The Dialogue is committed to the professional development of the young leaders from around the world. Our internship program has provided students and recent graduates with the training and experience they need to kick-start their careers in the public and private sectors. Past interns have gone on to pursue jobs with a wide variety of international organizations, government bodies, think tanks, consulting firms, and private corporations. Interns have expansive duties and play a vital role in the organization’s daily function. In turn, they receive unique exposure to the Washington policy community and unprecedented access to influential leaders from across the Americas.

To apply, submit a cover letter, resume, brief writing sample (~2 pages), and letter of recommendation to firstname.lastname@example.org. The application process for Summer 2016 internships is now closed.
Applicants should specify the program with which they would like to work in their cover letter and on the subject line of their e-mail. Although the Dialogue does review each resume, the volume of applications we receive makes it impossible for us to communicate directly with all applicants. Internships are unpaid.

The Dialogue is an equal opportunity employer and considers applicants for all positions without regard to race, color, religion, creed, gender, national origin, age, disability, marital or veteran status, sexual orientation, or any other legally protected status. Internships are educational opportunities meant to benefit the intern. Interns work under staff supervision and offers for internships are not guarantees or suggestions of employment after an internship term is over.
