Meet our IR partners for the Global Talent program!

Olá, Hello, Ahoj, Hola, 你好 (Nǐ hǎo), नमस्ते (namaste) – our international relations partners for the Global Talent program are welcoming you!

It is important that countries work together as much as possible, especially in an international organisation like AIESEC. Even though AIESEC is present in 126 countries, every country has special international relations (IR) partners they work together with. Why? Because this makes the application process and overall experience better for everyone involved! The Netherlands works together with Portugal, The US, Czech Republic, Brazil, Hong Kong (China), and India for our Global Talent program.

What are the benefits?                                                                                       

The purpose of having an IR partner is to guarantee a smooth collaboration between the two countries. Moreover, you have a lot of information about each other’s working style and the situation in the country itself, and our IR partners will keep us well informed about how the applications of Dutch applicants (anyone registered in The Netherlands) are proceeding. For example, when someone wants to do an internship via AIESEC in The Netherlands to Portugal, we already know that the living and working conditions will be very good since we have a lot of experience with Dutch interns in Portugal.

They picked us!                                                                                     

 Working together with such diverse countries is exciting! AIESEC The Netherlands is very happy to be able to work together with its IR partners, and vice versa. How do we know this? Because we asked these entities why they like to work together with us. India told us that they are excited to work with the Netherlands because their companies are always welcoming and are eager to have trainees from the Netherlands. The US told us, that their companies are always looking for Dutch-speaking trainees. Therefore, a partnership with us is a win-win situation – the right applicants get matched with their dream internships!

So, if you would like to do an internship abroad and have the experience of a lifetime, check out one of our IR partners, explore their culture and boost your career!

A third type of intelligence, only introduced after the start of the 21st century, is CQ; Cultural Quotient, or cultural intelligence.
