Stage New York City ervaringen

"My dream has become a reality! I'm conducting my internship in downtown New York City. I have great colleagues and the work I have to do is very interesting. It matches with my University’s background, which allows me to learn even more. I’m staying in a great student hotel on ‘The Upper West Side’ in New York. I have met many great people during my internship and quite a few parties!”"


Lisa - Amsterdam Fashion Insitute
J-1 Visa Support

"I had to organise my visa within 8 weeks. I heard from many other people it would take much longer than that. After comparing agencies, IO USA came out as the number one for me. After my application was made, IO USA contacted me very soon. And this continued during my application. I could always ask them anything and receive an answer within a few days and sometimes within a few hours, or minutes! They helped me a lot and I want to thank them for their great service!"


Phil - Rotterdam University
Business Administration Internship

"the service from IO USA was great and helped me a lot. I started late with my application but this was not a problem for IO USA as they contacted companies right away. I now have an inter nship at a M&A Advisor in NYC! Also, their response to my emails was always top notch and fast! I could ask anything and I was assured I was in good hands."
