Fulbright English Teaching Assistantships to Malaysia
Language - No Malay language skills are required. ETAs will be given training in basic Bahasa Melayu during the orientation in Malaysia. In line with the program’s objectives, English Teaching Assistants (ETAs) are expected to speak only English in their assigned schools.
Grant period - 10 months, beginning with a mandatory orientation in January 2013. In addition, all grantees are required to attend a Pre-departure Orientation in Washington DC in mid-July 2012 as a condition of their grants.
Candidate profile - Applicants should be mature and articulate graduating seniors, recent graduates, or Master’s students. Candidates should be unmarried and without dependents. Candidates must be native English-speakers. No previous teaching experience is required. Candidates must be adaptable, flexible, independent, and enjoy working with children.
Nature of assignment - ETAs will be assigned to secondary schools in the states of Terengganu, Pahang, and Johor, primarily in small towns and rural areas. Approximately 25 hours per week will be spent in the classroom assisting English teachers and in participating in or leading school-related activities. ETAs will teach conversational English to high school students aged 12 to 17.
Independent study - This program is essentially for teaching. Facilities and resources for independent study and research will be very limited. ETAs will be free to pursue their own interests after school and on weekends, but should not count on access to necessary research facilities.
Housing - Housing arrangements will be made for grantees with the assistance of the Fulbright Commission and the host state government. Grantees should expect simple Malaysian accommodation which may not be of U.S. standards. Most ETAs will be housed in staff quarters of residential (boarding) schools.
British Internship Opportunities
The US-UK Fulbright Commission in London is seeking applicants for our internship programme for 2010-11. We would like to request your help in making study abroad students and graduates from your institution aware of these opportunities, by forwarding them our email below.
For many years, Fulbright UK's internship programme has proved to be a great fit for American study abroad students interested in gaining work experience part-time during their studies. Interns at the Commission join a small, dynamic staff, working closely alongside our staff to promote and provide advice on study in the US to some 5,000+ British students each year. Internships are unpaid and may be on a part-time basis around students’ class schedules. Note: Interns must be travelling on a Student Visa (applied for prior to entry in the UK, as opposed to the Student Visitor Visa obtained at the border).
We also have the ability to host recent graduates (within six months of graduation) and current graduate students in fields such as higher education administration or international education, as volunteers through the BUNAC Intern in Britain Programme: http://www.bunac.org/usa/interninbritain/
To apply, students should email a CV and cover letter to email@example.com by 10 September.

The Ernst & Young Center for Business KnowledgeR (CBK) and its network of local centers enable global, firm wide knowledge sharing practices to meet our client needs and support our people.

Interns usually work in small teams and so far, this has been one of the most popular internships for those with an interest in tax, consultation, audit and law.
There are a number of different divisions you might work in depending on your wishes and the Prague offices needs. Whether you join Advisory, Assurance, Tax, or Transaction Advisory Services, you'll collaborate with a diverse group of talented individuals ready to share their knowledge and experience to help you succeed. This collaborative approach extends to the way we work with clients: you'll learn how we forge successful relationships with businesses and other types of organization to help them achieve their potential.
The past interns have all loved this position. You have a huge variety of roles and client service opportunities to choose from. And while that's exciting, it can also be challenging.
