Interns are a critical part of the PNWER team. Help contribute to our mission while gaining valuable experience and building your network.
What to expect as a PNWER intern:
- Work closely with U.S. and Canadian legislators and business leaders in the Pacific Northwest region (including Alaska, Alberta, British Columbia, Idaho, Montana, Northwest Territories, Saskatchewan, Oregon, Washington and Yukon)
- Become acquainted with the operations of a small, non-profit organization engaged in regional economic cooperation
- Receive mentoring in the achievement of your goals
- Hands-on experience in the operation of PNWER's working groups
What PNWER expects from interns:
Internship needs change frequently, but generally include:
The hours per week are flexible, and we are happy to work around class schedules for current college students, but we request a minimum of 10 – 15 hours per week commitment.
The position is unpaid, but students will gain valuable experience and insight into policy-making within Canadian / U.S. relations in their specific field. Upon successful completion of the internship, letters of recommendation will be provided. Internships may be eligible for school credit hours through your university. Please contact your university for more information.
