My Internship

The Company

While I’m in Hungary I will be working for SELTI International (pronounced SHELL-TEE), a language training school for individuals and businesses in the areas of General English, Exam preparation and Business Training. They use native speakers with teacher credentials to teach all their classes. The company was started by AIESEC alumni in 2007. They are currently present in Budapest and Prague and are looking to expand to Qatar and other countries in the Middle East.

The Job

While I’m in Budapest, I will be Chief Operating Officer for SELTI will be responsible for the day to day operations of the school. The first couple of months will be a transition period, learning from the previous individual. Once September hits, I’ll be on my own. I’ll add more details about the job once I get a better feel for it!

June 1, 2011 Update: Currently I’m working on recruiting new teachers for the following school season starting in September. I will also be teaching some English classes for some of the teachers whose contracts are ending. I will be getting my certification to Teach English as a Foreign Language (TEFL).
