  53. My eleven months as trainee and part of the FSFE's international team,
  54. have been full with new things to learn, great people to meet,
  55. challenges to overcome and opportunities to grasp. There was never a
  56. boring day. I was involved in high-level legal and policy work as well
  57. as community building and awareness-raising activities. I was in the
  58. core preparation team of short and long-term campaigns.

  136. With my internship at the Free Software Foundation Europe, I
  137. was given the opportunity to work together with amazing and
  138. highly motivated people. I could bring in my existing skills in
  139. a meaningful way, as well as learn a whole lot of new technical
  140. methods and ways to enthuse people. In my usual field of
  141. statistics and data analysis, Free Software and Open Data
  142. becomes increasingly important and is a key to privacy-friendly
  143. and ethical Data Science, which is why I am so delighted to be
  144. able to contribute to the work the FSFE is doing.

  149. <h2>Who we're looking for:</h2>
  150. <p>
  151. FSFE interns are a pretty diverse bunch. If you are interested in
  152. working on the frontline of technology policy and activism, then
  153. you've come to the right place. You're fired up about a free
  154. information society, and you've already done something to tell others
  155. why freedom matters? Then this internship is for you. Your academic
  156. background and qualifications matter less than your experience, your
  157. will to learn, and your ability to get things done. We expect:
  158. </p>
  159. <ul>
  160. <li>
  161. Solid basic knowledge of, and considerable interest in, Free
  162. Software (required)
  163. </li>
  164. <li>
  165. Fluent English (written and spoken) is a requirement;
  166. a working knowledge of other languages is an asset.
  167. </li>
  168. <li>
  169. Basic acquaintance with working on GNU/Linux systems (desirable)
  170. </li>
  171. <li>
  172. Ability to be creative, responsible, and to multitask.
  173. </li>
  174. <li>
  175. Ability to integrate into a young, motivated and professional team
  176. </li>
  177. <li>
  178. No programming skills required. Programming is one of the
  179. few things you probably <i>won't</i> be doing during your
  180. internship, unless you're applying for a technical
  181. internship.
  182. </li>
  183. <li>We want more women to be involved in Free Software. That's
  184. why when there are candidates with equal qualification, we will give
  185. preference to applications from suitably qualified female candidates.</li>
  186. </ul>

  190. <p class="none">
  191. I am passionate about Free Software and I always wanted to help with
  192. its promotion. That's why an offer to help the FSFE was a perfect fit
  193. for me. During my internship, I worked mostly on developing the FSFE's
  194. infrastructure and helped by adding documentation for specific tasks
  195. involving different services. Interns at FSFE are really useful, as
  196. they bring their experience and knowledge to the FSFE and, given the
  197. structure and openness of the organisation, are able to do meaningful
  198. work that has a real value.
