Long Term Couch for Intern at UN Head Quarter in New York
Posted March 13th, 2012 - 4:55 am by from Bhubaneswar, India (Permalink)

I am a PhD student from one the premier management college of India. I have been offered an internship at the UN Headquarters in New York for 6 months. It is going to be an unpaid thing (as UN never pays its interns) and all expenses are supposed to be borne by me. Though it is an excellent opportunity at the moment I am unable to think of pursuing this dream of mine because of contraints of arranging so much of funds to survive in a such expensive city of the world without any funding assistance.

I am supposed to work for 35 hours in the UN office and think that I can maybe work it out in case there exists possibilities of working during the evening and weekends and having the support of some benevolent hosts in the city. I am good at teaching mathematics, science, accountancy to kids or even to under graduate students. I am a good cook as well.

Looking forward to any kind of assistance and advice.

I have a fully furnished and cozy room in Kolkata which I am willing to exchange as well for anyone travelling from New York to Kolkata.
