Employer profile

You will need to provide us with basic details about your company. These include your area of business, the location where the intern will work, how many employees you have, the working hours, etc. You may also want to include a company brochure if you have one.

Study discipline

The employer can clearly define what kind of student is needed, from which general discipline, or even what should be his field of study. IAESTE predominantly works with students in STEM fields, but we can also source students from other disciplines if required.

Study level

Depending on the work available and your expectations, you can request interns to have a particular level of study. This can range from students at the beginning of their studies, right through to recent graduates and in some cases post-grads. Our goal is to provide you with an intern with the right skill and experience level to bring to your company.

The official working language of IAESTE is English, so all our interns have English language skills, but if you require additional languages, all you need to do is let us know and we will do our best to find the right candidate that has the language skills you require.

Additional requirements

Your company might require particular skills or experience beyond the right study field or level. If that's the case, all you need to do is let us know and we'll look within our vast network to find someone with those skills for you.

Work description

We ask that you provide us with as much detail as possible about the work the intern will be doing in the form of a work description. This ensures not only that we can find you the right intern, but also that the intern understands what is expected of them.

IAESTE internships can be anywhere from six weeks to twelve months, and sometimes up to eighteen months if the situation allows. This range ensures that you can find an intern for whatever long or short term project you have in mind.

All IAESTE on-site internships must be paid for by the employer. In reality, this means as a minimum, a cost of living allowance that covers the intern's accommodation, food, and local travel. 

Medium c19c69ff 15c0 4fb8 b805 f4c906a781f1


In nearly all cases, an intern's accommodation is arranged by the local or national IAESTE office. It's one of the great benefits of hiring an IAESTE intern! Of course, if you have internal sources of accommodation, you're welcome to let us know.
