Finders & Placement Fees

Finders Fee- We require an initial finders fee of 150 euros for us to go ahead with looking for internships for you so we know you are serious about our help. This 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 you will not be returned the finders 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 procedure

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

1. ASSESSMENT. We and our associate partners will assess your enquiry, CV and Cover letter

2. FURTHER INFORMATION  We will send you further information and any costs on placements we see matching your criteria currently. On the very rare occasion that we cannot find anything, then we will ask you if you are prepared to wait for a placement and we can let you know when we find something.

3. INTERVIEW  You may also be contacted via email in order to organise a phone/Skype interview with your host company. During this interview exact details about the company and the type of training offered will be provided.

4. DECISION TIME If you and the host company are a good fit and 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 after the interview then TravelEdventures will continue to try to find a suitable company to place you in. We will attempt 3 more for you and after this time you will loose your finders fee.

*Please note that we cannot arrange multiple interviews at the same time so that you can choose. If you are not satisfied with one company for a valid reason then Traveledventures will continue to work on placing you into a suitable company.

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

6. TRAVEL ORGANISATION  We are then happy to arrange accommodation, language training/social program & flights with you.

7. CERTIFICATE   After you complete your Internship successfully , 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 while on internship
