Washington Center › Internships and Recruitment
The OECD Washington Center offers on a regular basis two internships:
Students should be comfortable with the basics of international affairs and/or economic policy, familiar with MS Excel™, and interested in the workings of a trans-national organization. Both positions require exceptional writing ability and excellent communication skills. Other tasks include responding to outside research requests, ad hoc administrative tasks, and database management.
Students with a background in economics, international affairs, political science, communications, or a related discipline are welcome to apply. Students must be a national of an OECD member country*. French language skills are a plus, but not a requirement.
Interns are needed to work 2 or more full days a week, although flexible scheduling is sometimes possible. The OECD observes Federal Holidays. Compensation is not included, however, the OECD Washington Center will work with universities in order to provide credit for student internships when possible. We can assist students in locating suitable housing, although no remuneration is provided.
Applications must be complete in order to be considered. Please submit a brief writing sample (1-2 pages), a cover letter that details your interest in the OECD, and a resume (including GPA and your citizenship) via email to email@example.com.
No phone calls please! Only finalists will be contacted for a phone interview.
Applications are accepted on a rolling basis, and the deadlines are as follows:
Spring 2014 - November 15, 2013
Summer 2014 – April 11, 2014
Fall 2013 - July 18, 2014
