Employers | Internship Program

Overview

The Internship Program provides companies with entry-level university students or recent graduates from around the world.

Our participants make valuable contributions as interns in U.S. businesses and organizations for up to 12 months. While here, they develop practical skills and reinforce their academic studies in fields such as hospitality, business management, marketing, web development, and accounting.

Consequently, you will be partnered with a participant who is eager to help your business and who will enrich your workplace with new culture and ideas.

Why Should You Hire Internationally?

Having international talent offers employers huge incentives in a number of ways. Plus, working with TransUSA Exchange maximizes those benefits.

You’ll Save Money, and Lots of It

First, our recruitment services are free for employers. And yes, we mean free. We don’t sacrifice quality to give you that service free of charge, either. We provide dedicated support throughout every step of the placement process. In other words, you’re always in the loop.

You save on a lot more than just our services, though. International students don’t have to pay Social Security, Medicare, or Federal Unemployment Tax. In fact, many companies have reported saving up to 10% in payroll taxes from this exemption alone.

Finally, international participants already have health insurance.

You’ll Change Lives

Not only does hiring internationally positively affect the participants’ futures, but it grows your team as well. Your staff will have the opportunity to gain international perspectives on hospitality around the globe, which can only improve the quality of their care and service.
