InternatIonal Career Development | ICD USA
Каждый год в США приезжают тысячи студентов и молодых специалистов в надежде улучшить свои карьерные шансы, знания языка и познакомиться с американской культурой. К сожалению, эти надежды не всегда полностью оправдываются. Многие участники не довольны услугами своего агентства, будь то рабочее место, не соответствующее квалификации, простые и однообразные задания или полное отсутствие обещанной поддержки при поиске жилья и многое другое. И при этом услуги агентств дешевыми не назовешь, причина этому – длинная цепочка посредников (обычно около 3, иногда и больше!), естественно, что в этом случае, после оплаты услуг, нередко возникает проблема, какая организация, за что несет ответственность.
Идея основать ICD USA возникла после того, как в силу своей профессиональной деятельности, мы столкнулись с проблемами участников и увидели огромный потенциал предлагать гораздо лучший сервис за меньшие деньги!
ICD USA работает без посредников, потому как находясь в США, знает как выглядит американский рынок труда и как наиболее эффективно найти практику/стажировку, квартиру, курсы английского языка и многое другое!

Jordi S.– San Francisco (18 months)
Looking for internship opportunities in the USA is always very hard for people from overseas. The paperwork is overwhelming, it's hard to contact directly to the companies, and they are usually very busy to attend people from abroad. Meeting ICD USA was a relief on my search for an intern/trainee program and made my journey to get the VISA very smooth.
Since the beginning ICD USA provided all the information needed, offered me great internship opportunities and negotiate my stipend getting it even better than expected.
I am happy to recommend ICD USA as the best way to take the next step in your career and be successful in it!

My internship company really great! Especially thanks to my program coordinator! I couldn’t even imaging that training will find me so soon! I tried find internship in many companies in Russia and they tried to find me internship too…they are still trying to find I guess :) Then I faced a ICD web site in the internet…I red all about it, made surfing on forums for feedbacks about this company. So I didn’t meet bad feedbacks and filled up application. My program coordinator call me back really fast, gave me future advices what I need to prepare and how I can quickly make my English better to succeed in interview with companies. On every step I got fully instruction materials and good advices. He helped me in making resume, portfolio, preparing to interview and so on. If where were appearing some problems my program coorditor easily solved them with a rocket speed! :)…
Now I’m in Las Vegas in good company. Have a trainee program on 1 year as a .Net Developer. All promises that were given to me from company become real. The salary I receive now the same as have being promised to me. Company really good and there are a lot of benefits and all treat me great!
So if someone searching for opportunity to gain great experience in USA, I strongly recommend you ICD! The service costs lower than in the other companies that dealing with international trainee programs (I checked this because have applications in several companies!) but service is on high level! I’m really enjoying my internship. Thx ICD!!! ;)

I would like to say big-big thank you to this company and especially to my coordinator in helping me finding the internship. It was not easy but he was extremely helpful and patient, helping me with all the information and sometimes just personal advice. I always had all e-mails in time, the interviews were set up properly, really professional work. I am in San Francisco now, ready to start my internship, really-really happy that I had a chance to work with that company!
Sabine R. – New York (6 months)
Thanks to ICD USA I got the most amazing internship in NYC! Getting international experience is very important in the global economy, but finding an internship abroad proved to be very difficult without the help of an agency.
Finding a good agency proved even more complicated, as they all had different kind of fees and payments which made them difficult to compare and find a decent one.
Fortunately I found out about ICD. ICD USA has a clear fee structure they gave clear information about the process and payments one needs to make before the internship gets started. ICD also provides info on the VISA process and also helps you with finding the right accommodation. I could always count on ICD’s help. I could go through the process without any difficulties. I am so looking forward to my internship in one of the most amazing cities in the US. Thank you ICD.

-If you come to San Francisco, be sure to wear some flowers in your hair-
I take this opportunity to thank ICD USA for supporting me and making me realize my Californian dream.
I moved from Italy to San Francisco about 1 month ago and I've started this amazing experience in this beautiful place.
I really love California so far, happy and smiling people all the time makes your days always positive and brilliant; the city, the food, the multiculturalism makes this city a vibrant and libertine place, where everyone is free and unique.
ICD USA helped me in the whole process, from the interviews with the companies until the last step of booking my flight tickets and I have to say that without them it would have been very hard and not easy to get where I am now.
The company where I'm having my internship is very nice, I've been working seriously and I think this experience can be an excellent opportunity to expand my knowledge and improve my skills on the implementation of different types of projects being involved in this environment full of design and creativity.
I'm sure that every day spent here it will be a great opportunity for my future career both personal and working one.
I really think that Internationality nowadays is the core of great professional experiences and the key to success! Love from the sunny and happy California.

Dmitry G. – Los Angeles area (18 months)
Great work! ICD USA satisfied all of my expectations. That was the right choice to pick this company. Thanks to my program coordinator for help on every stage of internship preparing process.

Polina P. – Los Angeles area (12 months)
I would like to thank you for all the support and guidance I got from ICD USA. The company helped me on the every stage and provided with smooth, quick and efficient process. I tried to find a traineeship on my own before, but it took so much time with so poor results. My lesson was that professionals know better what to do to reach the best results in their area - and I can state that ICD USA is a professional agency.
My personal experience of traineeship is really illuminating and exciting. I’m working in my area of expertise within company I like, with a team of great people.
I can already feel what a huge contribution will these 12 months make to my future career path. And I stay in gorgeous sunny California, enjoying it’s weather and beautiful places around.
Marion L., – Los Angeles, CA (6 Months)
I was planning on going for an internship in USA for a long time. My initial plan was to find an internship on my own. About 3 months I spend on doing research and sending applications. It was very frustrating experience as I got no single reply… So I started looking for an agency.
ICD USA had the most informative site, besides that the best prices also. They helped me to rewrite my resume according to US standards and in two months I had my first interview…
I was continuously challenged with projects and assignments which encompassed a wide range of arenas. I learned more at this internship that I would have at any other due to the amount of responsibility that I was given, coupled with the continuous feedback that I received.
Alex L., – Chicago, IL (12 months)
Getting international experience is very crucial in the global economy, so I had no second thoughts about it.
ICD USA has clear fee structure; they gave all information about the process and payments I needed before I had to make any commitment. Even though I just graduated and had practically no experience, the company gave me the chance to learn and prove myself. Learning with the team has been a rewarding and unforgettable experience…
Ira N. – New York, NY (3 months)
I love New York and I loved my internship! Thank you ICD USA! Before accepting the internship position, I knew that as a hard worker I would be able to adapt and learn new things that were presented to me. However, with little experience and practice in this area, I was obviously concerned about my contribution and positive influence. Looking back on my internship, I realize that I have learned far more than I had expected.
Stephan R. – San Francisco, CA (12 months)
I was confident that I do not need to pay extra money for placement search. After extensive research I found a couple of web sites which give you an access to online internship data bases for about $80 monthly fee. After 6 months membership and zero success and realized I needed a new strategy. I found references to ICD USA in a forum while I was looking for a new plan…
The internship experience enriched my resume in a very positive way; I applied classroom theory to real-life practice on a regular basis. During my internship, I have played a very active role in researching, developing, marketing, and participating in client meetings.
