Washington Center › Internships and Recruitment
The Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development is a unique forum where the governments of 34 market democracies work together to address the economic, social and governance challenges of the globalizing world economy, as well as to exploit its opportunities. The OECD Center in Washington D.C. aims to increase the impact and influence of the Organization in the international public policy debate by promoting the work of the OECD with targeted public affairs, media and publishing activities in the United States and Canada. We work on a daily basis with government agencies, business and labor groups, civil society, thought leaders, academia and the media to provide trusted analysis and information related to the range of the OECD's work.
OECD Washington Center Interns support the Organization's public outreach efforts to government, civil society and media in the United States and Canada. Please note that you will need to be enrolled as a student (graduate or undergraduate) during your internship.
The internship offers two concentration areas:
Please submit a brief writing sample (1-2 pages), a cover letter that explains your motivation for wanting to intern at the OECD, and a resume (including GPA and your citizenship) via email to email@example.com. Interns must be a citizen of an OECD member country.
Only completed applications will be considered.
Although preference will be given to candidates who are available 25+ hours per week, more flexible scheduling is sometimes possible. Compensation is not provided, however, the OECD Washington Center will work with universities in order to provide credit for student internships when possible. The OECD Washington Center observes US Federal Holidays.
Applications are accepted on a rolling basis, and the deadlines are as follows:
Spring 2015 - November 14, 2014
Summer 2015 – April 17, 2015
Fall 2015 - July 17, 2015
