Applicants are welcome to apply for the OECD Internship Program. The Internship program aims to attract highly qualified and motivated students from various backgrounds into the Organization to work on initiatives related to the Secretary-Strategic General’s Orientations and to assist the Organization’s business activities. Its major purpose is to provide selected applicants with the chance to strengthen their analytical and technical abilities in an international environment.

The Internship Program is offered on an ongoing basis and is open to students who are enrolled in a fully accredited degree program (Bachelor’s, Master, or PhD) for the duration of their internship. Until further notice, selected interns are onboarded remotely and in a hybrid format. Internship start dates will be set based on your dates of availability and the OECD hiring team’s schedules. Therefore, applicants must not forget to specify the date and duration of their availability in the application form.
