The HQ MARCOM Internship Programme (MCIP) has the following objectives:
To contribute to creating a more diverse workforce through encouraging Divisions/Offices to take on interns of different nationalities, origins and backgrounds in order to provide MARCOM with a fresh and more diverse pool of potential future job applicants;
To provide interns with an opportunity to learn from the NATO community and get a thorough understanding and balance view of the Organization;
To provide HQ MARCOM with access to the latest theoretical and technical knowledge that the intern may apply through practical work assignments, as well as the additional staff resources;
To expand the understanding of NATO in Alliance countries by having interns return to their countries and/or universities after completing the internship and share their experience.
