The White House Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) interns are given a wide range of assignments including conducting research, managing incoming inquiries, attending meetings, and writing memos on a variety of environmental issues. Interns have the opportunity to be involved in groundbreaking projects, working closely with staff from all levels and a variety of backgrounds. The pace in the office is fast, so accuracy and attention to detail are absolute requirements. Interns can expect to begin with the basics and gradually add more specialized projects as they gain experience. 

Other essential intern duties include answering phones, routing mail, copying documents, filing and retrieving information (conventionally or electronically), assembling briefing materials and performing assigned research tasks. 

Qualifications Needed: We are seeking students who are: 

Highly motivated 
Willing to contribute where needed 
Have the ability to handle the inherent pressure that comes with working within the Executive Office of the President. 
Additionally, candidates should have: 

Excellent communications skills 
Computer literacy 
Relevant classroom or practical experience 
We strongly prefer candidates who are available to work full-time, but will consider applicants who cannot. CEQ will work with interns who are attempting to arrange credit with a college or university to help fulfill academic requirements. All internship positions are unpaid. 

Most interns work a typical semester-based schedule (May – August, September – December, January – April); however a position may be customized based on applicant availability and project needs. 

Deadlines for applications are February 15 (Summer), June 1 (Fall), and October 1 (Spring).
