The ILO Library welcomes applications for internships from students enrolled in a relevant programme of studies or from professionals having recently completed a degree in information management, library and information studies or equivalent. Internships are generally for periods of 3-4 months.
The internship may involve working on a special project. This could be in the area of information technology, user services, cataloguing, indexing, development of information products or other topic according to the candidate’s area of interest and the needs of the Library.
The Library encourages applications from candidates of all nationalities. Candidates should have good knowledge of at least one of the official languages of the ILO: English, French and Spanish. Other language abilities are an advantage.
Internships are unpaid, but the ILO can offer a small stipend towards living expenses.
The ILO is an agency of the United Nations and the ILO Library in Geneva is the world's leading library on the world of work. It serves as a knowledge base of key information on work issues, sustainable livelihoods, and the work-related aspects of economic and social development, technological change and human rights.
