The J-1 Exchange Visitor Program provides opportunities for around 300,000 foreign visitors from 200 countries and territories per year to experience and be placed with U.S. employers. Quality and qualified participants gain work experience with a U.S. employer from 12 to 18 months. Administrative support including participant health insurance coverage, paperwork processing, housing, social security cards, evaluations are all handled by U.S. Department of State –designated sponsors such as Alliance Abroad. Some interns receive a stipend via programs in their home countries or regions which encourage gaining global work experience as part of career development. American employers do not bear any costs except what would normally be paid to Americans performing the same role. The J-1 Exchange Visitor Program is a little-known source of interns with skills in programming, business, product development, R&D and more. You will hear from experts how the program works as well as meet some past and current interns.
