German American Chamber of Commerce of the Midwest

Greetings from the German American Chamber of Commerce of the Midwest in Chicago! I am reaching out to you to inform you about internship opportunities for American university students and recent graduates at our organization. We offer internships in a range of fields that are excellent opportunities for students to gain practical work experience in a truly bilingual and bicultural environment as well as make valuable connections within the broader Transatlantic Business community. It is also a great way to strengthen the German language within the U.S. and further promote the German culture. There are currently immediate openings in our Consulting Services department that would start respectively in September and October, 2014. Additionally we have an open Accounting and Event internship. Please note that interns receive a monthly stipend and that the minimum duration is six months. For additional information, please visit our website: We would greatly appreciate if you would help us spread the word about these opportunities among your German students. We hope that some graduating seniors might ‘perk up their ears’ when hearing about these opportunities!  Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at any time.

Best regards / Mit freundlichen Grüßen,
