Internships are an excellent tool for advancing your skills in a field of interest. These positions help young adults find a career path, test their aptitude for certain kinds of work, and further develop their resume or CV. Internships are usually unpaid as the intern is gaining skills and experience. It is critical to find the right match so that the relationship is beneficial to both intern and company. Full time students have the easiest time finding internships because of their age, lack of real life skills, amount of free time, and education.

Internships in Luxembourg

Luxembourg is unique to being host to a large number of international and multinational organizations and agencies. Working for these government and quasi-government agencies is prestigious and there are many opportunities for internship. Luxembourg is also unusual in entitling some coveted internship positions to semi-diplomatic status with tax and social benefits and even a salary. This is sometimes called the International Civil Service.

The European Union has various agencies, directorates, organizations and support functions that employ more around 2,000 people in Luxembourg. These jobs are a great stepping stone to a high-paid career.

    Requirements:
  • Only EU nationals can apply
  • Fluency in at least one or two languages other than your mother tongue (unusual languages like Finnish, Greek, Polish, Hungarian or Danish are especially valued)
