1. Did the Global Talent program change? If yes, how?

Yes! There are a few improvements that we have done do our Global Talent program:

Before July 2020, Global Talent opportunities were within the 6 to 12 months as duration.

After July 2020, Global Talent provides you with a broader variety of options with opportunity durations starting from 6 weeks. Moreover, all of the new Global Talent opportunities offer you an improved set of benefits:

All opportunities longer than three months will provide you with a salary, while shorter opportunities (between 6 and 12 weeks long) will either offer you a salary or cover the expenses of your accommodation during your experience.
