The APEC Secretariat Internship Framework (ASIF) is open to students who are nationals or permanent residents of APEC member economies. The internship attracts a large number of highly qualified candidates and provides them with the opportunity to work in a leading international organisation.
To be eligible, candidates must posses an undergraduate degree and may be enrolled, or planning to enroll, in a full-time graduate study program. The Secretariat seeks candidates from a variety of academic disciplines, specifically those who have a strong interest in the work of international organisations and, in particular, international affairs and international economics. The ability to work in written and spoken English and computing skills are essential.
Internship work may include research, project management and publicity. Where possible, interns are invited to attend official functions and meetings as observers or staffers.
Currently, the Secretariat accepts two internship placements per year based on the Secretariat’s requirements.
Internship applications for 2013 will open on 2 January 2013. Please note that applications close on 28 February 2013.
