September 22nd, 2017 Through a first Skype interview they immediately get all the information they need so they can start looking for you straight away. That being said, there are a couple of forms you will need to fill out. The sooner you do this, the smoother the process goes. I was lucky that the first company immediately worked out. I say lucky, but Stage-USA obviously played a big role in it, finding a perfectly fitting internship. Regarding the question of what could be improved, there is nothing I can think of right now. I applied pretty late, and I still got a dream internship. So I can't complain at all! Read more >

September 21st, 2017 I have had several questions regarding the internship and they were answered very quickly by the people responsible. Getting the US visa was very simple due to the simple instructions that were inside the package I received Visa forms. From the beginning, I have been told the housing was an element that the applicant had to sort himself. However, I feel Stage-USA can add value to their services by spending resources in this area, possibly by giving the applicant a few options to choose from as to provide a small extra service to the applicant.

August 21, 2017 My internship program has been an enriching experience, to say the least. It has been a pleasure to have been given the opportunity to work with so many clients, learning the different natures of their businesses, and finding the best way possible to provide our financial management services. I achieved my goal from the beginning, which was to maximize this experience by learning and working amongst my peers. I have also gained such valuable insight into this industry and the clients that we offer our services to. Overall, I would say that I was able to perform consistently to the best of my abilities whilst setting the bar higher each time. The internship program for me exceeded my expectations. My mentors in the firm have guided me throughout the internship, watching me grow with the company through the work that I do. We have such a conducive environment for working here. My supervisor saw the potential in my capabilities and from the beginning of this internship never set a limit to what I could accomplish. That is what is vital in a mentor, that he sees untapped potential and molds you to become better at what you do, in all that you do. I am commending the service Stage USA has provided.

Not only is it incredibly expensive compared to any other city I’ve visited, there are various hurdles (12-month lease terms, minimum income requirements) that are convenient to know beforehand.

Working in the New York Public Library, Lincoln Center and in the Hamptons and with clients like Armani, Versace and Ferragamo were things I could only dream of. Hard work is expected in the American Business Culture, but success is also rewarded. It was a great experience and some of my colleagues even became really close friends.  What did you love the most about New York city? I think I instantly fell in love with NYC. The best thing about being in the city for a long time and what I loved the most is that you experience NYC more as a local. There is always something to do in the city, it never sleeps as they are saying and that's the truth. The nightlife, restaurants, central park, attractions, street performances but also the beautiful Skyline are all things that I think you could not experience in a better place. Not to forget about the holidays like Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's Eve.  Here you can see the beautiful New York skyline.

Stage-USA did a great job clarifying and explaining the process step by step. Even with setbacks, Stage-USA always had a positive approach and worked on solutions. The J-1 visa process takes very long and requires patience and a lot of knowledge about the process. Stage-USA delivered the perfect support. Read more >

Pascalle in New York City

Stage-USA has been more than helpful in arranging everything, including the arrangement of my J1-visa. The support I received from them was outstanding, and also during my time in New York they were more than willing to help me out. Every question was followed up with a quick response from their end. I don’t have anything to complain, the only thing I would like to change is to be able to stay in NY forever.

Marketing Internship in NYC

My internship in New York is amazing! NYC is a great city, and literally ‘’the city that never sleeps’’. There hasn’t been one dull moment, I have been enjoying every single bit of the city. It is a whole other experience to live in New York, compared to the ‘’regular tourist visit’’. It is still a chaotic and busy city, but you have enough time to explore everything on your own time. You experience the city as a real New Yorker, not as a tourist. I absolutely love New York! Read more >

Business Internship in Boca Raton

The working environment is perfect: there is time to work hard and there is time to do some catching up. The people here are genuinely interested and really nice. I feel that my internship is going well. The first weeks I had to adjust to the weather, language, culture and new working space. After that, I quickly found my way in the company. I learned a lot of things about marketing and sales and my colleagues are always here to answers questions, no matter whether it’s a personal, cultural or a work-related question. They also give me the chance to see the country and to take part of the culture. Last week I even got to go to prom with the students here.  At this moment I am working on my end project for school and I cannot believe how fast the time went. Read more >

Sports Management

I am very happy with the support I have received from Stage-USA. All the paperwork and administration was arranged on time, I always got immediate response to e-mails and questions. They prepare you really well for the interview with the company. I have nothing to complain about. The only thing I can think of that you have to do some jobs that aren’t really on the level of a Bachelor or Master degree student. But on the other hand, every company has those kind of tasks. And to be honest, if you decide to do a foreign internship, you have to be at a point in your life where you can function on your own, have your own ideas and input, so you can make the best out of your internship yourself.

Sports Research

I’m really glad I took this opportunity and I feel I learned a lot. Of course there are also some things about my internship that I don't like that much but this is more based on the area where I am. Like there is hardly any public transport. The internship is a bit different then how it was described in my training plan. I can work on a variety of projects, which give me a good understanding of market research. However, there are also some points which I don’t have experienced yet, like managing clients or attending professional or social events by the company.  Read more >
