Sightline Institute, the Northwest’s sustainability think tank, is looking for a creative, organized intern to help improve and market our web-based resources. Strong writers with online computer skills (or willingness to learn) are preferred. This internship will likely start in early May, 2011.

Projects may include: preparation and marketing of our new website; marketing upcoming research products and ongoing resources like our news service and blog; contributing to our social media platforms (Facebook, Flickr, and/or Twitter); occasional blogging opportunities; and targeted outreach campaigns. Other projects may arise, or change depending on the intern’s experience and skill set.

Interns typically work two days a week for three months, but hours and duration are flexible. The position is unpaid, but interns do receive a free bus pass and occasional gelato. Interns participate fully in the life of the organization, are given high responsibility and independent projects, and highly encouraged to contribute ideas in staff discussions.

Sightline promotes a sustainable economy and way of life in the Pacific Northwest by providing Cascadia's community problem solvers with practical vision and innovative thinking. For more information on Sightline please see www.sightline.org and daily.sightline.org.
