Ceres actively seeks to engage interns in our work. We have a number of exciting projects going at any one time and find the logistical, research, analysis, and writing support of interns to be of great value. We also hope working here inspires the next generation of professionals to “accelerate and expand the adoption of sustainability business practices and solutions to build a healthy global economy.”
Ceres hires a combination of undergraduate and graduate students, and that is often dictated by the projects we are managing. There are three times throughout the year when we solicit applications from potential interns.
Each August, Ceres looks for candidate who would like to intern in our office, in one of our program areas, from September through mid-December. During the fall session, interns will work between 10-15 hours a week. (This is adapted to work with class or other work schedules.) The pay rate is $12.00 an hour. We generally hire about 6-8 individuals.
Each December through early January, Ceres searches for individuals to intern in our office, from mid-January through mid-May. Again, these interns will work between 10-15 hours a week. The pay rate is $12.00 an hour. During this time, we also hire about 6-8 individuals.
Each February, Ceres advertises for our summer program. During March we conduct interviews and make placements. Our Summer Intern Program is held during the months of June and July, and runs for an 8-week period. The work hours are Monday through Friday, from 9am to 5pm. We pay a stipend of $3300 for the eight weeks and provide a pass on the MBTA systems for June and July. We typically hire 8-10 interns, who are a mix of undergraduate and graduate students.
Should you be interested in working as an intern at Ceres, please apply during the times noted, and provide us with a cover letter, resume, and two writing samples. You may send your applications to firstname.lastname@example.org. In the subject line of your message, please note if you are applying for the Fall Semester, Spring Semester, or the Summer Intern Program.
