World Affairs Council Internship

FYI--We have had good feedback from students on this internship--

Hello Career Counselors, Advisors, Professors, and Directors:

The World Affairs Council is starting the application process for summer internships today! The Summer internship quarter will run July – September, but there is some flexibility in those dates given the variance of schedules among schools.

We thought some of your students or advisees may be interested in an internship opportunity with the World Affairs Council. We have quarterly unpaid internships for up to 19 internationally-minded students in the Greater Seattle area.

Our interns commit 12-15 hours per week 10-12 weeks (3 - 6 months) during our office business hours, which are 9am-5pm Monday through Friday. Our interns gain valuable hands-on skills and perform basic office tasks, and are involved in special projects, which vary depending on the department. In the past, special projects have included accompanying high-level international delegates to their meetings in Seattle, writing grants, and co-creating international curriculum for local schools. After an internship is completed, each intern will receive a complementary one year membership plus receive monthly newsletters with job, intern, and volunteer opportunities.

The World Affairs Council in Seattle has six departments which include Administration, Membership and Development, Communications, International Visitor Program, Community Programs, and Global Classroom. Interested applicants should read about our internship programs on our website at

Resumes and cover letters may be submitted to Margaret Tyson at The application deadline for the Summer Quarter internship is April 8, 2011. I have attached our flyer to this email with the information as well.

Thank you!
