*Geoscience Workforce Program Internship Opportunity 2014 Summer Data
The AGI Workforce Program tracks the supply and demand of geoscientists by
collecting original data and analyzing existing data from Federal and
industry sources, in order to inform the geoscience community of workforce
trends and issues through regular reports. The Workforce Program also
engages the next generation of geoscientists by supporting student
recruitment at the college level and by communicating with students,
faculty, and non-academic professionals about making the transition into
the geoscience workforce after graduation.
AGI’s Workforce Program is seeking an intern to work with the Workforce
Staff this summer. Tasks will include selected research and analysis
projects, data entry, quality control of new data, and database management
for AGI’s Geoscience Student Exit Survey and AGI’s Directory of Geoscience

activities of the workforce program, such as communication with geoscience
societies and university departments and creating new documents and
materials related to issues concerning the geoscience community.
This internship is intended for students (either pursuing an undergraduate
or Master’s degree) with experience with data collection, data entry and
database management. A background in geosciences is not required to apply
for this position, but is strongly encouraged. Strong communication and
teamwork skills are required.

the American Geosciences Institute in Alexandria, VA. The intern will be
