AGBU interns are placed at top institutions and start-up companies in New York, Yerevan and London. The Program strives to consider the needs of participants and supervisors, and the Program Coordinators work diligently to establish a compatible placement.
Shortly upon acceptance and enrollment to the Program, AGBU staff will connect with participants by telephone to conduct a detailed interview and gain a comprehensive idea of the interns’ field of interest. The Program Coordinators will then begin to contact supervisors to solicit placement to find the best internship fit for each intern based on individual background, experience, and achievement. This process may take time and continued communication between Program Coordinators and interns. Participants should be readily available via telephone and email throughout this crucial period. Once a potential connection is made with a supervisor, a series of in-person or telephone interviews may follow to ensure a good fit for each intern.
While our staff works diligently to connect participants with internship opportunities, interns are also encouraged to seek their own placements with the guidance of Program Coordinators should they prefer to do so. In such cases, we expect the participant to be in constant communication with the Coordinator to secure placement in the most efficient way..
