With over 63 years of experience in international education, CIEE is the largest and longest running sponsor of exchange programs in the U.S. We are committed to hiring staff that support our educational mission to help people gain understanding, acquire knowledge, and develop skills for living in a globally interdependent and culturally diverse world.
