IOM's internship program provides students with the opportunity to learn about its activities, to gain initial work experience, and/or to prepare for a degree dissertation.
The internships are voluntary assignments and can range from 8 weeks to 6 months in duration.
Interns tend to be students approaching the end of their programme or graduates between 19 and 32 years of age (average age is 26).
Interns are given assignments and responsibility commensurate with their experience and they are referred to a supervisor/tutor, who is responsible for mentoring and coaching.
They can be given short assignments either designed within on-going programmes or on an ad-hoc basis.
Interns are not considered to be staff members but Terms of Reference, tasks, duration of assignment and supervisors are clearly determined.
During their assignment, interns attend monthly briefings on the different services of the Organization and visit other Geneva-based International Organizations.
