Becoming a Corporate Partner
There are countless reasons to hire a Brazil Scientific Mobility Program student as a summer intern. All have gone through a rigorous screening process by the Brazilian government as well as by their hosting American universities. They are well-organized, excellent English-speakers, and possess strong written and interpersonal skills. Further, by hosting a BSMP intern, employers are able to evaluate and create a connection to a well-qualified candidate for future employment and company growth in Brazil while increasing diversity at their U.S.-based operations. IIE will provide work authorization and all visa administration throughout the internship.
Employers providing internships should be prepared to meet the following criteria:
- Provide a meaningful internship experience related to student’s field of study.
- Ensure that the internship lasts for a minimum of 35 hours per week for 8 - 16 weeks.
- Assist with locating appropriate temporary housing that is near to public transportation or that provides an easy commute.
- Provide regular feedback to the student (schedule meetings to review assignments, offer guidance, career and education advice) as well as a written evaluation of the student at the conclusion of the internship.
