The Pakistan Mission to the United Nations in New York represents Pakistan at the United Nations Headquarters and its various agencies located in New York. The work is rigorous and diverse, requiring flexibility and long working hours.
Interns are involved in supporting the work of an officer and are guided by the officers in advancing Pakistan’s interests at the United Nations. An intern will need to develop a solid understanding of the positions and policies of the Government of Pakistan in the areas they are assigned to. As an intern, you may be required to cover various briefings at the UN Headquarters and to assist the concerned officer in conducting some background research on different issues. Note taking and reporting to the officers is one of the regular tasks that an intern performs at the Mission.
