Interns Anonymous goes to Brussels

On what has got to be one of the best things to come out of doing this ‘job’, last week I got to go to Brussels for the day to talk to other European organisations working for better internships. Not only did I get to see how it must have been like for people writing a constitution for their new nation- I also met lots of very interesting and frighteningly multi-lingual people. I took a dictaphone along with me, so click on the soundcloud below to hear a bit more about what’s going on in Europe.

    I will soon begin my search for an internship in Brussels (a requirement of my course) and have heard mixed reactions about the treatment of interns over there. Do you have any advice?

    The mixed reactions reflect a lot of different experiences- e.g. the MEP who led our meeting, Emilie Turunen had a very very happy intern, paid and doing good stuff- but I think some people find it tough- I’m afraid I’m not expert, I’d recommend contacting the european youth forum and asking them for advice.
