Application and Internship Postings

We are pleased to offer an outstanding and substantive internship program for the nation’s best and brightest young leaders. At the Chamber, you will obtain a hands-on, meaningful work experience designed to meet your academic and career goals.

Program Status

The health and safety of our employees and our community is a top priority as we navigate the coronavirus pandemic. Since mid-March, Chamber employees have been working remotely in order to comply with local stay at home orders; and throughout all of this, we have continued to serve our members, advocate for businesses, and support our communities.

However, due to the uncertainty of the next few months, we have put our internship program largely on hold.

We thank you for your time and interest in the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and look forward to seeing your application in the future.
