J1 Visa Program

J1 Visa Program

We are pleased to announce that we have partnered with HRC Italy to help promote the opportunity for Italian interns/trainees in the Greater Philadelphia Area.  HRC Italy is part of HRC International, the leading training and career development organization for international interns and has been placing interns since 1995.  The mission of the organization is to provide international students the opportunity to participate in educational and cultural programs in the United States.

The purpose of the J1 Visa program is to increase mutual understanding between the people of the United States and the people of other countries by means of educational and cultural exchanges.  The primary objectives of the program are to enhance the skills and expertise of the trainees/interns in their academic or occupational fields through participation in structured and guided work-based training programs to improve the participants’ knowledge of American techniques, methodologies and technology.

Such training and internship programs are also intended to increase participants’ understanding of American culture and society and to enhance Americans’ knowledge of foreign cultures and skills through an open interchange of ideas between participants and their American associates. What makes HRC Italy unique is the availability to offer your company qualified candidates with a J-1 Visa which streamlines the hiring process.  Candidates are evaluated for language skills, eligibility and experience.  Your company need only do a final interview with the candidate.  Internships are flexible from 1-18 months and are available in virtually any field.

To assist your company in assessing its trainee needs and answer any questions, please contact Jennifer Janssen with HRC Italy.  She is the liaison between the candidates and your organization and can assist in connecting you with the qualified candidate to fit your organization.  She can be contacted directly at 404.330.9843 or jennifer@hrc-italy.com.
Additionally, Italian students who are looking for an opportunity to participate in a J-1 visa may contact Gabriele di Mauro at gabriele@hrc-italy.com or +39 02 394 33663.
