The E-Intern with Embassy Podgorica will assist the recently opened EducationUSA Center at American Corner Podgorica, in advising Montenegrin students interested in studying in the U.S. The Center has a relatively new adviser and both the adviser and interested students would greatly benefit from having access to virtual consultations with an American peer who has direct experience in applying for and studying at U.S. universities. The duties of the E-Intern would include, but not be limited to: engaging with Montenegrin students and EducationUSA adviser virtually to provide test preparations (TOEFL/SAT and GMAT/GRE) for groups of interested students; on-line presentations/workshops on U.S. higher education, campus and academic life in the U.S.; on-line cohort advising for both undergraduate and graduate students; helping with researching U.S. universities and finding the best fit for interested students depending on their needs; proofreading students’ applications etc.
