Spring/Summer/Fall Semesters 

The U.S. Commercial Service has an active internship program throughout the year, and we welcome applications from suitable candidates to work alongside our staff at the U.S. Embassy in London. 
Due to the security clearance process, there is a 90-day lead time for processing clearances. Please be sure to apply well in advance of the date you wish to start your internship. 

The U.S. Commercial Service is the export development and inward investment arm of the United States government and our office in the U.S. Embassy London is one of the most active in the world. Our work pursues two key objectives: 
- To assist U.S. companies with their efforts to enter the UK market through representation, direct sales, licensing agreements, or joint ventures. 
- To assist UK companies in forming business relationships with U.S. companies by representing U.S. products, importing goods, or through joint venture and licensing arrangements. 

To support these objectives, our office counsels U.S. companies, analyzes information on the UK Market, facilitates contacts with UK businesses, promotes U.S. products in the UK and European marketplace and advocates U.S. business interests. 

The intern's work assignments will provide exposure to our full range of activities and services. Every attempt is made to give hands-on experience where appropriate. It must be stressed, however, that the immediate requirements of the mission program must take precedence over other considerations. 

Intern assignments may include: 
- Collecting and analyzing information for use in market research reports 
- Responding to inquiries from U.S. companies 
- Assisting our staff in the preparation of trade events and trade missions, which includes working on marketing campaigns, information gathering and verification, event management and research 
- Assisting with Gold Key clients and visits. Our Gold Key service helps U.S. companies to find partners and distributors in the UK 
- Assisting with promoting and implementing the SelectUSA program, U.S. federal initiative to promote, facilitate, and encourage business investment in the United States 
- General administrative duties 

We prefer interns with international business, business administration or marketing majors; however, we will consider all appropriate students regardless of their major. 
Please note that interns do not receive any compensation, and no housing or other financial assistance is available.
