How it works

What happens if you decide to go on an internship or a volunteering project?

It’s important to know that you do not have to be decided yet. We are here to guide you through the process of picking the right opportunity for you. This means that our personal guidance is no-strings-attached, without obligation and free of charge. You will only pay a project fee when you have decided to book a project.

Find a fitting opportunity

We want to make sure that you find an opportunity that is your perfect match. An AIESECer from your nearest local office will be assigned as your personal consultant and will guide you to find a fitting opportunity

In a consultation (over WhatsApp, a phone call or online chat) they will ask you for your wishes, your interests and your personal goals for this experience. If you want to already find out about our opportunities, you can book a chat with one of them

03.

Apply to a project

Based on your preferences, our advisors will personally select projects for you. If you find a project you like, you can apply to one – or multiple – projects. You will fill in your online profile that you made when you signed up in step 1, to make sure the opportunity provider and the AIESEC abroad know who you are. Applying for projects is still free of charge and without any obligations

04.

Selection process

After your application, we will reach out to the AIESEC office abroad to notify them of your application.

The selection process is different per opportunity. It can include a CV check, interviews with the opportunity provider (for example the company or NGO you want to work at) or interviews by the AIESEC office abroad. We will help you by doing a CV check and preparing you for the interviews.

AIESEC is located in over 120+ countries and territories, with thousands of local offices all over the world. Your local office in the Netherlands will guide you through the preparation of your experience, while a local office abroad is your support during your stay.

Prepare for your experience

Once you get accepted, you will receive an offer from your AIESEC office. All there is left is accepting your offer by signing the acceptance note and your contract.

After you transferred the project fee, the project is set. Now, you will be preparing for your experience. Booking flights, reading up on the culture and more.

06.

Go abroad!

Your adventure begins today! The local AIESEC office of your destination is waiting for your to welcome you with open arms. From this moment on, they will be your main personal guidance.

You will get in touch with the AIESEC community on your destination, including all the other volunteers and interns!

Don’t worry, we didn’t forget you! We will check-in with you sometimes to see how it goes. And we are always available for questions.

07.

Upon your return

After booking your return we ask you to do an evaluation of your experience. How was it? What did you learn? How have you grown as a person throughout?

That’s where your experience ends! We hope to see you again for another amazing experience.
