Why you should choose AIESEC for your international exchange

Whether you’re interested in an international internship opportunity or volunteering experience, you might question yourself why you should choose AIESEC instead of another organization or maybe even trying to arrange everything by yourself.

In case you’re not familiar with how our experiences work, click here for more information or check one of our previous blog posts for all the details!

These are the benefits of choosing AIESEC to handle your exchange process:

 

Logistic support: Your experience manager will help you handle everything before, during and after your trip. Helping you choose the right opportunity, informing you about accommodation and basic living costs, offering support with burocracy (such as visas, travel insurance and other essentials), preparing you for safe travelling and easy integration, monitoring the quality of your experience while you’re abroad and collecting your feedback when you come back are all responsibilities of ours!

Clear job description: AIESEC will ensure that the project has clear, aligned tasks, objectives, working hours and duration from the start.
Adequate preparation: Depending on your destination, the cultural shock can be very overwhelming. We prepare an outgoing seminar, so you know what to expect when you arrive at the country you’re exchanging to.

Interesting partnerships: Becoming an intern at successful multinational companies can be very challenging. AIESEC simplifies this process and creates uncomplicated opportunities with companies like DPDHL Group, PwC, Nokia and Microsoft, among others.

Going beyond your job description: Regardless of your project or destination, you’ll be able to choose what to do with your time off. Travel, explore, socialize and get to know a whole new country and culture!

Sustainable Development Goals contribution: As a partner of the United Nations, AIESEC aligned every volunteering project with at least one Sustainable Development Goal. Not only will you be supporting a local community or organization, you’ll also have an impact on the bigger picture.

Make a difference: Volunteers will see first-hand how impactful their work is in every project that is available. Interns, on the other hand, will be able to share their knowledge and apply it, introducing innovation to a company.

New perspective: An international experience will introduce you to many different ways of thinking, and possibly even different ways of working. An exchange participant will be confronted with a new reality and it will help them build their world vision in a more inclusive, diverse and accurate way.

Major focus on personal growth: One of the main goals of this exchange is that you invest in yourself. Developing your self awareness, leadership potential and multiple soft or hard skills is a big part of your exchange with AIESEC.

 

We hope this list convinced you to take a look at our open opportunities! At AIESEC we thrive to make our experiences as accessible as possible, so don’t hesitate to get in touch with us through our Instagram, Facebook or LinkedIn.
