Internships

FIUTS offers unpaid internships for students from all schools interested in learning more about the field of program management, international education, marketing, event planning, and non-profit administration. Internships are similar to volunteer positions, but require more regular hours and a commitment of a minimum of 15 hours a week for one quarter. Internships make excellent additions to any resume, and build skills and experience in the process.

Typical daily tasks include:

  • Welcome each person that enters the FIUTS office and assist students in signing up for events

  • Answer questions from students and community members via email, phone, and in-person

  • Delegate and communicate with a small, collaborate team at the front desk

  • Enter data to help FIUTS evaluate our programs

  • Promote events on social media and by creating posters

  • Develop the weekly E-newsletter 

  • Special projects that are of interest to intern such as planning an event

  • Support all program areas

  • Additional tasks as assigned

Competitive applicants have strong communication skills, a flexible schedule, and a passion for the FIUTS mission.

If approved by an academic counselor, it is possible to earn credit for a FIUTS internship. For more information about receiving academic credit, consult your academic adviser and the FIUTS Executive Director. Internships with academic credit should be focused on a project that directly relates to your field of study or the class for which you will receive credit. Past interns have created projects related to event planning, public relations, non-profit management, technology, and finance.

If you are interested in an internship with FIUTS, contact Michelle Kim, Student Programs Coordinator at michelle@fiuts.org. To apply, send your resume and cover letter at least 1 1/2-2 months before the beginning of the quarter you wish to intern. For example, if you want to begin in October, the deadline is mid-August.
