5. Foreign Missions
I studied Russian at the university. This allowed me various paid opportunities to work with Russian Mission in India.
Here, I learnt that irrespective of your language knowledge, one can work with a foreign mission (in Delhi) of their choice & contribute on different matters like Trade, Bilateral cooperation, policy etc.
How to approach?
Checkout website of the mission/embassy you want to work at and see if you find opportunities.
6. Industry Associations
Places like FICCI, CII etc. hire based on qualification and requirement.
They offer valuable internships for people law, policy, and finance/eco graduates.
It's tricky to keep a track of such internships, tho. I trust you'd find a way if you want it!
I am certain you'll find more such options other than those in list.
Be smart, use your google skills and research well!
