Finders’ Fee: we require an initial finders’ fee of 150 Euros to enable us to start looking for internships for you.  This represents your commitment to our role. The fee will be returned to you if we are unable to find you a placement in your given industry area, however if you personally reject three or more placements, despite them being in your industry area of interest then we cannot return the fee of 150 Euros despite not being placed.

Placement Fee: note that most of our partners also require an internship placement fee once an internship has been found. This starts at 490 Euros for the entire placement.

Our placement Process

Once you have submitted your form along with your 150 Euro finders’ fee then the following will take place:

1. ASSESSMENT.  Our team and our associate partners will assess your enquiry, your CV and your cover letter.

2. FURTHER INFORMATION. We will send you further information and costs relating to placements that we believe matches your current criteria. On the exceedingly rare occasion that we cannot find anything suitable, we will ask you if you are prepared to wait for a placement and let you know when we find something.

3. INTERVIEW. You may also be contacted via email to organise a phone/Skype interview with your host company. During the interview, we will provide exact details about the company and the type of training on offer.

4. DECISION TIME. If you and the host company are a good fit and you feel that you are satisfied with the internship on offer, then an agreement will be signed with us and our partners to secure the internship placement. If you or the host company feel that you are not a good fit* for the internship following the interview, then TravelEdventures will continue to try to find a suitable company to place you with. We will attempt this three more times but after that, if you don’t feel that anything is suitable, you will lose your finders’ fee.

*Please note that we cannot arrange multiple interviews at the same time so that you can make a choice from a selection of options. If you are not satisfied with one company for a valid reason, then TravelEdventures will continue to work on placing you with a suitable company.

5. CONFIRMATION. Once the internship is confirmed and the agreement signed, the placement fee is due.

6. TRAVEL ORGANISATION. The next step is to arrange your accommodation, language training, social programme, and flights with you.

7. CERTIFICATE. Following your successful completion of the internship, you will be presented with a certificate of attendance as well as a reference by the host company which details the training received and skills learnt.
