About the PAACC Internship Program

The Pittsburgh Airport Area Chamber of Commerce strives to provide interns with a comprehensive learning experience in a hands-on working environment.  In addition to performing the job duties for the position that they have been specifically hired for, Chamber interns are exposed to all functions of the business, including: administration, leadership and sales.

Internship positions are unpaid. PAACC will work with interns to ensure course credit is granted for work performed. PAACC staff will work with the interns in developing several pieces of work that can be added to one’s portfolio. Upon successful completion of the internship, letters of recommendation will be written when requested.

What are we looking for?

In general, we look for students from all disciplines that have the desire to interact in a dynamic, fast-paced environment. Requirements include: strong communication skills (verbal and written), attention to detail, computer proficiency, and time management and prioritization skills. Business coursework is a plus. The candidate must be a junior or senior in good academic standing.

Internship hours are flexible; one can expect to work between 15-25 hours a week.

About the Organization

The Pittsburgh Airport Area Chamber of Commerce was established for the purpose of developing a coalition of businesses in the communities surrounding the Pittsburgh International Airport.  Its mission is to advance and encourage the growth of the commercial, industrial, civic and other interests of these communities as well as promoting and encouraging observance of the highest ethical and moral standards in the conduct of business within these same communities. The PAACC is proud to be the voice of over 1,000 businesses in the airport area and to serve 31 communities.  The Chamber operates from two facilities: our main office in Moon Township and our satellite office in Carnegie.
