Korean Internship Program to Promote Goodwill
BCW has been asked to recommend top U.S. firms well suited to offer internships to Korean university students. This is a great opportunity to promote goodwill between the U.S. and Korea. The Korean interns will learn about U.S. business and your company will have access to quality interns who are motivated to perform and learn.
I was hoping you would offer several internships. The internships can be flexible 3 to 12 months. The interns have English language skills. Concerns such as health insurance, placement costs, and visas are at no cost to your firm.
Questions? Next steps? I'd be happy to discuss at your convenience. 1-310-866-3777 firstname.lastname@example.org
The WEST (Work, English Study, and Travel) Program will allow qualifying Korean university students and recent university graduates to enter the United States for up to 18 months on J-1 exchange visitor visas. The program required them to study English and participate in a professional-level internships.
WEST is under the auspices of the United States Department of State’s Bureau of Education and Cultural Affairs,and the South Korean government's Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade (MOFAT) . The program will be coordinated through Department of State approved sponsoring organizations. I work with CIEE and they have been chosen as a program sponsor.
