The National Women’s Business Council (NWBC) is searching for a college/university undergraduate or graduate student to join the team for a spring internship for a three to four-month term beginning late January 2018 (flexible start date).
The NWBC was established via the Women’s Business Ownership Act of 1988, HR 5050. Throughout the years, the NWBC has brought together women business owners, policymakers, bankers, representatives of women’s business organizations, and other stakeholders to identify the unique challenges facing women business owners and to formulate potential solutions.
As the government’s only independent voice for women entrepreneurs, the NWBC’s mission is two-fold:
This NWBC Spring Intern is unpaid and based in Washington, DC. A transit subsidy can be provided. This is a part-time internship, with a minimum requirement of 12 hours per week. The position is open to students of all academic backgrounds. The program will also include leadership and professional development programming and mentorship opportunities.
The NWBC Spring Intern will report directly to the Program and Operations Manager, but will also support other members of the team covering a wide range of operational, administrative, communications and engagement, and research tasks, including but not limited to:
Please submit a resume and brief supporting statement (maximum 500 words) to firstname.lastname@example.org. The statement should include information about you, why you are interested in this internship, and how it will support your professional goals. Please only include “Spring 2018 Intern” in the subject line of your email.
Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis through Wednesday, January 24, 2018. Again, this internship requires a minimum commitment of 12 hours per week, is unpaid, and based in Washington, DC. Interns are eligible to receive transit benefits to cover costs of transportation via WMATA during the duration of the internship.
