Current sophomores and juniors in any major are eligible to apply. INTEX recently earned Walmart's Vendor of the Year Award, and, thus, this fellowship offers students a unique opportunity to work at and study a major player in the global marketplace. After a week of training, fellows will primarily work at the INTEX call center responding to in-bound customer service calls on the night shift during a 6-day work week; will help informally train other interns (specifically Chinese university students majoring in English) on American English and culture; and may be assigned to departments to work on pre-designated projects to enhance their learning about international business. Fellows will stay in the INTEX dormitory (single rooms with private baths; meals and laundry services provided) and will receive a stipend to cover travel expenses to and from Xiamen, visa application and international insurance fees, and other expenses.
The application will be due the second Friday in March.
