Why be a United Nations intern?
The objective of the internship is to give you a first-hand impression of the day-to-day working environment of the United Nations. You will be given a real chance to work with our people. Initially, you will take on the amount of responsibility you can shoulder; the potential for growth, however, is yours to develop.
