Is this a paid internship?
Each Intern will be offered a monthly stipend to help meet some of their living expenses.
When are internships available?
World Concern will offer internships opportunities for one year starting either in summer or fall.
What is the application process like?
Applicants will start with completing an online application. The HR will set up an interview with those who qualify. Interviews will be conducted by a panel involving a HR rep, the Manager who will supervise the intern, and one other member of staff.
How many hours will they be working?
Candidates will be informed ahead of time the number of expected hours per week.
What does a typical internship look like?
Each Intern will be assigned to a specific department and a specific manager/supervisor. Managers will be expected to provide mentorship to the interns, and general supervision and support in their day to day work. The Intern Coordinator will meet with the Interns once per month for conversations and encouragement on vocation/calling, giftedness, and personal spiritual and leadership growth. The interns will also have a chance to do job shadowing in other departments and where possible within the different ministries within CRISTA.
Will World Concern provide housing?
Unfortunately we do not have the resources to provide our interns with housing or transportation. However, we are available to answer questions and provide suggestions. For instance, interns in the past have chosen to stay with reputable host families in the area or rent an apartment together. World Concern will provide contacts of willing hosts when and if requested.
Does World Concern send interns to other countries?
This will depend on the project/departments the intern is undertaking. In case an international travel was to happen, the intern will be required to undergo all the security background checks and requirements. In some cases, the interns may be required to co-finance an international trip.
What are the program qualifications?
Current undergraduate or graduate students and recent graduates are eligible for the internship program.
What kinds of academic backgrounds are you looking for?
Candidates with backgrounds in all fields of study are welcome to apply. The strongest and most talented applicants will be placed within the organization in a position where they can learn and contribute with their current skill set.
