1. Complete you Profile on the Opportunity Portal ( please, include your updated CV!);
2. Just click on the “Apply” button at OP or EXPA;
3. Answer the GEP additional question: “Why are you the best candidate for this Opportunity?”
(Your answer must have the text/argument you would include in your motivation/cover letter specific for this opportunity – yes, the opportunity managers read this);
4. Wait for 1-2 weeks after the deadline of applications to receive a response regarding your application

Imprtant note for EPs in application process

1. No application received through email will be taken into consideration – for transparency and efficiency reasons
2. EPs will not receive any reply until the deadline of applications – unless in special cases.
3. For most opportunities opened with our Premium/Global Partners, the Global Coordinators are responsible of the selection process
4. Applying for a lot of opportunities at once does not increase EP chances of being selected. Please, make sure your EPs only apply for opportunities which they have the right background/skills.

How many rounds of selection my EPs must go through?

  1. Application screening
  2. Interview with Global Coordinator (or AI BD Manager in case that account doesn’t have Global Coordinator, e.g. Apple)
  3. Interview with company representative (Manager of respective function EP applies for)
  4. Personality test (to check if EPs are a good fit with company culture)/optional competency test based on JD

  • Argentina (28 RE) & US (20 RE): Search tool

 

There are 2 Vietnamese GE EPs who have realized in US, working under B1 Visa (tourist visa). Not until they had conversation with TN Taker did they know that they must obtain F visa for this specific internship.

This region is also the most expensive, with all-round tickets can cost up to 2000 USD.

  • Taiwan (26 RE)

Taiwan has confirmed in May, 2017 that they would stop running GE due to imposing government regulation.

India and Indonesia are proven to be potential destination for GE EPs of Vietnam due to their abundant supply, diversity of TN and shorter period of visa application (7 days and 3 days respectively).

Europe

Except for Ukraine, Vietnamese EPs would apply for SCHENGEN visa in order to realize in these countries (est. time of  visa approval is 2-3 weeks). SCHENGEN visa requires applicants to be physically present in the embassy to submit visa application

Serbia is an upper middle income country in Central Europe, which is now the best performing entity in Europe in term of GE RE. However, they don’t have embassy in Vietnam thus EPs must fly to another country in SEA (which country is yet to identify) to submit their application.
