Due to the ongoing suspension of the J-1 Visa Exchange Visitor program, we are currently unable to consider any applications from candidates without existing work authorization for the US market. We thank you for your understanding and encourage affected applicants to consider re-applying at a later date once the J-1 Visa program has resumed.

The mission of the German American Chamber of Commerce of the Midwest (GACC Midwest) is to promote and assist in the expansion of bilateral trade and investment between Germany and the United States. All internships offer the opportunity to gain work experience in a truly bilingual and bicultural environment, with support from colleagues that can help speed the learning curve of understanding intercultural differences and nuances.
Our Apprenticeship Networks Department supports our member companies and other industry associations, educational institutions and government agencies to cover the demand for skilled workforce in various industry sectors. To this end, we help with the creation of new programs based on the German model of dual vocational training and assist them with the management of existing programs.
