    Intern in public relations in EP

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at European Parliament

    Pros

    The best aspect of the internship was the diversity of my tasks, my autonomy, and the internationality Of the place. Was a great opportunity to meet motivated people from different parts of Europe and abroad, which was also good inspiration for my further studies in the domain.

    Cons

    The biggest con were long working hours- some meetings would only finish late on the evening, whereas reports needed to be done the same day. Surely, it's a task that the role entails, but these hours also continue a con.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give your interns as much autonomy as possible, for them to get 'their hands dirty' and therefore learn more.
