Project Description

The Republic of Korea’s (ROK) global prominence continues to rise with its leadership role as the 13th largest economy and active programs on nuclear security, international assistance, foreign investment, space and aviation, climate change, and science and technology. With the interconnectedness of the ROK to the international community and the global economy, the ROK is both affected by and influences external events in these areas. U.S. Embassy Seoul is looking for a Virtual Student eIntern to help assess the impact of these issues on the bilateral relationship. U.S. Embassy Seoul’s Economic Section will coordinate with the eIntern on goals and objectives, and will specify benchmarks and timelines for the project. The eIntern will conduct online research, including official ROK government websites, non-governmental websites, universities, think tanks, and media outlets on these issues and assess their impact on the ROK and U.S.-ROK bilateral relations.
