What does my employer in America have to do?
Your employer in America must complete a Training Plan which details exactly what you will be doing in America and justify the length of your internship.
When reading the Training Plan, we must have a clear understanding of the goals of the training and how you will meet those goals. We need to have detailed descriptions of the kinds of activities and projects you will be involved in. This is best expressed in a weekly or monthly breakdown of your activities.
BUNAC evaluates each application individually and on its own merits. It is not possible to tell you whether your application will be accepted until we receive the complete application and have sufficient time to review it.
When BUNAC receives an application we are looking, amongst other things, to see the following:
That you have a connection with the field in which you are intending to train
The internship relates to your current work experience or qualifications
There is a reason to go to America to undertake this training
The training is going to be beneficial to your future career when you return home
That it is a training position and not a job
That you will be receiving on going, continuous supervised training for your entire stay in the USA
That the training is of a professional level and will involve very little unskilled activities.
BUNAC reserves the right to refuse any application if it is felt that the application does not meet the criteria of Internship USA.
