The pandemic has completely upended lives in Vietnam and across the planet – restricting movement, shutting schools and forcing hundreds of millions to work from home. All around us, we see businesses large and small struggling to cope with unprecedented economic hardship and uncertainty. In this environment, AmCham’s work is particularly critical. Our team is grateful to hear that now, more than ever, our members value their association with AmCham. The pandemic has also disrupted extra-curricular activities and career development for young people here. Later this year, AmCham will re-start our internship program with openings for four positions at our office in Hanoi. We are seeking university students or recent graduates who are eager, highly motivated, and interested in learning new skills.
Interns substantially contribute to the lasting success of AmCham. We offer a hands-on experience in an international business environment and our interns enjoy a broad range of experiences while working at AmCham. AmCham maintains the highest standards and we expect the professional and personal conduct of each intern to reflect AmCham’s commitment to excellence.
Our interns must have good communication skills and must be computer literate. Interns are expected to work Monday to Friday for at least three months at AmCham. For a while, we will probably have people work in the office a few days per week and at home a few days per week. As a non-profit organization, AmCham is not able to offer interns the monetary compensation they may be able to receive in the private sector. However, AmCham provides value in many other ways that is essential for someone who aspires to enter the business world. Plus, there is a possibility of turning this into a full-time paid position.
- Undergraduate student or recent graduate
- Friendly and open to new experiences
- Ability to get things done correctly, and on-time
- Willing to attend and help at events
- Knowledge of the internet and web-based tools, plus basic Microsoft Office
We have two intern positions available in the morning (8:15am-12:00pm) and two positions in the afternoon (1:30pm-5:30pm). We will give preference to applicants that have one or more of the following skills: (1) translating letters from English to Vietnamese; (2) graphic design and/or digital marketing; (3) sales/fundraising.
