Ecologic Transatlantic Internship

Students and recent university graduates from the US and Canada are invited to apply for a position as a Transatlantic Intern at Ecologic. Each year, Ecologic brings young people interested in environmental policy to its headquarters in Berlin to participate in its international environmental research and consulting program. Interns are integrated into Ecologic’s policy research and office routines, providing them real-world experience in an academic environment. The intern’s work program will depend on his or her interests, skills, and experience, as well as on current projects at Ecologic. Interns also have the opportunity to participate in events and conferences hosted by various organizations in Berlin's transatlantic community, enabling them to gain a broader understanding of important policy issues.

Applicants should generally have at least a bachelor's degree. Students may wish to pursue an Ecologic internship as part of their graduate degree program (in public policy, international relations, environmental studies, law or other relevant disciplines), or they may do so prior to commencing graduate studies. Starting and ending dates are flexible; generally, internships last for six to twelve months. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis, preferably four to six months in advance of the desired start date. German language skills are an asset but not required. Interns wishing to improve their German language skills are encouraged to take time from their 32-hour per week schedule at Ecologic to pursue language classes.

I applied to this internship about 1 1/2 months ago and I still haven't heard anything from them. I feel like my life is on hold until I know their answer. This is unfortunate because I'm already in Berlin; I'm in the city where I want to live. I love Berlin, but I can't enjoy it because I'm so nervous.
