Fall Session Internship Application

  • 18 Jul 2022
  • 23 Aug 2022


Registration is closed

Interning with the Japan-America Society of Washington DC is a great opportunity to gain skills, experience, and contacts in the world of US-Japan culture exchange and policy. 

During your internship you will have the opportunity to interact with American and Japanese members of the cultural, business, and policy communities, and gain hands-on experience managing the Society’s programs and events! An internship with JASWDC will help you develop skills that will assist in your future career, and will connect you with mentors in the US-Japan community to help guide you on your journey.

Internships with the Society are available to a limited number of college students each term. Internships are unpaid positions. Depending on the university’s internship program, credit is sometimes offered. Interns must pledge to work a minimum of three full days a week for a period of no less than eight weeks.

In all internship applications we look for:

  • Good oral and written communication skills and a motivated attitude
  • Academic concentration in Japanese and/or Asian Studies; Japanese Society and Culture; International Business and Finance; International Affairs; Management; or Business and Public Administration
  • Knowledge of Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, Outlook, and PowerPoint) is required; knowledge of specialized software programs such as CRM systems and Adobe Creative Cloud, etc. is desirable
  • Prior work or volunteer experience, including in managing student activities and events
  • Competent Japanese language skills are desirable but not essential
