IRENA Renewable Energy Learning Partnership (IRELP) is launching global database for internship opportunities
. The global internship database has been created with the intent to help young professionals enter the field of renewable energy and raise the profile of renewable energy as an attractive career option. Internships can be extremely important to career development as the open doors to future jobs, fellowships, graduate school, and networks. Internships not only provide valuable work experience and opportunities for networking, but also give young people the opportunity to test drive a career before committing.
