7 AND A HALF REASONS WHY TO CHOOSE US FOR AN INTERNSHIP

1. You will have a meaningful job

Does doing meaningful work always makes you feel good? In our team you will participate in projects from a wide range of interesting areas. We hold debates, conferences, round tables, and work breakfasts. It's definitely not boring. On the contrary! We focus on topical issues from international relations, economics to digitalization.

2. You will not prepare coffee for us

You'd wonder how many people are disappointed with their internship. According to the latest surveys, up to 67% of students would like to do more actual work. Every second person in the survey said that while the internship had brought them a "certificate", it did not give them a valuable experience. You don't have to worry about us. If you don't want to just prepare coffee and if you are not afraid of responsibility, the internship at our institute is the right choice for you. You will be working on specific projects and you will be responsible for your own work on them.

3. We are located in the most beautiful part of Prague

We are located in the Old Town of Prague which makes our office easily accessible since it is located at the Narodni Trida stop. PS: In the summer it's extremely close to Prague shore : - )

4. We are a really great team

Our team works as one big family that always pulls together. We always go to work with a smile. We are a bunch of people you will be happy to see after work. We don't have dress code and within a few days most of us will be happy to talk with you in an informal way. We have an informal culture and we are open to new ideas. Whenever you need help or advice, you can ask any of us.

5. A various and creative work awaits you

Honestly, who enjoys stereotypical work? Nobody! So, if you're not a robot, you don't have to worry about doing the same things around here. If you know what you want, if you want to do something specific, we'll be happy to help you find what you're looking for.

6. Freedom

Do you like when you can do things your own way and nobody says to you how exactly to do the tasks? Relative freedom in working hours and freedom from unnecessary bureaucracy are very important for us. We don't care if you are an early bird or a night owl. You don't have to get up before eight! For us it is more important if you give in a good job than if you sit from nine to five on a chair.

7. A great experience that will shine in your CV

You don't have to be a multinational recruiter to know that most companies prefer graduates with work experience. In addition, we are a nonprofit organization and employers greatly appreciate people who have no problem working on a volunteer basis to gain valuable experience.

7 1/2 Are you our star? Stay shining with us!

Do you feel like a fish in the water at our institute? Great. Let's discuss together what to do next. It's not a guarantee, but if you work with us and the interest is mutual, it is possible to become part of our full-time team.
