After an impressive and popular first recruitment window that ended in November, CCIP is gearing up to begin another round of recruitment on January 1 for its summer 2017 program.

“After the large success of our first round of recruitment, more students than ever are applying to CCIP, so we predict a large amount of interest from students during the second window,” said Elizabeth Kay, the principal of FUSIA Communications, the organization that runs CCIP. “We keep hearing of more and more interest all the time.”

After the busy exam period and festive holiday season, students are undoubtedly exhausted and looking forward to their breaks from school. Such occasions are excellent opportunities for students to think about their summer plans and take time to prepare themselves for studying abroad and building their professional skills in a real-world setting.

As part of the second recruitment window, CCIP will be conducting Info Sessions and interviews at all of it partner universities, starting in Macau on January 11 before moving to Singapore later that week and Hong Kong starting on January 19.

“We encourage all interested students to attend an Info Session and schedule an interview,” Kay said. “We look forward to meeting as many students as possible and answering all their questions about the upcoming program.”

CCIP’s 2017 program will take place during the summer in New York City and will offer approximately 70 internships in a variety of industries from creative firms and government offices to ad agencies and law firms.

The Cross Cultural Internship Program (CCIP) is a cultural exchange internship program that takes place in New York City every year. It is dedicated to fostering mutually beneficial East-West cultural exchange, targeting exchange visitors from Asia and the Pacific region.

CCIP provides exchange visitors and host organizations the opportunity to exchange insights, ideas, and experiences. Through the program, participants acquire practical knowledge and cultural experiences, and host organizations connect with the international community and stay abreast of trends in the global marketplace.

CCIP is organized by FUSIA Communications, one of the approximately 98 J-1 intern designated visa sponsors in the nation. FUSIA is responsible for the selection of interns as well as supporting and monitoring the¬m during the program.

CCIP is a structured, full-placement internship program. Since 2008, CCIP has provided internship opportunities to over 850 exchange visitors. In 2015, 71 students were selected out of 1050 applicants. They were matched to 20-plus host organizations of diverse disciplines including government district offices, law firms, publishing houses, media firms, advertising agencies, real estate agencies, and more.
