Aren’t you tired of browsing job adverts that require experience? And how are you supposed to GET experience anyway?

We can help

If you are an undergraduate or graduate student in a university in the EU, or in Norway or Switzerland, this is the program for you! We will help you transition smoothly from the academic to the professional world.

What you get:

  • an internship placement in your area of interest: we will find it for you, after consulting you: no need to send 100 applications
  • career development coaching: from cv and cover letter optimisation to advice on your LinkedIn profile, we will coach you on finding and presenting your strengths and pinpointing the value you can bring
  • local orientation and advice, so you never feel lost in an unfamiliar jungle: you will always have a friendly person to call if you want help or advice

Start in pole position

Working with us allows you to benefit from two really cool advantages: a wide network and experience. We’ve been in Brussels for over ten years meeting people, networking, getting to know the EU institutions and companies and NGOs. Because we have been around a while, we know what organisations are looking for when they recruit, what they need, how they think.

Enter the second advantage we have: people like you. Huh? Placing motivated, well-prepared, successful students in internships for years has given us a great reputation. Thanks to the great job your peers have done, you won’t be starting from scratch, you’ll be part of an elite club from day one.

Ready to transition from student to superhero in training?

With an affordable investment

The program fee to make sure you are starting your career with a bang is very affordable and independent of the duration of the internship (1-4 months full time is recommended).

European student internship program fee: 1360 €

For this price you get:

  • guaranteed internship placement in an area of your interest: this comes with a 100% money back guarantee: if we cannot secure an internship for you by your agreed starting date, we will refund 100% of the program fee
  • rolling admission to allow you to respect your academic and personal timing: no deadlines, but limited spaces available!
  • Superhero Training career coaching program: more than a single experience, you will learn a method to show off your skills to their best advantage and confidently define YOUR added value.
  • Local orientation and support.

Upgrade for full logistic support

Apprehensive about making your way on your own in a foreign environment? Cast all worry aside with the

Comfy Cruise Upgrade: 600 €

  • Airport (or station) pickup and transfer to your housing
  • Housing placement and management (single room with shared facilities, homestay available)
  • We’ll secure appropriate housing for you and make sure it’s a safe area and a legitimate contract: you will still need to pay rent to the landlord, 400 – 700 €/ month depending on situation.

Application Process

  1. Fill in the Application form and attach your resume. You will then receive an email with some timeslot proposals to book an interview with our admissions advisor.
  2. In a 30- 40 minute Skype/phone interview, we will ask you about your background experience, goals, and motivations. We will discuss the opportunities available for you in consideration of your skills, experience, and career goals. This is your chance to shine and show us why you would be a good candidate for our program.
  3. Yes, you want to come! Pay the deposit and confirm your spot. The deposit is 100% refundable (only) in case we are not able to secure an internship for you or your visa is refused. We will get started immediately securing a placement and housing for you. The balance of the program fee will be due before the program starts.
  4. Paperwork: send us youruniversity's internship agreement template. We'll ask you to sign our behaviour guidelines and privacy agreement.
  5. Together we will prepare your cv and cover letter and we will secure a great internship placement for you.
  6. If the host office requires a Skype/phone interview we will coach you and help you prepare. Your internship will typically be confirmed prior to your arrival. We recommend that you book your flights once your visa is confirmed.

When to come

Plan to come when you have a minimum of six weeks free for your internship. If at all possible, don't focus on July-August, they are the quietest months. Prepare yourself to work hard and use your time outside the office to network and attnd events.

Give yourself extra time to relax, travel around, see Europe/ Brussels / Belgium. All work and no play is not the European way :-)

Apply early to ensure you have the best chance to prepare and enjoy your experience in Brussels. A minimum of two months before your starting date is recommended.
