The Corporate Council on Africa Internship Program
CCA accepts applications for internships throughout the year. Interns conduct research and gather information on African policy issues. They play an integral role in planning for our Trade and Outreach Missions, Meetings Programs, Working Group Meetings, and Doing Business in Africa workshops. They also provide organizational and logistical support.
Interns MUST have:
Background or strong interest in global affairs
Excellent written and verbal communication skills
Advanced computer proficiency; must know Excel
Strong research and analytical skills
High attention to detail
Ability to prioritize and manage multiple tasks
Internships are open to juniors, seniors, and graduate students, as well as recent graduates.
To apply, please send a resume, cover letter, and writing sample to firstname.lastname@example.org
. The cover letter must state dates of availability and the time commitment per week you would be able to devote to CCA. If you are unsure of your schedule, please include a projected date when this information will become available. Additionally, please indicate if there is a particular area of interest within the Council (i.e. Infrastructure, HIV/AIDS and Health, Marketing, Member Services, Agribusiness, etc.).
Applications will be received by the Intern Coordinator and circulated to interested senior staff for consideration. If interest is expressed, applicants will be contacted for an interview. Please no phone calls.
Please note that all internships are unpaid.
