Grade 11 students have the opportunity to take part in an optional Internship Program that includes workshops to learn the basic skills needed to find a job, including CV and letter writing and interview skills. ZIS alumni can also receive support from the school to find an internship in Switzerland.

Grade 11 students then have the opportunity to apply for an unpaid summer internship, usually for two to six weeks, during the summer — and they can do the workshops even if they do not intend to apply for an internship. If you are interested in offering an internship, please contact Dale Braunschweig at
