The Canadian Embassy to the Czech Republic and the Albatros Foundation have announced a selection procedure for college students and recent college graduates who have an interest in the Romani minority, knowledge of Romani issues, and a desire to learn how the Canadian Embassy in Prague runs. The paid intern will be tasked with researching a variety of subjects, including the situation of Romani people in the Czech Republic.

In addition to administrative and information-related work, the intern will also arrange a visit to a community of Romani people for the ambassador. It will also be possible for the intern to join other projects related to the embassy during the six-month internship.

One condition is an intermediate knowledge of English, while a "working level" of the Romani language is listed as an asset. The internship will run from October 2022 to March 2023 and requires a commitment of between 10 to 15 hours per week.

"I believe working internships are a brilliant way for a student to prepare for real life after school. During the internship the student can acquire skills that can be applied during future employment," said Martin Kanaloš, who has completed a Canadian Embassy internship.

"I learned clearly how to behave in a diplomatic setting. I observed my colleagues who were diplomats, and even in situations where not everything went according to plan, they manage to stay cool and negotiate conditions for work to go forward," Kanaloš said.

The initial selection of candidates for the internship will be performed by the Albatros Foundation. Those who are interested should send their applications to
