SAF International Career Development Programs

SAF International Career Development Programs (ICDP) are designed to provide participants with a competitive edge in the global economy through actual hands-on work experience that helps to bridge the gap between theory and the real world of work.  In 2012-2013, SAF will introduce three distinct types of ICDPs:  (1) Academic Internships; (2) Pre-Professional Work Experiences; and a (3) Summer Program in International Career Development.

Transfer credit will be awarded for SAF Academic Internship Programs and for the Summer Program in International Career Development.  There are limited classroom experiences during the Pre-Professional Work Experience Programs and participants should anticipate working full-time (35-40 hours per week).  In lieu of transcripts, students receive comprehensive evaluations of their work contributions.  The evaluations are written by student’s direct supervisor and become valuable recommendations for future employment.  Based upon employer evaluations, students maybe eligible to receive home university credit.

Complete details on the SAF ICDP opportunities can be found on our Country Office websites (SAF M. China, SAF Taiwan, SAF Japan, SAF Korea).
