Internship and Employment Opportunities

The WAM House has established relationships with various businesses and organizations around the world to provide its participants opportunities to give back, be a part of something bigger than themselves, be exposed to other cultures, and provide for their needs through the wonderful world of work. These businesses and organizations range from non-profit Micro Enterprise Development organizations reaching out to children and women trapped in the sex trade of Thailand to a financial consulting company in the Midwest U.S.A.

The WAM House only acts as a portal or connector for the participants to the organizations and businesses. The partnering organizations and businesses are not obligated to hire or offer internships to participants: participants most successfully go through application and interviewing processes just as anyone would.

The overseas opportunities would be carried out after completing the WAM House program, which ends in June. Domestic opportunities may be pursued while in the program. Even though the relationships have been established with various organizations and businesses to provide for opportunities, there may be times when the organization or business may not have an open position due to down-turns in business, the position being filled, etc… The WAM House can make the contact for the participant, or the participant can reach out and do the contacting to explore the most current opportunities.

The opportunities fall into four categories: paid internships, non-paid internships, independent contractors and paid employee positions. Independent contractor means that you are self-employed and pay for your own of everything. It’s up to you to get business (having received training beforehand of course and constant communication with the company for whom you are selling). These are often great opportunities for those who are entrepreneurial, can live on a shoe-string budget for about twelve months until you build up a clientele, and are self-motivated. Most positions will tend to be non-paid internships, which may mean working another job to get the bills paid, yet still provides great opportunities for gaining valuable experience.
