In 5 steps to an internship abroad in Vancouver
Our American partner organization Academic Internship Council (AIC) has more than 30 years of experience in arranging project-related internships for international students.
Since 2017, the Academic Internship Council has offered the internship program in Vancouver completely new and enables you to get to know the world of work in Vancouver through cooperation with different companies and organizations.
If you would like to do an internship in Vancouver with our partner AIC, just follow our 5 steps to apply:
Step 1: Get information and advice
First, please inform yourself about the prerequisites for participation, the program fees as well as the dates and deadlines for the internship program in Vancouver. If you are also enthusiastic about the particularly suitable subject areas in Vancouver, you can apply for an internship in Vancouver.
Contact our advisory team – our student advisors will inform you about the documents that you need to submit for your application. We can be reached by phone, email and personally in our office in Frankfurt and will be happy to answer your questions about internships abroad in Vancouver.
Step 2: Submit your application
In the next step, please send us your application documents in English (cover letter, curriculum vitae, performance overview) by email. We’ll review the documents and give you feedback by email or phone. As soon as your documents are complete and in order, we will forward them to the AIC team in Vancouver.
Step 3: Discuss interests and wishes with the AIC
In the next step you will be contacted by your personal contact person at the AIC in Vancouver by email. You then fill out a detailed online questionnaire and upload relevant documents to the AIC database. Your contact person will get an initial picture of your competencies, interests and professional goals.
As part of a comprehensive preliminary talk that takes place via Skype, you and your AIC contact person will concretize your ideas and discuss which type of internship is suitable for you. Your contacts will then start looking for an internship abroad in Vancouver that is individually tailored to you.
Step 4: Complete application training
A professional application training of AIC prepare yourself optimally to the front of upcoming job interviews.
Here you can find out how a “typical” job interview with a Canadian employer works and how you will master it successfully. With the Skype workshop you can be sure to make the best possible impression on your potential internship company.
Step 5: Complete an interview and get an internship
As soon as the employees of the Academic Internship Council have found a suitable internship for you, they will make an appointment for the interview, which will also take place via Skype.
If the interview is positive and you receive an acceptance for an internship, you now have to decide whether you want to accept it. Otherwise, your contact persons at the AIC will look for another internship tailored to your needs.
After you have decided on a specific internship in Vancouver, you can apply for your visa for Canada with the support of the Academic Internship Council.
Just like your contact persons at the AIC, we are of course also available to support you with any questions you may have in advance of the application and during the application process.
