Less than two weeks remain to apply to 2016 Summer Internships (deadline is Monday, January 18, 2016, 5 pm EST) with the United States Agency for International Development (USAID)! This premier Internship program advances the careers of emerging global health leaders, placing them alongside top experts and helping them take the next professional steps. Interns deliver high-quality technical support for international projects, and have special opportunities for career-building and networking. We encourage people from diverse backgrounds to apply. There are only a few steps to submit an application, and you do NOT need letters of recommendation. See our application checklist for details.

Most of the jobs currently listed are for post-bachelor’s, however, after reviewing all 26 listed I found one that a qualified Senior could apply for: Population & Reproductive Health Communications Intern (Search: INT-P5-027). Another cool service USAID offers, is doing an informational interview with someone in USAID who could review your resume, even if you haven’t applied for one of their internships yet. This is your chance to ask questions about how to prepare yourself for a successful global health career, what qualities health employers are looking for, and any other related issues. Check out how to set up an appointment HERE.
