Each term, IBC looks for two to three bright, self-motivated students from around the country for our internship program. The internship is not rigidly structured, so we are looking for students who are able to work in a flexible environment with minimum supervision and have a clear idea of what they expect to accomplish before coming to Washington.
Intern responsibilities vary, but include attending and reporting on briefings and hearings pertaining to issues including recent economic developments, international trade policy, foreign policy, etc.; assisting counsellors with products involving research and analysis of developments in trade and politics; and tracking and updating Counsellors on recent developments in trade policy, foreign affairs and politics.
IBC internships are unpaid and are intended for the educational benefit of the intern. We will be flexible about in-person and remote work during the spring. Our program is only open to undergraduate students. If you are interested in working with us, send a cover letter, a resume, a transcript, and a short 2-3 page writing sample to Patrick Sheehy and Ethan Knecht by e-mail by Friday, November 12.
