Let's face it: Nowadays, the word "internship" can mean a lot of different things. Depending on where you end up, you might be making copies for eight hours a day or typing numbers into spreadsheets until your eyes hurt. And don't even ask about compensation, because "nobody pays interns anymore."
We can't tell you exactly what your experience as a TWR college intern will look like, but we can guarantee a few things. First, you can be confident that what you do here will matter. Seriously. We're not in the business of creating unpaid copy machine operator positions to fill office space. We need smart, energetic people with fresh perspectives to help us get the good news of Jesus Christ to the world's most unengaged peoples.
Whether you're producing radio programs in Swaziland, managing Web platforms in Singapore, or sharing your ideas with global leadership teams at our headquarters in Cary, NC, you'll be an important part of TWR's main mission: to reach the world for Jesus Christ by mass media so that lasting fruit is produced.
Second, as an intern with TWR, you'll be working with people who are like you in all the right ways and different from you in all the right ways. The global TWR family is united by a deep love for Christ and others, a commitment to the Word of God, and a burning desire to see the kingdom spread to all the nations. But within that united family, there is vibrant diversity. Every day, you'll be interacting with people from around the world, with unique cultural perspectives and years of experience, who will encourage, challenge and grow you in your professional and personal life.
What it comes down to is this: You can search the world over (literally), but you'll be hard pressed to find an internship as unique, challenging, empowering and fun as one with TWR. And, oh yeah, did we mention? You'll even get paid for it.
