SACC Texas offers two programs for our members.
Through SACC-USA, SACC-Texas is pleased to offer the SACC-USA Trainee Program.
The SACC-USA Trainee Program provides U.S. companies with highly qualified trainees from Sweden. Consider this a cost-efficient way of accessing Swedish talent and technology while adding some cultural diversity to your office. For the trainees, a training program in the U.S. is a great opportunity to work internationally and gain valuable professional experience.
SACC-USA is a designated J-1 visa sponsor of the U.S. Department of State’s Exchange Visitor Program which promotes educational and cultural exchange in order to increase mutual understanding between the people of the United States and other countries. Use of the Exchange Visitor Program for regular employment or other work purposes is strictly prohibited.
The SACC-USA Trainee Program and J-1 visa service can be used for everything from a summer internship for a student from Sweden to a longer training program for someone who has just graduated to an 18-month visa for a Swedish employee in a rotation program.

Would you like to coach someone you can share your knowledge with? Are you looking to be coached by someone to exchange your ideas? Do you value networking? Are you interested in participating in a program that may benefit your personal growth and development, provide career guidance and goal achievement?
Through the Mentor Program, SACC-Texas links ambitious professionals with knowledgeable professionals and entrepreneurs. Our mission is to promote a mutual exchange of ideas and experience between mentors and mentees.
The goal is to create valuable synergies between mentors and mentees, who can benefit from each other’s experiences. Mentees get a chance to learn from professionals who have extensive experience in their particular field of expertise. A mentor can offer assistance in the construction of a professional Resume and can teach the mentee how to cope with challenges in the work place, how to make the most out of their careers, as well as realizing business ideas and goals. The relationship benefits both parties in areas such as personal growth, career development, goal achievement and other fields of interest agreed upon by the mentor and mentee. This is a great opportunity to receive career mentorship wherever you are in your career.
The program provides participants with networking opportunities, personal support, business training and career guidance to foster the relations between members. Participants must be members of SACC-Texas.
The next SACC-Texas Mentor Program will be in Spring 2018 and run from end of February to June.
