My internship in the UN City
Hello, my name is Vaidas Batutis. I started my internship during the last semester of my Bachelor studies of Telecommunications at KTU.
My internship took place in Denmark, Copenhagen. I was working with the ICT team of the WHO regional office for Europe. I think the intergovernmental organisation is the best place to work temporarily because you can meet professionals from all over the world working together!
UN building is open 24/7 thus it is very convenient for people willing to work longer hours or spending some time working on private issues. What I liked the most during my internship was the orientation on the results (quoting my colleague “We are working here not for the amount of hours; we are working here to do the job”).
I learned a lot just in a few months: about the specifics of intergovernmental organisations, preparation of policy documents, organisation’s dependency on quality services provision and many other things.
