Frequently Asked Questions

Q1: What should I do before starting the training? (Check Q3 to create an account.)

  1. First, you should create a training request by filling out the necessary fields. These fields are primarily for insurance/accounting stuff. On the training request creation page, you should be able to see your company listed. Select your company, and select the appropriate starting and ending days. Note that this procedure does not send any emails or requests to the company; this is for us to keep track of the training.
  2. Once you create your training request, navigate to "Training Requests / List" page. You will see all your training requests. When you click on a training request, you will see the necessary information about the training. Click on 'generate acceptance form' to generate your acceptance form. Check if there is anything wrong with the information. If so, send an email to the internship advisor.
  3. You should sign this form, then get it signed and stamped by your company. Upload the form (as PDF) signed by two parties (you, and your company). Your training request will be processed and accepted if there is no problem. Then, our department will sign the form.
  4. Once the request has been accepted, you will see a training record created for your new internship on your home page. After your request has been accepted, the system will send the signed form to the accountant's office (hesap işleri) so that they can start your insurance. You are no longer required to send it yourself. The accountant's office will send you a form (4A işe giriş bildirgesi) stating your insurance has started.

Note: The accountant's office can only process your acceptance form one week before your internship's start date. So, it is best to upload the signed form one week before the internship so that it can be processed and sent to the accountant's office. Consequently, you can get 4A işe giriş bildirgesi only one week before your internship. Also, see Q7.

Note 2: Your "Total Number of Working Days" can't exceed 60 in an internship (Otherwise insurance problems will occur). And keep in mind that, we can't accept more than 45 days.

Note 3: Also, if you have previous internships that are accepted 40 days, you SHOULD NOT find a new internship that exceeds 30 days !!! (+10 days is acceptable at max since you need 60 days to graduate.)

Not: Muhasebeci, kabul formunuzu ancak staj başlangıç tarihinizden bir hafta önce işleme alabilir.
