About Us

In a globalized world economy, we are the foremost organization connecting international students and young professionals to paid internships in major American cities for unique and professional work based experiences. By creating career opportunities for ambitious university students and recent graduates, we promote exchanges that dissolve cultural boundaries and improve understanding across international borders. This process of assimilation and interaction shapes the futures of both interns and host companies alike.

Global Monday brings a breath of fresh air to a stale and largely lethargic industry with high quality J-1 visa sponsorship. Through helping internship candidates align their goals with prominent businesses, we help build a better and brighter global community. Our commitment to pairing motivated young people with the companies best suited to their career advancement is unparalleled. The passion we have for the work is evident in our efficient and effective process, as well as our dedicated support.

Global Monday’s team is devoted to helping our candidates expand their knowledge in their respective fields of study by enhancing their careers with paid J-1 internships in the United States. Additionally, we zealously work toward helping American businesses get the best international interns to join their teams.

We believe our core values of good communication, customer satisfaction, high quality J-1 visa sponsorship, processing speed, support, and efficiency differentiate us from our competitors. Our focus on developing and maintaining a top-notch professional cultural exchange program has created a corporate environment that thrives on delivering world-class service every day.

When you choose to do business with Global Monday, you are partnering with a company who cares. We are continually focused on finding ways to support our clients and improve our programs.
