About LGBT Internships
The Global Experiences LGBT Internship Program offers an unparalleled opportunity to gain valuable work experience in a career area that also has considerable resonance and personal meaning to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered students around the globe. For ally friends or those pursuing careers in social work, human rights or progressive public policies, an internship with an LBGT organization can also be a rewarding, life altering experience.
Global Experiences offers LGBT international internships in Dublin, London, Paris and Sydney every season of the year. We also offer domestic internship opportunities in New York City and Washington, D.C. While these internships are a natural fit for those with graduate school interest in Women’s, Gender and Sexuality Studies, it can also be a transformative experience for those LGBT students with more general interest in communications & marketing, website design/hosting, public relations, radio/TV, event planning, non-profit management or political campaign organization.
At LGBT resource centers, students can assist with peer education programs, youth counseling, coordinating the activities of volunteers or leading an online discussion group. At advocacy organizations, interns might monitor major news outlets and prepare daily clips for staff, assist in the drafting of press releases and pitch LGBT news/events to media outlets and work to generate coverage. Other opportunities might also be crafted to an individual intern’s talents and an organization’s specific needs
We will work with each candidate to find the best match relative to your academic background, career objectives, skill sets and even behavior profile. We also take time to help you prepare and fine tune your resume and cover letter, coach you on interviewing techniques, and provide further professional development throughout the program. To our knowledge, we are the only internship provider that considers all aspects of a potential placement, both personally and professionally.
