With traditional exchange at a standstill, AIESEC US and six AIESEC LCs are adapting to this crisis and have stepped up to participate in the Virtual Professional Program. The VPP will help companies source young talent for short-term projects, diversifying the work environment and company culture. Programs span between 6 and 12 weeks and focus primarily on business administration, business development, and marketing with our global partners in Mexico, Brazil and Columbia. The fee to post the opportunity on the AIESEC platform and source the intern is $1,200 per Exchange Participant. Wages need to be at least the minimum wage of the country from which the exchange participant is operating. AIESEC Miami, Michigan, Northwestern, San Jose, UCLA and Washington D.C. are leading the pilot under direction from Marina Manova, Incoming Global Exchange Director for AIESEC US. If you are interested in learning more about the program, please contact Marina at marinam@aiesecus.org.

 

 

 

As young AIESECers develop their Local Committees, enter the workforce, and navigate their early careers, the guidance of a Mentor has never been so vital. Whether you want to share your experience with an AIESEC student or recent grad, or if you are ready to start the journey as a Mentee, we invite you to join the program!

The Alumni Mentorship Program will run January to June 2021 and consist of a minimum of 6 topic-driven virtual meet-ups between mentors and mentees. You will cover subjects like networking, getting the most out of your AIESEC experience, job interviewing, and managing change in the workplace. Deadline to register: November 23, 2020. Mentor selection deadline: December 4, 2020.

The Mentorship Program is a benefit of paid membership. Click here to learn more and enroll. Answer the call and become an AIESEC Mentor (or Mentee) in 2021!
