Ceres actively seeks to engage interns in our work. We have a number of exciting projects going at any one time and find the logistical, research, analysis, and writing support of interns to be of great value. We also hope working here inspires the next generation of professionals to "accelerate and expand the adoption of sustainability business practices and solutions to build a healthy global economy." Ceres hires a combination of undergraduate and graduate students, and that is often dictated by the projects we are managing.

All summer positions are now filled and we are no longer accepting applications. We will be posting fall opportunities in late July (those positions start in mid-September).

Ceres’ interns support Program, Communications, and Development staff working with a wide variety of constituents within the Ceres network: environmental activists, investors, funders, and corporations. While providing some administrative support, interns will primarily work in one of the following areas using skills in research, project coordination, IT and communications.

Spring Semester

Each December through early January, Ceres searches for individuals to intern in our office, from mid-January through mid-May. Again, these interns will work between 10-15 hours a week. The pay rate is $12.00 an hour. During this time, we also hire about 6-8 individuals.

Summer Intern Program

Each February, Ceres advertises for our summer program. During March we conduct interviews and make placements. Our Summer Intern Program is held during the months of June and July, and runs for an 8-week period. The work hours are Monday through Friday, from 9am to 5pm. We pay a stipend of $3500 for the eight weeks and provide a pass on the MBTA systems for June and July. We typically hire 8-10 interns, who are a mix of undergraduate and graduate students.

Fall Semester

Each August, Ceres looks for candidate who would like to intern in our office, in one of our program areas, from September through mid-December. During the fall session, interns will work between 10-15 hours a week. (This is adapted to work with class or other work schedules.) The pay rate is $12.00 an hour. We generally hire about 6-8 individuals.
