Sophie and Tibor Enjoying Their Time in the USA!

26 juni 2017

In early April my boyfriend Tibor and I took a flight to San Francisco, where we both are taking part in an 8-month internship. For a long time, we have both dreamed of an internship in the USA, but if you've been together for a number of years, it's not easy to say goodbye to others for a long time. Therefore, we chose to be placed in the same city. Because how cool is it to say that our first house together is in San Francisco?! We are having a fantastic time here in California. Tibor works at a real estate office in downtown San Francisco, and I am doing a marketing internship in Silicon Valley. During the week, of course, we are working at our internships, but the weekends are always full of fun activities! For example, in San Francisco, every weekend there is a festival we go to, to meet with friends. There are also many nice areas to explore, delicious restaurants and a lot of cozy bars. In addition, we also like adventures outside the city. California has beautiful scenery, nice beaches and lots of nice little villages. Day trips to Santa Cruz, Lake Tahoe or Yosemite are the things we are doing regularly. But, we have also taken the time to see more of America! So we have traveled through California, Arizona, and Nevada together for our internships, and went on a road trip to Oregon with friends, during Memorial weekend. After our internship, in the grace period, we will travel together through Texas, Louisiana, and Mississippi. There are still many trips to come in the upcoming months. We are so enjoying our time here! This experience is truly a once in a lifetime experience, and I find it very special that we can share this together. We would really recommend an internship in the USA to everyone.      Read more >

Welcome Mandy!

13 december 2016

We would like to introduce a new member of our team! Please welcome Mandy!  We have asked Mandy a few questions to get to know her even better!  So tell us, WHO is Mandy?I'm 25 years old, I love to make music, travelling, visiting concerts and festivals, binge-watching my favourite TV shows and I'm especially fond of cats. I love to explore nature - tall mountains, deep fjords, long hikes. I'm very interested in different cultures and languages, especially American and French. As part of my International Leisure Management studies, I've completed a marketing major in the US (St. Louis to be precise), which sparked my interest for the country.What have you seen of the world so far and which country is on top of your bucket list?When it comes to travelling, you could say that I'm a late bloomer. My first flight wasn't until I was 20! I went to Canada, by myself, and I loved it. After that, I decided to fit in as much 'adventure time' as possible, which brought me to the US, Australia, Malaysia, Norway, Poland, France and a few more European countries. At this point, my bucket list is still pretty long, but Iceland (northern lights!), South Africa, Japan and New Zealand are definitely up high. But my number one priority would be to go back to the US and Canada.What has been your most remarkable experience in the USI've absolutely loved my time there and made some friends who I still see on a regular basis. It's really hard to pinpoint one particular experience, but I remember when my new-found friends and I went to New York for our fall break. The first time we went to Times Square, on a Saturday night, it was breathtaking.There's so much hustle and bustle going on, the pictures I had seen didn't do it justice. It's something everyone has to experience at least once in their lives.     Read more >

Welcome Evelyn!

7 december 2016

Great news! We have a new team member!  We would like to introduce Evelyn! She has joined our placement management team and she is really looking forward to getting started. We decided to ask Evelyn some questions: So tell us, WHO is Evelyn?I am a 25-year-old girl born and raised in Groningen and currently living in Amsterdam. My two greatest passions in life are sports and travelling. My interest in people and the world around me may be triggered by the Croatian blood running through my veins since my grandmother is Croatian. My passion for sports started when I was a young girl and since then I have been involved in many different sports such as gymnastics, horseback riding, soccer, tennis, snowboarding, mountain biking, footvolley and hopefully many more to come! What have you seen of the world so far and which country is on top of your bucket list?I have visited most countries in Europe, but of course, there are still lots of great places to be discovered! After my high school graduation, I travelled with a camper van through Australia and New-Zealand with one of my friends and we had the time of our lives! We drove through amazing scenery and met people from all over the world. Outside of Europe, I've also been to Iceland and America. There are so many countries left for me to discover, but for now on the top of my bucket list are, India, Argentina, and Indonesia. What has been your most remarkable experience in the USA?Actually, I have had multiple remarkable experiences in the USA. One of them was standing on top of the Rockefeller Center with a breathtaking view over New York! We started looking out at the city in the afternoon and stayed to watch the sunset. The view over the big apple changed so many times that it didn't even feel real. I also loved the rooftop farmland which I visited in Brooklyn. This location is used for educational programs to help children learn them that vegetables are not manufactured in a factory but actually grown on farmland. Overall, I just loved the enthusiasm of the Americans!    Read more >

2 juni 2016

Meet Jonas Linke!  (4th from the Left) Jonas Linke is a German student currently pursuing a Master’s Degree in Business Administration at the University of Osnabrueck. He applied, through us, for a J-1 internship in the United States in International Business management and administration. He has been an intern since Febuary 2016 and his internship will end in July. He applied to the iLead program and was chosen among 59 other J-1 interns to participate. He spent 6 days in Washington D.C. attending various workshops and activities and got to meet a lot of international students from around the world. "The 58 participants (58 since 2 people could not take part due to visa related reasons) were from 30 different countries which led to a very intercultural group and which was simply amazing! The whole group was lovely and happy about spending these days together and exchanging with each other about our home countries, our cities and experiences in the US, our internships..." Every morning they would all meet up and have breakfast at 7:00am and proceed with various activities and training such as: Orientation & Intercultural Training, Leadership Training, The Rule of Law, Civics 101 and Changemakers. They would then have a lunch break to later continue with other activities. In the Evening, they would have dinner at 6:30pm and attend events such as: TED Talks, they would have Leadership activities and presentations. "The CIEE staff deserves a lot of credit - they were very nice and very professional! Everything was coordinated very well. We had lessons in Leadership, Changemaker, Intercultural Training... There was a speaker of the Department of State as well sharing his experiences with us and talking about young Leadership". Jonas has explained to us that he has had a great experience in participating in the Intern Leadership Enrichment and Development program: "Saying goodbye the day after was a kind of challenging since you got used to each other and we had to realize that there are people you are likely not to see again. However each participant knows that we have made many new friends around the world. It was an overall great and valuable experience and everybody has very good memories of this time." Read more >
