Dear Sir/Madam:

Greetings from AIESEC!
Present in over 800 universities in 94 countries, AIESEC is the international platform for
young people to discover and develop their potential so as to have a positive impact in
society. To date, we run more than 350 conferences, provide 5,000 leadership positions to
our members, and provide young individuals access to almost 4,000 work-abroad
opportunities of durations lasting until 18 months each year.

The work-abroad stage of the AIESEC Experience, also called the International
Traineeship Exchange Program (ITEP), encourage the youth to be globally oriented
and to go beyond their comfort zones. AIESEC in the Philippines has been sending out
Filipino Trainees to work in ay of the other 91 AIESEC member countries, and equivalently,
has been receiving foreign trainees to work in our country.

This November, we are once again holding the International Traineeship Recruitment
period. We aim to look for highly qualified and motivated individuals who are eager to
learn and experience different cultures, and are competent and open-minded enough to
work alongside people of different cultural backgrounds. The work categories are classified
into four: Management Traineeship, Development Traineeship, Technical Traineeship, and
Education Traineeship.

We would like to offer you this unique experience and are hereby inviting you to take part
of this opportunity to augment your personal and professional development, by applying to
be an AIESEC International Trainee. We hope that we have solicited your interest in the
AIESEC Exchange Program. Thank you very much and God bless.
