement:

  • Exposure to a dynamic and large economy and business environment
  • Practical on-the-job training for you to increase your skills
  • Experience life in another city and another country
  • Work with knowledgeable colleagues in a structured training program
  • Placements available from four to eighteen months in length
  • Time at the end of your placement to travel the USA and spend some of your hard earned cash

Self-placed or Pre-placedplacements can be personally secured by the applicant for a minimum length of four months or if you prefer to receive some help and want to find a job in hospitality or business then we are able to offer assistance with a pre-placed internship or traineeship. Further information can be found on our placement page.

Our programs are available through the support of our US partner organisation. Each participant on the intern and trainee programs must secure a J1 visa and require sponsorship from a US company to receive the visa. MyEducation (UK) and the US sponsor will support you and guide you through the application process and offer you visa assistance before your departure. This support does not end once you arrive in the USA as you will have access to a 24 hour support service provided by the US sponsor. You can apply through MyEducation (UK) and feel confident in the service you will receive from your first enquiry to the time that you arrive back in the UK.

If you would like to complete a pre-application form then a staff member will be in contact with you.​
