Experts in the environmental world come from a wide variety of academic and professional backgrounds.

Explore remote environmental internships

Those who are accepted to our remote environmental internship program develop essential skills for the field, compile a portfolio of their professional work, and build up a network of experts. Each of these key elements ensures they stand out from their peers, and enter a competitive field several steps ahead.

Remote environmental internships allow competitive young professionals to familiarize themselves with the top technologies and processes of the environmental field. Interns are placed with a diverse range of organizations, including nonprofits, environmental publications, research facilities, and leading tech companies. Of course, remote internships vary slightly from many in-person opportunities. Each intern hones skills in research, data interpretation, writing, editing, and project management. These skills not only set interns apart from the competition, but ensure they leave their internship with a strong portfolio to showcase their skills.

While remote environmental internships don’t take place in an office, interns forge strong networks in their chosen industry. From tech entrepreneurs and sustainability experts to business professionals, the connections interns make are incredibly valuable. Letters of reference, mentorship, and professional introductions help interns to get ahead when they finish their studies. Regardless of your chosen path within the environmental industry, there’s nothing more valuable than a great professional network!
