Process to participate
The Selection and Application
After joining and understanding AIESEC you can enter a review process to assess your experiences and motivation for going on an AIESEC exchange.
AIESEC provides resources, training and support to prepare you to live and work in another country. This includes visa processing.
You will be trained and given access to use our on-line database of opportunities. The more flexible you are the better.
AIESEC members in your host chapter provide support and assistance in getting setup in your new environment while providing opportunities for cultural and social activities.
AIESEC supports you in making the readjustment process when you return home after your internship
The Selection and Application
After joining and understanding AIESEC, you can enter a review process to assess your experiences and motivation for going on an AIESEC exchange. This is a physical process consisting of selection interview, language tests and other steps depending on the country that you are applying from.
The selection process aims to ensure that everyone participating in an AIESEC exchange is suitable and will have a positive experience while on exchange. It is comprised of at least 1 stages:
Selection Review Board: a board that will interview you to assess your suitability to become an exchange participant in several areas.
You may find additional selection requirements based on the country that you are applying from.
If you have any questions please select your country from the drop down menu in the top left corner to contact the AIESEC office in your country.
This step happens before leaving for your exchange experience and actually starts before you have matched yourself to a suitable internship. It consists of areas such as:
Logistical preparation. Ensuring that you are physically and legally prepared to work in another country.
Community Involvement. To help you gain an understanding of issues facing the world and your own community.
Direct Country preparation. Preparation on the country you will be going to and also how to cope with the pressures of living in a foreign culture.
AIESEC preparation. Providing you with knowledge about the exchange program and the roles of various entities.
The preparation step is critically important to ensure that you are ready to make the most out of your experience in a personal and professional sense. We also see it as an important part in ensuring that the people participating in the exchange program understand their responsibilities and the role that they play in fulfilling AIESEC’s vision.
By this stage you have been through the selection process and have become an official AIESEC exchange participant (EP). Now you are able to start being matched to a suitable internship.
You will be trained and given access to use our on-line database of internship opportunities. The more flexible you are in terms of geographical preferences the better.
The most fulfilling step from here is experiencing the actual internship itself. AIESEC will provide you with much more information on what to expect during your internship experience and what kind of involvement you can have with AIESEC and the local environment while you are on your exchange experience in a new country. AIESEC members in your host chapter provide support in receiving you, getting logistically setup while providing opportunities for cultural and social activities.
AIESEC supports you in making the readjustment process when you return home. We hope that your experience opens up a world of opportunities to create a better society for us all. Also, if you’re interested to continue your AIESEC career, you can try the leadership opportunities available for you in your country.
