World Affairs Council Internship Opportunities

Explore International Career Opportunities with an Internship

World Affairs Council interns are celebrated for their hard work. In return for that dedication and energy, the interns see the world on a personal basis.  Names in the news become people they've met; overseas news stories evolve into local missions of understanding.
"I’m going to go back to college and everyone’s going to talk about what they did over the summer ... and I’m going to say ‘I met two African kings. I met official delegates from Mexico and Nigeria. I learned international protocol. I learned more about the world. I learned how to interact with people from around the world.” --Evan, Former JWAC student and Council intern
The intern experience is real world – it is extraordinary, educational, and challenging.
  • Learn the “how-to” of basic customer service and event planning.
  • Help host large public programs as well as one-on-one connections.
  • Help plan logistics for national and international officials.
  • Gain key insights about the local North Texas community.
Many of WAC's traditionally unpaid interns have gone on to careers in the public and private sectors and use their Council experience to deal with international and national projects.
 
The Council seeks sharp college or high school–level talented, passionate, energetic individuals to help accomplish their daily missions. The intern program may even translate into college credit – consult your academic advisor.
