Intern Opportunity for Writers

We are starting a new initiative at Green Research that I think will be of interest to students, recent graduates and mid-career folks looking to make a place for themselves in the world of clean tech or sustainability.

We are recruiting interns (unpaid—sorry) with excellent writing skills and a professional interest in environmental sustainability or clean technology. Your task is to contribute one short piece of analytical writing per month to our blog. Each intern takes on a topic or industry that we mutually agree on, follows the business and technology news on that topic, and pulls together a thoughtful analysis on the news of the prior month that has important implications for business leaders, sustainability professionals or investors. Your piece will be published under your name on the Green Research blog and highlighted in our monthly e-mail newsletter.

We’ll provide you with a template to help you shape your thinking and writing and professional feedback and editing to help you refine your ideas into polished pieces. I think it’s a great way to deepen your knowledge of sustainability or clean tech and to gain exposure for your ideas.

My hope is that along the way, we will identify topics in your area that would benefit from a deeper treatment as a research study. If we do, we’ll give you the opportunity to participate the creation of a professional market research study.

Here’s a sample of topics and industries I’d love to have folks working on:
