SACC USA TRAINEE PROGRAM

FOR HOST COMPANIES

Our internship program gives companies in Texas the opportunity to host an intern from Sweden for a period of 6-18 months.

FOR HOST COMPANIES

SACC-USA is a designated J-1 visa sponsor of the U.S. Department of State’s Exchange Visitor Program which promotes educational and cultural exchange in order to increase mutual understanding between the people of the United States and other countries. As a member of SACC Texas, companies have access to the SACC USA trainee program, which provides them with the opportunity to host highly qualified and bilingual Nordic trainees on a J-1 visa. This is a cost-efficient way of accessing Swedish talent and technology, while adding cultural diversity to any operation. For trainees, a traineeship in the U.S is the opportunity of a lifetime.

The SACC-USA Trainee Program and J-1 visa service can be used for everything from a summer internship for a student from Sweden, to a longer training program for someone who has just graduated, to an 18 month visa for a Swedish employee in a rotation program.

Benefits of the SACC USA trainee program

A meeting platform for companies and trainees

SACC USA publishes available trainee positions and advertise them through channels in Sweden. Trainee candidates apply through SACC and are pre-screened.

Knowledge transfer between Sweden and the U.S.

Fostering entrepreneurship and engaging young people in international business

The J-1 visa can be utilized by joint ventures or partnerships between the U.S. and Sweden. Today’s trainees are tomorrow’s business leaders - your current trainee may become your best customer or ambassador in Sweden or wherever else in the world her career will take her.
