Finding the Right Internship - Getting Started

Finding the right internship is an important and time-consuming step of your internship experience. While on-site internships might prove to be difficult at the moment, you can start researching companies you would consider for an internship as well as update your resume.

Here are some helpful databases for internships in the fields of Media and Communication, for internships in the realm of Transatlantic Relations or for internships in the field of International Exchange.
