    New York, NY

    Nope, no salary and no reimbursement for expenses :/ They now started paying some interns at UNICEF in NYC, but only like 20 poistions a year maximum (rest is still unpiad), plus they receive 1500 dollars which is ridiculous, you cannot survive more than 2 weeks with that amount of money in Manhattan ahaha

    NATO Internship

    Just got rejected for the internship at the Counter-Terrorism Division! It seems at least odd to me, after I interned at the UN Counter-Terrorism Centre in NYC and currently dealing with the matter in Kosovo First and last time I apply to NATO internships ahaha!! Really cannot make sense of their selection process! All the bets to the rest of the candidates

    I see my application to NATO Office of Resource - Capability Implementation Branch has been last updated 6 August 2018, they're still shortlisting for a lot of positions, they're super late this year!!

    Same here! Even though the interview went well, they didn't choose me in the end for PASP.

    NATO Internship

    I asked to the people who interviewed me, and they told me working environment and daily life are similar to an international organization like the UN

    NATO Internship

    I think by the end of July (next week) we should know for all positions. At least I hope so! It's taking too long. I expect to hear from PASP by the end of this week, though it may take longer than that. For instance, for my last place here at OSCE it took 2 weeks for them to decide after the interviews

    They didn’t tell me and I forgot to ask😭😭 how stupid ahaha but this week I think I’ll know, they’re pretty late with the selection process so I think they’ll move quickly now!

    The clearance is fundamental, I don’t think you can start the internship at NATO without it Many people told me they went crazy to get it in time. I’m also worried about the same thing, in case I get the internship, also because I live abroad now and I’d have to harass embassies and so on I guess!

    NATO Internship

    Hello @VTheo! The interview went pretty well I guess, there was just one guy interviewing me and he was very chill and fun. He had a set of 10 questions for me: 1) Introduce yourself and your academic and professional background 2) Why did you apply to NATO and why are you the best candidate for this internship? 3) Are you a team player? Give me a practical example 4) Do you prefer to plan your work or work under pressure? Give me examples 5) What is one of your biggest achievements during your studies or your professional career? 6) Tell me about one problem you had during studies or work, and how you solved it 7) Have you ever worked in, or on, Post-Soviet countries? 8) Do you have any experience in project management and monitoring and evaluation? 9) Which skills do you birng to NATO and which skills do you want to learn from this internship? 10) What do you know in general about NATO and about our division? As I said, nothing too technical or too scary. The guy was fun and the athmosphere relaxed. I hope I'll get it, but even in case I won't, I'll remember it as a positive interview experience. Cheers, Isma

    NATO Internship

    I still don't know, interview will be on Wednesday. I'm reading a lot about NATO in general, plus the PASP division who shortlisted me deals with programs for the education of military personnel, and I do a similar thing here with OSCE, I work on educational programs for law enforcement officials. So I will try to draw some connections between the two jobs during the interview I guess. I'm excited about PASP but my number one choice was ESCD/CT, so I hope I will be shortlisted for that one as well!
