The mission of the German American Chamber of Commerce of the Midwest (GACC Midwest) is to promote and assist in the expansion of bilateral trade and investment between Germany and the United States. GACC Midwest is located in downtown Chicago and offers internship programs for talented students and recent graduates.

  • The intern will gain experience by helping to organize one of the world’s largest holiday markets outside of Germany. Interns will primarily assist with activities related to event planning and coordination, for example organizing entertainment for the market (choral groups, dance troupes, etc.) and performing important administrative tasks. Interns will also assist with some event marketing activities such as media outreach.
  • The intern will focus on pre-event planning and administration as well as sponsorship acquisition. In November and December, the intern will help on site at the Market and at the on-site office handling customer relations, sales and vendor administration.

Please note:

  • The intern must be at least 21 years old.
  • Knowledge of the German language is not a requirement but would be helpful.
