Internship

Thank you for your application for an internship with UNIDO. I regret having to inform you that the Private Sector Development Branch has not been in a position to find a suitable placement for you. 

Please let me know if you would be interested in having an internship in another area.

Further we thank you for your interest in the work of the Organization and wish you every success for the future.

Best regards
UNIDO Internship Coordinator

I'm currently pretty disappointed; I was really hoping to get this internship. On the bright side, at least they asked me if I was interested in other areas, so maybe hope isn't lost. I told them that anything to do with human rights, media or the environment would be fine, but I really don't know if they will find me a suitable position because my background is quite unrelated. Ah well, I guess this just means that I should apply for more internships. But I have to say that I'm not very confident because I applied for this internship through a contact and so I had a bigger chance of getting this one.

I think what made me especially sad was the fact that I was imagining myself in Vienna already. My imagination went wild when I applied; I even imagined writing a blog entry saying that I got the internship. I guess this is just another way of saying that I got my hopes up, but I don't regret it. I also applied for an internship with the EU, but I'm not going to hear back from them until next month so I'll try not to get my hopes too high.
