and the quality of your international experience, you must attend the modules of
cultural preparation for your traineeship. You are subject to being removed from
the Aiesec International Traineeship Program at any point up to being matched
to a traineeship if you are not meeting these requirements.

Matching
You are responsible for searching through AIESEC’s database of international
traineeship opportunities and communicating internationally to find a match for
your preferences. (You will receive training on how best to do this most
effectively). In addition, you will be assigned a personal consultant to monitor and
assist you with this process.
When you find a traineeship that you are interested in, you will be asked to give
your personal consultant a $455 check which only be cashed once the company
has accepted you.

your international traineeship experience, you must fulfill the requirements of
cultural reintegration upon return to the US and complete a post-traineeship
