If you are a college student or a young professional looking to gain experience in the United States, then ITN’s J-1 Internship and Trainee Programs might be a great fit for you. These programs are designed to provide participants with on-the-job training in their field of interest while also allowing them to experience the culture and way of life in the US.
ITN offers a variety of J-1 services for business and hospitality internships and trainee programs. Participants can choose from a range of programs, including the J-1 Hospitality Internships and Trainee programs, which can last for a maximum of 12 months, and the J-1 Programs in Business, which can last for up to 18 months.
During your program, you will be required to have two important documents: the DS2019 and the DS7002. The DS2019, also known as the “Certificate of Eligibility for Exchange Visitor Status,” is a prerequisite for attending an interview at the US Embassy or Consulate to obtain the J-1 visa. The DS7002, or “Training/Internship Placement Plan,” provides a description of the training program and must be approved by ITN’s compliance department.
ITN’s J-1 All-Inclusive Program is a signature program that provides participants with access to over 200 of ITN’s exclusive partner Host Companies. By enrolling in this program, a regional ITN representative will guide you from registration to arrival in the United States. This program includes eligibility checks, prescreening interviews, assistance with J-1 filing application, DS7002 creation, DS2019 issuance, medical insurance, preparation tips for visa interviews, and an arrival package.
If you want to experience two different Host Organizations during your 12-month training program, you can opt for ITN’s Route 66 Program, which includes all the services provided in the J-1 All-Inclusive Program.
If you prefer to find your own training program at a Host Organization, you can still benefit from ITN’s J-1 Self-Placed Program. ITN can provide J-1 visa filing assistance for programs in Hospitality Management, Culinary Arts, Business Management, Law, and Arts & Sciences. This program includes eligibility checks, assistance with J-1 filing application, DS7002 creation, DS2019 issuance, medical insurance, preparation tips for visa interviews, and 24/7 support.
To be eligible for a J-1 Intern Program, you must be between the ages of 18 – 35 and either be a current student pursuing a degree at the Associate’s Degree level or higher or a graduate who has received a degree within the last 12 months from an accredited program at the Associates level or higher.
To qualify for a J-1 Trainee Program, participants must be between the ages of 18 – 35 and either be a graduate from an accredited institution at the Associate’s Degree level or higher with at least 12 months of related work experience outside of the United States or a young professional with at least 5 years (60 months) of experience in their field of interest.
If you are interested in applying for ITN’s J-1 Internship and Trainee Programs, you can start by completing the application form on their website. An ITN representative will get in touch via email with further program information and eligibility checks.
