Placements & Internships

Placements

Placements are a special feature of the Russian education system, and a compulsory part of the ICEF curriculum. They allow students to take theoretical knowledge and apply it real-world tasks, and give them experience of working life.

The Careers Centre provides students with information about available placements both in Russia and abroad, holds seminars about how to find vacancies, helps with application and interview preparation, and offers advice on an individual basis (find out more in the Employment section).

Students apply themselves to vacant positions and go through the selection process according to the specifics company’s procedure – usually they involve submitting a CV and having interviews at the firm. Some students also find placement positions abroad.

Internships and Job Opportunities

ICEF regularly receives announcements of new internship and job opportunities from employers. Many of them are not publically advertised, and are open only to the student body of a select group of institutions. We also constantly monitor internship and job opportunities that are posted on job-seeking websites and social networks, and keep our students up-to-date with the most interesting opportunities.

Students can look through current listings of internship and job opportunities – and submit applications – on the ICEF Intranet.
