What to Expect

ESA’s internships extend up to four months and typically start in the Spring each year. These paid internships are part-time assignments, ranging from 12 to 24 hours each week, and lasting a minimum of four months up to a full year.

Participants in the internship program will get a hands-on experience of what it is like to work at a multidisciplinary environmental consulting firm. Experiences vary based on your interests, but we love when our interns are highly involved in:

  • Producing technical, business, and/or marketing work products
  • Analyzing data and contributing to cutting-edge research
  • Supporting project, business management, and/or marketing teams
  • Collaborating with diverse technical teams
  • Understanding environmental protection regulations and their application
  • Learning about local planning and environmental issues and requirements
  • Conducting surveys or monitoring on project sites
  • Participating in public outreach and collaboration
  • And more!
