Many students self-arrange their internship

Generally, many foreign interns, students and trainees in the USA are not going through an organization like Interswop. In this case they organized their stay in the US on their own and only need to obtain the correspondent visa to enter the USA. Therefore, a so-called DS-2019 form is required to obtain the J1 visa. However, this form cannot be issued without any organization (visa sponsor). Thus, Interswop helps those persons to get the DS-2019 form and assists the J1 visa application.

Very hard to get a paid internship in the US

It is not easy to get an internship in the United States. And even harder to get a paid internship or training. To being with, our full placement service makes it very easy to undergo an internship or training in the US. After a pre assessment and evaluation of the possibilities of each candidate, we place participants into suitable internships. Also in trainings in most career fields. Generally, short-term internships from 3-6 months are mostly unpaid. On the other hand, long-term internships from 6-12 months and trainings from 6-18 months are paid.

Although staff members of Interswop get trained regularly upon the US laws and visa requirements, we can offer our DS-2019 form service at very affordable fees. Because some of the costs could be covered by banner advertisement on this website and commissions from our partners. In addition, we meet our US partners every year to guarantee our customers the best assistance possible. Interswop is a private company and does not receive any federal financial support. Therefore it is impossible to offer our services free of charge.
