Apply for this job

Location: Cambridge, MA

MIT Solve: Solve is an initiative from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology aimed at developing and implementing real and lasting solutions to the world’s most pressing challenges—from education and health, to sustainability and economic sustainability. Solve is a membership community that brings together technologists and researchers, social entrepreneurs and business leaders, policymakers, change agents, and activists from across the globe to unearth and implement solutions to specific actionable challenges.

Solve Interns: An internship with Solve is designed to provide students the opportunity to work in an exciting professional setting. Solve is a new initiative, and interns get a front row seat to a start-up office culture within MIT. Solve interns collaborate with various Solve teams to create materials, develop collateral, and execute strategic outreach to a variety of audiences, including partners, members, students, and the general public. Interns have the opportunity to learn about the logistical aspects of Solve’s year-round events, and can be responsible for Salesforce CRM inputs, data cleaning/management, prospect research, social media calendars and drafts, member outreach, scheduling, note-taking, and/or editing.   

Current Intern Placement Availability:

· Communications Team: Handles website and social media content, blog posts, help desk, and comms strategy

Intern Qualifications:

· Applicants should have strong written and oral communication skills and an exceptional eye for detail. Successful interns are those who have a positive attitude, take initiative, like to problem-solve, and are ready to dive into an “all hands on deck” environment. Bonus points if you get a kick out of desk research, database management, and logistical organization. 

· Applicants must be 18+ to apply; current students and recent grads with academic backgrounds in International Relations, Political Science, Environmental Studies, Public Policy, Global Studies, Economics, Marketing, Business, Public Health, and Communications are encouraged to apply, although those with different backgrounds are also welcome to apply. 

Internship time frames generally line up with university semester schedules: spring internship, summer internship, and fall internship. Interns are paid $15/hour. Regrettably, Solve is unable to provide sponsorship for international students, so intern applicants must be legally able to work in the US. Intern hours will not exceed 30 hours/week. 

Fall Internship Application Deadline: July 31st, 2018. To apply, send a résumé and 1 page cover letter to
