Internships

Our German majors and minors have interned at the German-American Chamber of Commerce, the Museum of Jewish Heritage, and the Goethe-Institut New York. Some internships have led to part-time and full-time job offers after graduation. For information about current internship opportunities, check out the announcements below. Questions? Please email the Department Chair.

What can an internship do for you? Check out this testimonial from German major Matthew Thompkins, who interned at the German American Chamber of Commerce:

 

Als ich bei der Deutsch-Amerikanischen Handlungskammer war, habe ich die wichtigsten Verbindungen meines Lebens gemacht. Ich hätte nie gedacht, dass dieses Praktikum so hilfreich wäre. Jeden Tag konnte ich mein Deutsch mit anderen Praktikanten benutzen und verbessern. Mein Hauptfach ist Germanistik, also es gefällt mir sehr täglich auf Deutsch zu sprechen, weil ich nicht so oft auf Deutsch mit echten Deutschen geredet habe. Ich hatte so viel Spaß an der Arbeit. Meine Verantwortlichkeiten waren einfach zu lernen, weil ich die beste Lehrerin der Welt (Jessica von Tresckow) hatte. Sie war vor allem die Person die mir alles beigebracht hat, was ich brauchte um die Arbeit voll gut zu machen. Sie hat mir auch die Bedeutung vom „Young Professional“ gezeigt. Jess hat bei der GACC auch angefangen, und jetzt sehe ich, wenn ich mich so wie sie bewährt habe, kann ich auch einen guten Job finden, und die GACC ist ein wunderschöner Ort zu beginnen.
