HOW DO I APPLY FOR A INTERNSHIP POSITION AT COCOA?
Fill the online application herein. That’s pretty much the first step.
HOW DO I KNOW IF YOU’VE RECEIVED MY APPLICATION?

HOW DO I KNOW IF A POSITION IS STILL OPEN?
If the posting is online, we’re still looking.
WILL I BE NOTIFIED EVEN IF I’M NOT A MATCH FOR A POSITION?
We wish we could do that, unfortunately that will not be the case. We wish we could send individual replies to all applicants, but can only manage to contact the applicants we’re moving forward with.
WHAT WOULD BE YOUR BEST ADVICE FOR PEOPLE WHO WANTS TO DO AN INTERNSHIP AT COCOA?
Remember that your portfolio serves as your formal introduction to us. Simplify it but spend time showing only the very best of your work. More doesn’t mean better. We prefer quality to quantity.
DO YOU ONLY OFFER YEAR-LONG INTERNSHIPS / PLACEMENTS?
That’s how we do it most of the time, but we are open to 6 month long internships as a minimum.
DO I NEED A SPECIAL KIND OF VISA?
You might, depending on the country you are applying from, but if you are selected we can help you through that process.
ARE YOUR INTERNSHIPS PAID?
We always offer compensation that should suffice for housing and basic living expenses. Government loans or other kinds of financial aid from your home country might come handy.
CAN YOU HELP ME SECURING HOUSING?
Yes, we can help you with that. At first, we recomend you to stay in an Airbnb location, so you get a week or so to become familiarized with the neighborhood and public transportation to then secure a more permanent place, which we can help you find and move to.
We’re sure you’ll probably have more questions so we’ll try to keep updated this section. Anyway, some of the questions only can be answered in an interview.
