Who’s excited for the Olympics? I’m saving the Opening Ceremony on my DVR for later, but I’m watching women’s beach volleyball this morning. I figure it’s good inspiration for when I head to the beach to play in an hour or so. It’s hard not to love the Olympics. You can get worked up about the politics or the financial stuff, but once the athletes start competing, you just have to watch. The International Olympic Committee is the organization behind all of the magic. They’re based in Lausanne, Switzerland, and they are the “catalyst for collaboration between all parties of the Olympic family, from the National Olympic Committees (NOCs), the International Sports Federations (IFs), the athletes, the Organising Committees for the Olympic Games (OCOGs), to the TOP partners, broadcast partners and United Nations agencies.”

Go for the Gold!

The IOC website is ok for information on The Committee, but the site is really focused on the current events. Luckily, the Wikipedia entry on the IOC is excellent. It should tell you everything that you need to know about the organization. Now, it shouldn’t be a surprise that the International Olympic Committee’s Jobs page doesn’t have any openings posted right now. When an organization is this event-focused, they’re probably not going to be hiring in the middle of their big event. However, I realize that an internship with the IOC is a dream for some of you. Waiting for them to post an internship is one approach (I verified on LinkedIn that they do offer internships), but I’d be more aggressive. You’re not going to network your way in with an IOC member right away, but think about how many stakeholders work with the IOC. Start at the lowest levels with your networking and work your way up. There’s no doubt in my mind that getting an internship at an organization like the IOC is all about knowing the right people (just look at the “Controversies” section on their website).
