Did you know? The world is changing extremely rapidly, and a summer internship with USAID’s Global Health Fellows Program II (GHFP-II) can put you at the cutting edge of international development work to witness – and help shape – the global implications of this change. To give your career a step up, GHFP-II is proud to present another webinar free of charge! Current interns working at USAID and our Lead for Recruitment share what it takes to work in global health, from their own perspective on the inside. Learn about the internship program and application process, and strategies for writing essays that convey your personal story and your passion for global health work. Find out what kind of preparation worked for interns who made it. Hear about the cool projects they’re working on right now, and what they plan to do after their internships. You can even submit your questions now about the internship program, the application process, and the essays. Take advantage of this unique opportunity, because the more you know, the better. 

Closed captioning will be available for this webinar.
