Holland in the Valley talent committee: Internships in the Valley

Hire your next outstanding intern through the Internship in the Valley platform, an initiative supported by Holland in the Valley and under auspices of the Association of Universities in the Netherlands. Submit your job descriptions, and we connect you with a short list of qualified Dutch students. During the hiring process, the platform is here to connect you and the student with the right institutions for a smooth ride.

Are you a student and interested in participating? 

Contact your internship coordinator at your university to express interest to be considered.

What is the background of the students?

Students will have been recommended by professors and advisers at their university as a top candidate to be considered for a coveted internship in the Bay Area. Those presented will be based on the skills and background listed in your internship profile. All of the students will be (master) students in the last phase of their studies.

How does my company qualify for the platform?

You can join our platform if your company has been in business in the US for at least four years and employs at least 10 people.

How long can the student work for our company?

Internships are carried out on a J-1 visa, so they can last three to 12 months. If you need assistance with the visa process, The Netherland-America Foundation will be able to help. Please email SFN-EA@minbuza.nl for information.

How much do we need to pay the intern?

We advise companies to pay interns to ensure a successful internship, taking into consideration visa costs, travel and living expenses.

Do you charge a fee for the program?

No, the Internships in the Valley platform is a nonprofit initiative set up by the Consulate General of the Netherlands through Holland in the Valley to connect US companies with Dutch talent.
