Are you planning to host an Austrian Intern or Trainee?
If you already have a candidate in mind, we at FSTS can assist you and your future intern/trainee throughout the application process to qualify for the J-1 Intern/Trainee visa. This visa will allow her/him to train legally with your company and it will allow you to involve your company in a rewarding cross-cultural exchange. As Austrian Representative of CIEE, the leading visa-sponsor for the J-1 Intern/Trainee programs, we can assist you both with information on the eligibility requirements and with hands-on support in creating a good application.
Your part in enabling the candidate to qualify for the J-1 visa is very straightforward and not at all time consuming: we will only ask you to create a training plan on form DS-7002 that serves as an outline for the training and shows the correlation between the intended training and the candidate’s educational background. We will provide you with the form DS-7002 and relevant information and our colleagues at CIEE will help you should you have any questions regarding the content. Whether your future intern or trainee is a student at an Austrian college or university or a recent graduate or a young working professional, we can help you decide which program will work best! As part of the program the intern/trainee will also be covered by health insurance and both CIEE and FSTS will be there for you and your trainee to help with any questions that might arise during her/his stay in the US.
Please feel free to contact us with any questions you might have regarding the possibility to hire an Austrian Intern or Trainee!
We look forward to hearing from you!
