Host Company Selection
Our holistic program model centers project-based learning, with projects and major tasks outlined prior to the intern’s arrival in the host country, a supervisor that is fluent in English, and a multitude of program events and advisory support built to enhance learning and professional development. All host companies must:
- Have a project-based internship model with job description for interns
- Have an English speaking supervisor assigned to the intern
- Be within an hour commute of the accommodation
- Workplace must pass our CRCC Asia assessment ensuring quality placement, supervisor, health and safety and company.
- CRCC Asia conducts a health and safety assessment as well as company evaluation during the initial site visit.
Host companies can hire 1+ intern at their company depending on need, sectors and company size. When working with a company to place a student, a job description is created and the students skills, sector interest as well as the company needs are taken into account. Depending on the company, interns may be working in several different departments with different supervisors.
Host Company Evaluations
At the of the internship placement all students complete a holistic evaluation of our program including a detailed examination of the host company placement and supervisor support. This evaluation is taken into account when deciding to renew host company agreements.
CRCC Asia program managers and resident advisors are available on the ground to assist interns in navigating their internships. Program managers conduct formal check ins throughout the program, asking about current projects, and making recommendations for how to maximize the work experience. Resident advisors hold weekly office hours, where interns are invited to stop by and discuss any issues, questions, concerns, or simply to discuss their experience.
Request for Host Company Change
While it is not common sometimes a student is unhappy with their host company due to student’s shifting their sector interests, workplace environment or day to day tasks. CRCC Asia checks-in with all students weekly to ensure that they are doing well and enjoying their host company and internship placement.
In all instances if there is a complaint we work with the intern to make sure they feel empowered and informed to approach their supervisor with their concerns. If no changes are made then CRCC Asia can successfully find a new host company within 72 hours due to the wide breadth of companies we have in place.
