About: The American Chamber of Commerce (AmCham) in Taipei is a non-profit, non-partisan business organization dedicated to promoting the interests of international business in the Republic of China (Taiwan). In the 63 years since its founding, AmCham has become one of the largest, most effective business organizations in Taiwan. With more than 1,000 members representing more than 500 companies, AmCham speaks with collective authority on international business matters in every sector of the economy.
Intern Responsibilities: The IIP intern will be considered as part of the reporting staff of the Taiwan Business Topics monthly magazine, the magazine of the American Chamber of Commerce in Taipei. The intern will assist with researching (largely by conducting interviews) and writing articles for publication, as well as helping with proofreading and other editorial tasks. The IIP intern will also have the opportunity to attend speeches, presentations, and other events sponsored by the American Chamber of Commerce. This IIP placement provides the opportunity to learn more about how international business is conducted, particularly the economic, political, and social environment in which business is done in Taiwan.
Qualifications: The IIP intern will function as a magazine reporter without close day-to-day supervision. Therefore, successful applicants must possess the ability to work well independently and demonstrate strong oral and written communications skills. IIP candidates with interests in Asian studies, international relations and/or economics are encouraged to apply. A working level of Mandarin skills is preferred but not required.
