    The Seoul Metropolitan Government is currently recruiting 20 foreign students enrolled in universities in the Seoul area for its Seoul Global Internship Program, now in its 14th year. The city is accepting applications between May 15 (Thu) and 28 (Wed).

    Global Interns will be selected through the process of document screening and interviews; the final results will be announced on June 13. Over the course of the internship, which runs from June 23 to August 8, Global Interns will work six hours a day, five days a week learning about different administrative duties such as: collecting and analyzing overseas policies in Seoul Metropolitan Government offices, assisting in holding international events, and working as translators and interpreters.

    During the program, Global Interns will also participate in community service activities such going to senior centers, visiting with the elderly, and helping push those in wheelchairs. In addition, they will also have a chance to explore Seoul on field trips by visiting Arisu Water Purification Centers, which supply water to Seoul, and taking a ride on the Hangang River Cruise Ship.

    The Seoul Metropolitan Government has held its Global Internship Program since 2008, scheduling the program to coincide with university breaks every summer and winter. Up until now, a total of 389 foreign students from 63 different countries have successfully completed the internship program.

    Any foreign student who wishes to apply to the Global Internship Program must fill out an application and submit it to global_intern@seoul.go.kr by May 28.
