Partner Post from AIESEC By: Jason Kim
That lively spirit of innovation is alive at your workplace and you want to hire the right people to keep it that way. While companies commonly hire local interns, there are distinct benefits that an international intern can bring to your team.
To begin, a diverse workplace can enhance creativity as your global intern brings cultural awareness and a different perspective, which can also assist in gaining insight on how your company relates to international markets.
As newer companies, there is not always enough time to deal with certain logistical issues of the recruitment process. This is one of the key areas where AIESEC and its Global Internship Program can offer solutions. AIESEC handles such travel logistics as the visa process and accommodations. But more significantly, they help the intern adapt to the new culture. The local chapter welcomes and supports the newly arrived intern and works intently with your company to ensure a smooth internship.
Hiring an AIESEC intern also aligns with the fast-paced environment of your company, as the process is both hassle-free and cost-effective with customizable hiring and flexible scheduling.
Yet, ultimately, your company demands someone who is both skilled and genuinely passionate about the field with an eagerness to learn. You want to discover that gem who can help to advance the innovative goals that you strive for as a company. With the Global Internship Program, you can choose from a pool of candidates from different countries, all of whom have university-level education and relevant experience. These candidates would also have passed several rounds of screening to ensure that you can select from only the best talent.
Present in over 110 countries, AIESEC is the largest student-run non-profit organization in the world. Over 60,000 globally-minded members work to facilitate internships around the globe.
