OVERVIEW

IAESTE trainees have academic backgrounds in Engineering, Science, Information Technology or other technical disciplines and have excellent English. Trainees can work for 2 to 12 months, so are suitable for short-or long-term projects. Employers specify the exact professional and personal skills they require in a trainee and IAESTE Ireland will match them with the best candidate. Employers receive the candidate’s CV, cover letter and academic transcript and can arrange a phone interview if required. Once the employer accepts the candidate for a traineeship, IAESTE Ireland will arrange accommodation for the trainee and meet them on arrival. Members of the IAESTE Ireland Local Committee arrange a social programme for trainees, so they have a peer support system and get to see some of the country!

COSTS

The only cost to the employer is the salary of the trainee, which must be sufficient to cover their living costs in Ireland.

BENEFITS

IAESTE is a competitive programme so trainees are well motivated and highly qualified. Both the sending country and IAESTE Ireland screen trainees before nominating them for a traineeship, to ensure the best possible match. Trainees bring technical, language and intercultural skills to the workplace and are a valuable source of new international connections. In addition, every traineeship offered in Ireland guarantees a similar opportunity abroad for an Irish student.

EMPLOYER TESTIMONIALS

Prof C Williams, Dean of Faculty, Engineering, Mathematics and Science, University of Dublin, Trinity College:

“We offered three traineeships to incoming IAESTE students, providing them with an opportunity for 10 weeks study with the best research groups on campus. The feedback from the supervisors was uniformly positive, praising not only the educational standard of the trainees but also their enthusiasm and work ethic. This demonstration of the high calibre of the IAESTE student prompted the Dean to repeat his support the next year, with the intention that this marks the beginning of a long and fruitful working exchange with IAESTE.

In addition to sourcing outstanding trainees, facilitating them was straightforward, produced minimal paperwork, and was managed throughout by efficient and helpful coordinator-all the hallmarks of a well run programme, with little or no disruption to the daily business of the Faculty.

TTCD is proud to support the IAESTE programme, and would have no hesitation in encouraging other universities, research groups and businesses to partake.”

Marie O’Sullivan, University Relations Staffing Partner EMEA, VMware, Cork:

“IAESTE has provided us with a great opportunity to participate in their global student exchange programme. We received applications from some of the best universities across Europe and have facilitated traineeships for top students in our Technical Support team on our Cork campus.

The IAESTE team are extremely organised and their commitment to creating a top experience for both the companies and students involved ensures a win-win for everyone. We are looking forward to be involved again in future!”

The main thing that I learned from my IAESTE internship is that different cultures do things differently and there is no correct way of doing things in terms of life or work' - Edwin Henry, China 2017 #EXCHANGE #workabroad #travelphotography
