Internship Program for Students

The U.S. Commercial Service at the American Embassy in Tel Aviv offers internship opportunities throughout the year to qualified students, which are currently studying in Israel.

The Commercial Section is charged with helping U.S. firms export their goods and services to Israel. To accomplish this mission, we offer a variety of resources and services to assist U.S. companies entering the following markets.

Interns must be currently enrolled students or students who are between school semesters. All internships are unpaid and we cannot assist with airfare, housing or other expenses. An official letter of recommendation can be provided and many universities will award academic credit for your work.

The purpose of the program is to provide college students with "hands-on" experience working in a commercial section of a U.S. Embassy.
