THIS POSITION IS CURRENTLY CLOSED
Hey you! Passionate about sustainability and social innovation? Want to work on the frontiers of journalism and new media? Worldchanging is looking for a few bright, creative and exceptionally motivated interns to help us launch several big projects now in the works.
We expect interns to commit to a minimum of 20 hours/week for at least 10 weeks, and to display professionalism in meeting that commitment. You'll need to work at least half time on-site in our cool, funky, Seattle loft office. Most importantly, you'll need a passion for thinking about solutions to the planet's most pressing problems: if you have that, this gig will be exciting, challenging and a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to work on the cutting edge of sustainability.
These positions, though no doubt rewarding on other levels, are unpaid. We can, however, offer incredible exposure, access to great thinkers, invitations to cool events, and, occasionally, a free lunch.
Are you the right person for the job? Tell us why by submitting the appropriate materials (details below), no later than 5:00 pm PST, June 10. And the sooner, the better: applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis.
We're equal opportunity around here, and welcome applications from women and cultural, ethnic and sexual minorities.
