Global Internship Programme Product sheet for recruitment Welcome to recruitment for the GIP programme! In this document, you will find three key things to remember when you recruit for GIP.   

The value proposition of the GIP programme. The program conditions and policies. Whom to target for recruitment.

Based on these, you can also see “Dos” and “Don’ts” of GIP recruitment.

Value Proposition Why it matters: The value proposition of a programme should be the central message you communicate when you recruit students to the programme. For students, the GIP value proposition is: Cross-cultural and professional experience.

Programme conditions and policies Why it matters: The programme conditions and policies tell you what defines a GIP experience. You should not promise a GIP experience that is different than this! GIP conditions: A GIP exchange is an internship hosted by a non-AIESEC organisation in another country or territory. The primary purpose of the intern's job description must be the intern's professional development. A GIP internship is between 6 weeks and 18 months. GIP Policies: The policies for the GIP programme are the Exchange Programme Policies legislated in the Global Compendium and available here.
