Since the days of the Gold Rush, the Bay Area has been at the centre of global commerce. The economic activity of the region attracts a range of international companies and startups and is considered the birthplace of new media and the worldwide technology boom. San Francisco and Silicon Valley house some of the most innovative tech companies in the world.

As an intern at SACC-SF/SV, you have the unique opportunity to be part of the cutting-edge setting that is the Bay Area today. Our dynamic team of “doers” organize our work much like a startup and provides the opportunity to explore different skill sets. You will be able to expand your professional network, gain new experience and advance your skills by working in a highly inspirational atmosphere and by meeting and collaborating with industry leaders and professionals in a variety of business sectors. This is a once in a lifetime chance to gain a competitive edge — in Sweden and internationally — and to experience a part of the world that is changing history.

The two intern roles entail different focal areas of responsibility. At SACC-SF/SV we strive to build an effective team. Therefore, the team members have different focal areas of responsibility and roles may be adapted to suit the qualification of the applicants. 

Requirements:

  • Higher education within Business, Marketing, Project Management or equivalent
  • Related work or extracurricular experience
  • Structured, creative, outgoing personality, salesmanship and initiative skills
  • Teamwork and leadership skills
  • Stress resistant and able to keep a positive attitude in all situations
  • Service-minded
  • Excellent verbal and written skills in Swedish and English

This is a 6-months Internship. The internship has no monetary compensation, as SACC-SF/SV is a non-profit organization. As an intern abroad, you may apply for scholarships. Some students, depending on the university program, might also be eligible to receive student aid from CSN. SACC-USA will assist with the visa application. You must be a Swedish citizen eligible for a J-1 visa to be considered for this position. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact info@sacc-sf.org.
