Over the years, CREST has developed a strong internship program to provide real-life sustainable tourism educational opportunities to outstanding students from around the world. We believe education is the key to a sustainable future, and the CREST staff always learns just as much from our interns as they do from us. Internship programs are available during the Fall, Spring, and Summer academic semesters.
CREST's next internship period will be mid-January through mid-May 2020. We have two positions available:
CREST Program and Research Interns provide assistance on research and consulting projects, as well as provide general support when needed for CREST programming. This position is based in Washington, DC and is a great opportunity for someone looking to expand their knowledge of responsible and sustainable travel in hospitality, events, and/or destination management. Successful candidates may be studying tourism, hospitality, international relations, international development, sustainable development, environmental management, or a similar field. The ideal candidate is an enthusiastic, creative individual who'd like to gain experience working in the nonprofit sector.
Intern responsibilities will include:
CREST asks that interns be available for a minimum of 20 hours per week, for a minimum of three months. As the internship is unpaid, preference will be given to students seeking academic credit. Graduate students are preferred, though consideration will be given to exceptional undergraduates.
Applicants for the Program & Research Internship should submit a cover letter, resume, two references (name, position, and contact information), and a short writing sample to Kelsey Frenkiel by Friday, November 22.
