“Out of all of the internships I applied for, I wanted to be at the AlabamaGermany Partnership the most. It has enabled me to use both of my majors in a business setting. Being an intern at the AlabamaGermany Partnership has given me the opportunity to see behind the scenes of German business.”
“Working at AGP expanded my own network of contacts and opened up a vast number of doors for my future. During the following year, I stayed around and volunteered when I could, because the AlabamaGermany Partnership is an organization which I can and will always support for all the good work it does for the state, for businesses, and what it did for me.”

“After studying abroad in Germany, I knew I wanted to work somewhere that had both local and German ties. For this reason, the AlabamaGermany Partnership was my top choice, and the organization came highly recommended by everyone at UAB. An internship at the AlabamaGermany Partnership is a unique experience.”
College students and recent graduates make up the majority of past AGP interns. If you do not fall into these categories, ask our director if you would be eligible.
Due to AGP’s status as a nonprofit, this internship is unpaid. However, with the connections built through the organization, it proves very valuable. Inquire with your school to see if you can receive credit for your time here.
An intern’s schedule is built to be flexible around other school and work commitments. At AGP, we are grateful for the amount of work you can reasonably provide.
An intern’s day-to-day requirements are varied. Sometimes a day is filled with paperwork, others could be spent travelling to companies around Alabama, and some involve attending and helping prepare for AGP events.
To apply for an internship at AGP, an updated resume, cover letter, and inquiry email should be sent to the main office by email.
Internships are available in the Fall, Spring, and Summer terms.
Most of the work involved requires being at the main office in Birmingham, Alabama. In special scenarios, an intern can help out with the organization via web.
This internship broadens potential career options with German companies. By interning with AGP, you personally interact with various German companies located in Alabama. The internship provides essential experience and exposes you to German careers in Alabama.
