The North Texas U.S. Export Assistance Center (NTEAC) is a joint effort bringing together the export business development programs of the U.S. Commercial Service (an agency of the U.S. Department of Commerce) and the export finance programs of the U.S. Small Business Administration. The NTEAC has a limited number of volunteer internships to students considering careers in international business. Only U.S. citizens are eligible for consideration and applicants should be enrolled in a degree program, have a 3.0 GPA or better, and be willing to work unpaid for at least 16 hours per week.

We provide firms with direct sales leads, help them establish contacts with prospective overseas business partners, and offer promotional vehicles to introduce their products and services worldwide. As the principal federal government resource for international trade development and assistance, the U.S. Export Assistance Centers offer a unique internship opportunity for those interested in pursuing a career in international business.

The purpose of the internship is three-fold:

1. To provide a problem solving perspective within a "real World" professional business assistance environment;

2. To provide the student with the ability to creatively link their academic studies and skills with the export business development assistance we provide to our client companies; and

3. To provide the student with in-depth knowledge of the organizations, programs and resource base for international trade development.

Throughout the internship, the student will be assigned a host of duties and activities that include:

  • Helping clients assess and address challenges in export business development
  • Providing market research and customized information to clients
  • Communicating directly with clients and our international offices in day-to-day client assistance
  • Working collaboratively with our business development partner organizations to assist clients
  • Working together with NTEAC staff in the development, promotion, and execution of international trade seminars, webinars, and conferences
  • Outreaching to clients for seminars, webinars, and other international trade development events

Finally, interns also have the opportunity to work on major projects. Such projects may include research reports on selected topics, (i.e. country market/economic studies, industry studies, and "How to" guides pertaining to the export of specific products), as well as trade event projects such as the planning and recruitment for trade missions, trade shows and international business seminars.
