2. Application and Selection
First step is the application form. 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.
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.
- 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.
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.
