Green Seal is seeking applicants for two paid internship positions for the Fall 2018 term (September to December).


Successful candidates will have academic or professional experience in sustainability, green business, and/or environmental and health analysis. We are primarily seeking graduate students and professionals but will also consider highly experienced undergraduate students.

 

Successful candidates will be passionate and knowledgeable about environmental impact reductions through greener product choices and have a basic understanding of business case for sustainability. A strong understanding of supply chain management, building and product certification schemes, and life cycle assessments (LCAs) is a plus. A demonstrated ability to learn quickly, write compellingly, provide quality work, and develop expertise in a new subject is weighed more greatly than previous experience.

 

Interns will assist our staff in the Science and Standards Department on technical and market research, data analysis, and communications projects. Interns are expected to work independently and as part of a team, and manage their time while working on multiple projects.

 

Responsibilities:

• Work approximately 20 hours per week in our Farragut North, Washington D.C. office.

• Conduct research on health and environmental technical and policy research, identify market trends and drivers in the green product sector, and support the development of communications and marketing tools for the Green Seal client community. 

• Write for Green Seal’s blog.

• Perform some administrative work.

 

Qualifications:

• A graduate student in business, scientific or health research.

• Demonstrated interest in sustainable business, green building operations, product certification programs (Green Seal, FSC, EnergyStar), product lifecycle research. Note: Green Seal’s programs do not focus on energy efficiency or renewable energy.

• Strong research abilities.

• Excellence in writing, communications, blogging, fact-sheet development. 

• An intellectual curiosity, ability to multi-task and handle quickly shifting priorities.

• Must be dependable and deliver high quality, thorough, accurate, and complete work.

 

Additional details:

·      A $2,000 stipend will be paid in total and will be disbursed periodically.

·      Green Seal allows for some program flexibility that would allow the intern to also receive academic credit.

 

Application Process:

Please submit a cover letter, resume, and a brief writing sample of no more than 3 pages.

 

Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis, so early submissions (by Friday, August 24) are recommended. NO PHONE CALLS OR EMAILS WILL BE ANSWERED.
