International Trade Council interns have the opportunity to work closely with ITC staff and members on a variety of projects.

Internship assignments vary greatly in terms of content. They may have a country-specific, regional, sectoral, or thematic focus. However, interns are normally involved in some aspect of the design, implementation and evaluation of business–supported programs and projects. Every attempt is made to match the interests of the intern with the needs of the organization.

Interns can be graduate or undergraduate students, unless specified, but should exemplify professionalism, dedication, and excellent work ethic.

Application Deadlines

The International Trade Council accepts applications on a rolling basis for every position listed on our career page. The listing will be available until the hiring manager for the open position has found an applicant to fill the position, or the hiring manager has received more than enough qualified applications and has started the interview stage of the hiring process.

Submission of Applications

The International Trade Council only accepts applications sent electronically through email, using the forms provided. We do not accept direct mailings or in-person paper submissions.

Many of our internships are unpaid, however, in some situations we do have some stipends that we award each semester based on an applicant’s demonstrated financial need. After you have been awarded an internship you must complete the financial aid questions listed on the application in order to be considered for a stipend.
