No, this is something to be discussed directly with the company offering you a position but according to Department of State Regulations
, an Intern
should receive a minimum stipend
of $1300 per month. However, there are exceptions for scholarships and such, so please contact us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
for us to review your particular case.
You should consider removing the following elements from your resume in order to adapt it to the American style:
- Personal information such as marital status, identification number, your parents’ names, and your date of birth.
- Aggregate grades as many U.S. employers may not understand them.
- You shouldn’t include information such as marital status, date of birth and identification number.
- You may want to draw attention to a topic or qualification, but keep in mind that you shouldn’t write in ALL capital letters - use capital letters only to begin proper nouns such as the companies' names, countries and names.
- Keep your résumé tidy. If you want to use a table to organize information, make sure the lines are invisible. Otherwise, it can be distracting for the HR Managers.
- Don't put references in your CV. You can either send them separately or upon request.
