Consular Corps College interns assist and support the Director General.
Our interns get involved in all aspects of running the Consular Corps College, developing member services, creating and implementing outreach programs, and above all, planning and executing all aspects of the Annual Symposium in November. During the first semester, interns focus on, and participate in, the Annual Symposium.
During the second semester, focus shifts to the annual membership drive, increasing membership benefits and outreach, and developing the agenda for the next Symposium. The intern also helps with the organization of the Annual Spring Meeting of the Board of Chancellors.
Because they are given so much responsibility, interns must be dedicated and dependable. When meeting with members of the Consular/Diplomatic Corps or officials from various Federal Departments, interns dress professionally and comport themselves accordingly.
The internship is non-paid, however, the Consular Corps College is dedicated to a win-win for Interns and the CCC. Interns learn new business skills and hone those they already possess. They enjoy unique opportunities to meet and work with officials in the Departments of State and Homeland Security, as well as other agencies, such as the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). CCC Interns network with members from across the US and become acquainted with consular affairs, an extremely important, but less well-known area in any foreign ministry. Depending on the agreement with the college or university, the one- and two-semester internships may also be for credit.
Upon completion of their internships, our interns receive a detailed letter of recommendation, detailing the intern’s skills, connections made, and contributions to the organization and its events.
