We Need You! Internship Program Openings
May 31st, 2019 by Derek Markham
Over the last few years, CleanTechnica has grown steadily, and we are currently seeing an increase in reach and readership of our coverage of cleantech issues, original journalism, and exclusive reports, videos, and interviews, all of which are, if we do say so ourselves, an excellent adjunct and enabler of the sparkling green economy of the future.
We live in exciting times, and while we’re all mostly optimistic about the promise and potential of a clean and renewable future, we also know that we’ve got a long way to go to get a critical mass of people involved in working toward a more rational (and economically viable) approach to sustainability, especially when we’re fighting dark money and fighting a war over EVs.
The core team here at CleanTechnica have been working hard for years to get to this point, and we’ve learned a thing or two in the process. We’ve learned about everything from how to evaluate specific technologies and vet companies and the people behind them, to how to communicate cleantech and climate issues better, to how to build an audience and a client base, and how to get more eyeballs on important stories. We’ve learned quite a bit about writing, editing, pitching, sales, holding webinars, and producing exclusive content. We’ve learned how to work across different time zones with different languages and personalities and priorities. We’ve learned about the importance of a good mobile site as well as how to cultivate a more civil comments section.
And now it’s time for us to begin teaching those skills to the next generation of journalists, researchers, instigators, fighters, and thinkers. To put it simply, we’re launching our first internship program, with the intent of giving the right individuals the opportunity for some hands-on experience working with our executive team members. There are positions available across our different areas of focus — operations, sales, research, podcasting, and more. These positions will give you hands on experience (well, digitally, anyway) and help you learn from our team of experts about how to grow a media company from the inside out. Our team will benefit from the assistance (so you will help us grow), and the intention is that this program equally (or more than equally) benefit the intern, in terms of getting practical experience and basic training and mentorship in specific skills.
Each of us on the team has something unique we bring to the table in our roles here, and our hope is that by offering internships, we’re also helping to share some of that experience and knowledge we’ve gained with the next generation of cleantech advocates and digital publishers.
