JOBS: Summer 2008 Research Internships at Strategic Sustainability Consulting

Posted by Jennifer Woofter on March 26, 2008

Strategic Sustainability Consulting (SSC) is a Washington, DC-based company that provides organizations with the tools and expertise needed to actively manage their social and environmental impacts. We specialize in helping under-resourced organizations implement sustainable solutions usually reserved for large, multinational companies. Please visit our website at http://www.sustainabilityconsulting.com for more information about our products and services.

We’re looking for 4-6 research interns to help on a variety of sustainability topics. If you believe you might be a good fit with our objectives (see below), please send your CV and a cover letter to denise@sustainabilityconsulting.com, indicating the position for which you’d like to be considered. We will accept inquiries through April 18, 2008, with initial interviews on a rolling basis. Please be prepared to provide two writing samples and a list of references. NO PHONE CALLS PLEASE.

The SSC Research Interns will work closely with lead consultants to provide background material for ongoing consulting projects. Past assignments have included working on client “Green Office Audit” projects, carbon footprinting, researching stakeholder engagement in the mining industry, writing white papers on sustainability topics, creating case studies on “green” supply chains, and developing surveys for employee satisfaction. If you have strong research and analysis skills, and can quickly gather and summarize data into its salient points, this is a great opportunity to dabble in a variety of sustainability topics.

These internships are for 32hours/week for June 16, 2008 – August 15, 2008, and will be local, DC-based. A small stipend will be offered, along with a performance-based bonus. In addition, we will offer job placement coaching. This is a great opportunity for individuals with an interest in getting into the sustainability consulting field, but who can’t make a full-time commitment.
