See what awaits you – here’s a snapshot of what it’s like to intern in Amsterdam based on a typical 6-week program.

Weeks 1 & 2

You’ll know you’re flying over Amsterdam when you see the crisscross of canals through the city. After all the waiting, you’ve made it!

We’ll help you get settled into your new accommodation and catch your breath, then it’s on to your orientation and welcome dinner. It’s here you’ll first meet the other interns and start making new friends.

As you begin your internship you’ll be exhilarated by all the new experiences. You’ll meet your manager and new team, then take a look around the office. Make some time after work to destress and enjoy dinner with the Community Team. Catch a canal taxi home to properly unwind.

As you focus on your internship you’ll be learning so much everyday. It’s a great time to take our Business Workshop to fine-tune your skills with tools and insights you’ll find useful in your internship and beyond.

Get ready to get up close and personal with the canals with our canal cruise tour. Kick back and relax with onboard food and drinks.

From the classic to the modern, from Dutch to Indonesian, you’ll explore the market food scene of Amsterdam to your heart’s content in our guided tour.
