Frequently Asked Questions
How long does the internship last?
The Blind Applying internships are paid internships of 3 months minimum. Internships usually start late May - June. Exact starting date and duration are decided between the candidate and the employer.
How is the selection made?
The candidates are shortlisted based on the qualifications (field, languages, previous experience), as needed for each internship. A candidate's extra-curricular interests and other activities are also taken into account, so that they are matched with opportunities interesting for them. Out of the shortlisted candidates, the employers choose which students to interview and ultimately decide on their Blind Applying champion.
Can recent graduates take part?
Some employers require the intern to be an enrolled student for legal reasons. If a company can employ recent graduates for the internship, we are more than happy to match them with suitable candidates.
Are students obliged to accept an internship offer?
Students are not obliged to accept any offer or interview. We always look to match students with suitable companies and opportunities, but it's up to the student to decide.
What other opportunities are there besides the Blind Applying internships?
All applicants have the opportunity to receive personalized opportunities and news from the partaking employers, based on their profiles. It is our goal to let applicants know of as many new, global opportunities the employers are offering as possible.
