Reception and Events
Students who are interested in interning with us are expected to work at the front desk as well as at our events. Every visitor should get an excellent first impression of the Goethe-Zentrum Atlanta as soon as they walk into the building – this starts with the front desk. The Goethe-Zentrum’s entrance area serves virtually as our “business card” where we welcome our visitors and introduce them to our mission. As an intern, you will also get involved in the preparation, execution, and follow-up of our events.
Internships usually last between 10 and 12 weeks.
Unfortunately, we are not able to offer a compensated internship. Therefore, we would like to ask our prospective interns to arrange funding well in advance of their time here.
