Recruiting a J-1 Intern

If you're looking for interns or professional trainees, we can find you the right match!

The French-American Chamber of Commerce-Atlanta offers recruitment services for US companies looking to expand their internship opportunities for young professionals through the J-1 Visa program administered in cooperation with the United States Information Agency (USIA).

The FACC is authorized by the USIA to sponsor eligible interns and trainees on a J-1 visa by issuing the Certificate of Eligibility, form DS-2019. This document allows French citizens or permanent residents of France to request a J-1 visa authorization through the US Embassy in Paris. The program allows participants to come to the United States for up to 12 months as interns or for up to 18 months as trainees for full-time, paid exchange programs at eligible FACC member companies.
