TN FORM AND TN ID
The TN Form is your online profile of all the opportunities that AIESEC has available at any one moment. TN (Traineeship Nominee) is the term used to refer to the traineeship while the TN Taker is the organization or company that will be host to the traineeship. The TN ID is the identification number that each TN is given as a traineeship (ex: TN-In-CH-US-2010-1999). Each TN Form gives all the information about the specific TN:

TN Manager: the email of the AIESECer in the other country who is in charge of selecting an EP for this opportunity. Be very nice to this person as they decide whether you are accepted or not. Organization Name: the name of the TN Taker which is the company or organization Status: See status below Exchange Type: See TN Types above TN Fee: this is a fee between AIESEC and the organization, NOT the salary that the EP receives NOR an extra fee that the EP has to pay to apply to that TN Payment: the salary that the EP receives Working Hours: the hours of each day the EP would be expected to work Job Description: the description of the job that this opportunity is for

The status explanations of TN Forms are: New Available On hold Matched Realized the TN Form has just been put on the system the TN is available and looking for applicants the TN is currently reviewing all the applicants or has had an issue with the TN the TN has already accepted another EP (they havent started the TN yet) the TN has already accepted another EP (they have arrived and started the TN)

MATCHING TIPS:
Reply to your mails Even if you are not interested, it is really important to send a reply to every email! Dedication Spend time on myaiesec.net and checking your mails at least once a day! Keep track Use an excel sheet to keep track of all the TNs you have applied for and the follow up needed! Here is an example Be flexible Keep in mind your requirements, but try to be as flexible as possible when matching especially on the regions and countries Make sure your CV and motivational letter suit the job you are applying for It only takes a few minutes to customize your documents, and it can make a big difference when you are applying Use a sample promotion email. It is a good idea to provide ENOUGH information in the emails you send. Know what you want! Before starting the matching process it is important to know exactly what you want out of your experience set expectations with your VPX Be resourceful If there is an internship you really want and the TN manager is not replying to emails, try to call the LC office or send a text message to the TN Manager. You can find contact information in the networking page of myaiesec.net Understand your role Read carefully the IXQPS and ask your VPX if you have any questions!

TN/EP LOOKUP
If you are ever given a TN ID (ex: TN-In-US-CH-2010-1999) and want to see the information about that TN, copy the TN and paste it into MyAIESEC.net> Exchange> TN/EP Lookup. This will take you to the TN Form of that TN.

You will receive emails describing a matching mania for a specific segment (ex: ET TNs in China) and it will give a time, date, and one or more of the following: Chat website Skype ID of TN Manager Signup Form TN Search Tool Link (excel showing all their TNs) If you are interested in the specific country, participate in the Matching Mania and ask the TN Manager all the questions in the Questions to Ask TN Manager section. The date and time of the event are generally given in GMT time so you will have to do the time conversion to work for the US time zones. To find out how what our time zone is in comparison to GMT, go here: http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/city.html?n=195 and look at Current Time Zone Offset.

APPLY FOR TNS GENERAL


Normal Steps for Applying for TNs are: Find the TN that you want to apply to Change your Personal Materials to be specific for the Specific TN Send Emails to TN Manager Ask all your questions about the opportunity Interview Verbal Acceptance from TN Manager EP Acceptance Note is sent by you TN Acceptance Note is received by you

APPLY FOR TNS: CHANGE PERSONAL MATERIALS


Once youve found a TN youre interested, get the TN ID and TN Manager Email from the TN Form on MyAIESEC.net. In any first email that you send to the TN Manager expressing interest in their TN, you always do the following: Attach CV (Resume) See examples: http://www.myaiesec.net/content/viewfile.do?opern=next&contentid=10088252 Attach Motivation Letter tailored to that specific TN See examples: http://www.myaiesec.net/content/viewfile.do?contentid=10088254 Put in Subject line French EP Applying for (Fill in TN ID Here) (Ex: French EP Applying for TN-In-US-CH-1099) While you are not required to attach a motivation letter, it will help you stand out from other applicants in the event that it is a popular TN. If you are applying to an MT or TT traineeship, a motivation letter is an absolute must do. You should CC your EP Manager from AIESEC ESCP in all the emails you send so that they are kept up to speed on your progress and can better help you.

APPLY FOR TNS: EMAIL TN MANAGERS


You have to be very proactive in sending emails to TN Managers. Some will not respond due to the fact that they might be receiving 10s of applications each day. If you havent heard a response within the 4 days, send another email requesting a response. You will have to keep track of what

AIESEC ESCP 2013

12

TNs youve contacted, which ones have responded, and with what information. We recommend using an excel spreadsheet to organize your tracking. We recommend sending 10 first emails to different TN Managers per week. Generally if an organization is interested in you, they will carry out an interview through Skype to gather more information about your experience, test language skills, and learn more about you. Below is a list of TN Manager Responses and what you should do in response. Response from TN Manager Rejection Request for a Skype Interview Request for more information Request for an Acceptance Note EP Action (Your Action) Nothing you can do Schedule the Interview and carry it out Give the requested information DONT SEND ACCEPTANCE NOTE RIGHT AWAY (See Section on Acceptance Note)

APPLY FOR TNS: SKYPE INTERVIEW


Skype is the online telephone program that AIESEC members use across the globe to communicate and carry out interviews. Youll have to get an account at www.skype.com. Make sure not to make mistakes in time conversion across time zone or else it might leave an organization hanging on the other end waiting for you for an interview and you dont show up which isnt good for you. To see more about time zone conversion, see the section on Matching Manias.

APPLY FOR TNS: QUESTIONS TO ASK TN MANAGER


Must ask questions for to the TN Manager: Does the LC or the company provide accommodations or would I have to find my own? Where would I live? How much does it cost? How far away from my work would I live? How would I get to work? How would I get around in the city? Is there a transportation system? How much does it cost? How many other AIESECers are doing traineeships in your city? How many people are in your LC? How much are living costs? What type of visa will I need? What is the process of getting it? How much does it cost? How long will I be working each day? What days of the week will I work? Will I primarily be working alone or with other people? Are there any safety concerns I should know about? Be sure you are happy with the TN Form details Are you happy with the job hours? (in TN Form) Are you completely happy with the job description? (in TN Form)

APPLY FOR TNS: ACCEPTANCE NOTE (AN)


If you are absolutely sure you are ready to commit to one TN in particular, you are ready to send your Acceptance Note (otherwise known as the work contract). It is your contract and agreement to absolutely participate in the traineeship if the company or organization accepts you,

AIESEC ESCP 2013

13

so it is not something to play around with. If you send an acceptance note and later refuse to do the traineeship, you will be rejected from AIESEC Chapel Hill as an EP and you will not get a refund of the initial participation fee nor the match fee (see signed contract in aieseconline.net). You can only send 1 Acceptance Note (AN) at a time. If you send 2 Acceptance Notes (AN) to different TN Managers at the same time, you will be rejected from AIESEC Chapel Hill as an EP and you will not get a refund. After you send an acceptance note, you must wait 10 days to receive a response from the organization/company regarding your acceptance, BEFORE you can send another acceptance note. If they dont respond within 10 days, the signed Acceptance Note is void. The following table shows example situations and the result in the event that you sent your EP Acceptance Note to the TN. The Match Fee as explained in the contract on aieseconline.net will be charged in the event that you send in an Acceptance Note and are accepted by the organization. We recommend that you talk about the Acceptance Note with your EP Buddy before you do it just to make sure that its in your best interest. Sending EP Acceptance Note Download the Acceptance Note: http://www.myaiesec.net/content/viewfile.do?contentid=10249058 Print Acceptance Note filled out with all the specific information Sign your signature by hand with a pen Scan the Acceptance Note into the computer using a scanner Send the scanned image to the TN Manager

Response from TN Manager

EP Action (Your Action)

Rejects you between 1 & 10 days after Your signed Acceptance Note is void and you can you sent your AN now send other ANs to other TNs Sends the TN Acceptance Note You are obligated to carry out that traineeship. between 1 & 10 days after you sent your AN Verbally accepts you after between 1 & A verbal acceptance does not mean anything until 10 days after you sent your AN you have the TN Acceptance Note signed by the company/ organization. You should send an email requesting the TN Acceptance Note.

Note: A match is not final until you have received the TN Acceptance Note (contract) from the TN with the signature of the company/organization. A verbal acceptance from the TN manager does NOT finalize a match and does NOT mean anything.
3. Question and Answer (Q&A)

AIESEC ESCP 2013

14

WHAT IF A TN MANAGER DOESNT RESPOND WHEN I EMAIL HIM/HER?


There are a number of possibilities. It could be that the TN Manager has received so many applicants for one specific TN that he/she just hasnt had time to respond to everyone. It could be that they have had a busy week at the University; after all they are students as well. We recommend that if the TN Manager hasnt responded within 4 days, go ahead and send another email reminding him/her that you wanted to apply for their TN.

HOW DO I KNOW IF HOUSING OR FOOD IS PROVIDED BY THE TN?


That is something you would have to ask directly to the TN Manager. Some TN Forms will have it written in there, but most will not. To find out all thats provided, you just have to ask the TN Manager.

DOES THE TN ACCEPTANCE NOTE COME FIRST, OR DOES THE EP ACCEPTANCE NOTE COME FIRST?
In short, the answer is that it depends. A TN Acceptance Note would come first only the event of DT that hardly provides anything and is not competitive at all. In this case, they would only send the TN Acceptance Note first if the TN Manager was really interested in matching it as soon as possible and was not getting other applicants. This scenario is very rare and not something you should count on. An EP Acceptance Note is sent first in the large majority of the situations. You should NOT expect that the TN send their TN Acceptance Note before you send your EP Acceptance Note. If there is more than 1 applicant to the TN (which is very common), they are going to select the EP that sends in their EP Acceptance Note over the one that doesnt. For MT and TT TNs, you will NEVER receive the TN Acceptance Note first.

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT BEFORE SENDING IN MY EP ACCEPTANCE NOTE?


Never send in your EP Acceptance Note before getting every single one of your questions answered and talking in person (through Skype) to the TN Manager. If you have not done this, DO NOT send in your EP Acceptance Note. You should NOT expect to have an interview with the organization/company before sending in your EP Acceptance Note. The TN Manager will generally only allow you to interview with the organization/company if you have committed to doing that TN by sending in your EP Acceptance Note.

THE TN MANAGER CONTINUES TO ASK FOR MY EP ACCEPTANCE NOTE EVEN THOUGH I HAVENT HAD AN INTERVIEW WITH THE ORGANIZATION. DO I SEND IT OR NOT?
The TN Manager will always keep asking for your EP Acceptance Note because that is what the need to match their TN. Their primary objective is to match their TN with the most qualified applicant possible. Just because they demand the EP Acceptance Note right from the beginning, doesnt mean that you should send it in immediately. You should always get every single one of your questions answered and have an in-person interview with the TN Manager (by skype) before you send in your EP Acceptance Note. TN Managers will generally not allow you to interview with the company/organization until you have sent in your EP Acceptance Note, so dont expect to be able to do it.
