TIPS FOR FINDING AN INTERNSHIP IN THE U.S.

An internship is a great way to get an inside glimpse of a company, an industry, and a particular occupation as well as a unique opportunity to get hands-on experience of foreign cultures.

Finding Contact Addresses

  • Call or write to the subsidiaries of North American firms in Germany and to German firms with subsidiaries in North America to receive contact names in America.
  • Visit the 'Akademisches Auslandsamt' at your university
  • Ask professors in your department for personal contacts
  • Contact institutes and non-profit organizations which may have contacts with organizations in the USA.
  • Speak with teachers, family, former employers, coaches, friends, parents of friends - anyone and everyone you can think of - and ask for contacts in your geographic and/or career fields of interest. Meet with (or email or call) these individuals for information about careers and advice about conducting your internship search
