The French-American Chamber of Commerce has helped prepare thousands of international young professionals and students for a future in the global economy. Each year, our International Career Development Programs (ICDP) department sponsors highly skilled young people for J-1 visas.
ICDP is the ideal mechanism for American and French companies to make their workplaces more diverse and international in scope. ICDP is available only to FACC members and, as a result, participants enjoy supportive, individually tailored service. Exchange visitors gain practical experience, knowledge, linguistic competency, and cross-cultural skills critical to leadership in today's international business community. FACC members have the opportunity to add bright young professionals to their business operations and to strengthen their connections to overseas markets.
