Professional Development Opportunities

Permalink to Professional Development Opportunities

Occasionally we come across professional development opportunities that we just have to share.

These first two internship opportunities come to you from Second Nature, a Boston-based non-profit organization working to proactively build a sustainable and positive global future. They’re currently looking for candidates to fill two paid internship positions.

The Operations and Research Internship deals in a variety of tasks including data entry, research, and support for existing and future projects, etc. They’re looking for detail-oriented candidates who are familiar with higher education administration and interested in non-profit work. For more information and to apply, click here.

The Design and Communications Internship deals in a variety of tasks including graphic design, writing and content development, website maintenance, etc. They’re looking for creative candidates who are familiar with Adobe Creative Suite programs and are interested in finding creative solutions to problems.

The third opportunity is a position with the Duke Campus Farm, a working farm in Durham, NC, dedicated to catalyzing positive change in the ways we grow, eat, and think about food.  They’re expanding their team to include a Production Manager.  The position will manage the one-acre growing space, train and supervise student crews, maintain crop and sales records, and collaborate with stakeholders on farm-based education projects.  They’re looking for a candidate with at least one full season of experience in farm management, in addition to teaching and programming experience (ideally in a farm setting).  For more information on the position and to apply, click here.
