Intern at the Advocacy Center Commercial Liaison Office


Internship Opportunities

The Advocacy Center Commercial Liaison Office-IDB is always looking for energetic and dedicated intern candidates. Our intern program provides college or university seniors and graduate students interested in international trade with "hands-on" experience working in a commercial setting in the nation's capital, Washington DC.

Intern Duties

To the extent possible, the intern's work assignments will provide exposure to a broad range of activities and services. Every attempt will be made to give hands-on experience where appropriate and where permitted. Intern work assignments include:

  • Conducting research and reporting on commercial opportunities for U.S. firms in funding or project procurement and consultancies from the IDB.
  • Learning about the IDB and its countries of operation in order to assist in counseling U.S. firms on financing available for international procurement and investment.
  • Exposure to the IDB and to U.S. firms trading and investing in the Americas.
  • Assisting the Advocacy Center-IDB in implementation of its Work Plan, including its reporting plan and outreach activities.

This internship is unpaid but offers an excellent opportunity to meet and network with U.S. government officials and private sector representatives involved in international trade. We can arrange for you to earn academic credit and offer transportation reimbursements.
