OIA Intern Recruitment

The Office of International Affairs (OIA) in the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) is seeking volunteer (unpaid) graduate-level and undergraduate-level interns for ongoing projects. NTIA is part of the U.S. Department of Commerce and is the Executive Branch's principal voice on domestic and international telecommunications and information technology policy issues.

As a part of NTIA, OIA formulates, articulates and implements policies to enhance competition in the global telecommunications sector. These policies are designed in consultation with U.S. commercial interests. OIA presents these policies before foreign ministerial officials in multilateral entities (CITEL, APEC), in bilateral discussions, in intergovernmental organizations (INTELSAT, ITU) and in special initiatives. More information on the agency's international activities can be found on the OIA Homepage.
