Intern with GlobalJax
GlobalJax invites three college students to intern each academic semester: fall, spring, or summer. These are open to college students of all majors, including: International Business, International Relations, Marketing, Business Administration, English, and Communications. Both U.S. and non-U.S. citizens are welcome to apply. These are unpaid internship opportunities.
Like most non-profit organizations, GlobalJax operates with few full time staff. Therefore, interns enjoy working on a range of tasks – short- and long-term projects – that include programming for emerging world leader visits, outreach to local professionals, advocacy to Capitol Hill and Tallahassee, publications, and fundraising depending on their backgrounds, skills, and interests. Interns can expect to attend special educational and cultural events. They report to the Executive Director.
The qualifications include: Strong writing, communication, and organizational skills, experience with MS Office (Access, Word, & Excel) and good typing 60 wpm+. Bring your passion for citizen diplomacy, public diplomacy, international education, and exchange. You must be able work efficiently under minimal supervision; prioritize and meet deadlines. Event planning background/interest is a plus. Flexibility and willingness to work beyond the parameters of a job description, maturity and a sense of humor will assure that you experience a phenomenal internship!
To apply for an internship, e-mail a cover letter detailing your interest in citizen diplomacy and internship objectives, a resume, and a 2-4 page-writing sample (only if applying for communications position). When submitting by e-mail, please put all information into one MS Word document and send to Andrea Hartley at email@example.com.
"While my major deals primarily with the culture, politics and general history of other countries this job brought all that theory into practice. I know I have accomplished what I came here to do – to become an integral member of an organization that brings the world both professionally and culturally together." – Ryan Mcdonagh, Intern Summer 2009
