Frequently Asked Questions
Your company completes a Training/Internship Placement Plan (TIPP) syllabus specifically outlining the goals and the objective of the internship program. The purpose of the TIPP is to ensure that your company and the Intern have a mutual understanding of the Intern’s duties and expectations. Your company will need to provide a mid-term and final evaluation based on the Intern accomplishing the TIPP objectives.
Our interns come from varied socio-economic backgrounds. Most of our interns only apply for paid positions. We require that our interns are paid a stipend of at least $1200 a month to assist with the cost of living in the U.S. Unpaid internships must meet certain regulatory requirements in order to be considered.
Providing housing, meals, and/or transportation is completely at the discretion of your company. While the Intern and CHI welcome and appreciate any assistance you may offer, you are not obligated to provide room and board or transportation.
All CHI Intern applicants are required to thoroughly complete an application form as well as submit a letter of intent, resume, three letters of recommendation, and verification of English language proficiency. All this information is available for your review. Also, if there are additional corporate requirements such as Intern’s school transcripts, sample work and/or request for a phone interview, CHI is able to furnish and arrange these requests.
The J-1 visa is issued to overseas visitors for educational and cultural exchange purposes only. While an Intern may earn money, it is not a work visa. The J-1 visa category was established by the U.S. government through the Mutual Educational and Cultural Exchange Act of 1961 in order to promote the foreign policy objectives of the U.S. and to increase mutual understanding between the people of the U.S. and other countries through educational and cultural activities.
