      Green Economy Research Intern
      Council for Community and Economic Research (C2ER)
      Center for Regional Economic Competitiveness
      Washington, DC Metro
      May – August, 2010

      The Center for Regional Economic Competitiveness (CREC) (
      www.creconline.org), is the host organization managing the Council for
      Community and Economic Research (C2ER) (www.c2er.org), the Labor Market
      Information Training Institute (www.lmiontheweb.org), and the Association
      of Public Data Users (www.apdu.org). CREC was created in 2000 to provide
      research and technical assistance to regions across North America in
      improving their economies and creating jobs. C2ER is a membership
      organization created in 1961 to promote excellence in community and
      economic research – a key element in support the strategies that regions
      are developing to promote economic prosperity. C2ER works to improve data
      availability, enhance data quality, and foster learning about regional
      economic analytic methods.
      CREC and its affiliate members groups (C2ER, LMI Training Institute, and
      APDU) accomplish our mission through an array of activities including
      professional networking, technical training in community/economic data and
      regional economic research methods, advocacy for regional statistics and
      economic/workforce development planning programs, applied research in
      states and regions, community leadership facilitation, as well as
      innovative data or research products/services. Our offices are located
      above the Rosslyn Metro Station in Arlington, VA – just across the Potomac
      River from Washington, DC.

      Internship Details
      CREC is looking for one or more interns to focus on various projects over
      the summer, the most prominent of which is a study of the Green Economy in
      one state, an ARRA-funded project encompassing multiple research tasks.
      During the internship period, CREC through its C2ER affiliate plans to
      survey thousands of employers to quantify the current and future green
      employment in the state. This research is central to the project and will
      determine many of the recommendations for state policymakers. For this
      project, the summer intern(s) will work with C2ER staff to support the
      survey by helping to obtain appropriate survey response rate, analyze key
      findings, and assist in preparing the study results for public and private
      business leaders.

      This project is anticipated to require a significant amount of time, but
      the intern(s) will also have an opportunity to work on other projects as
      well. Other research areas will include:
      · Working with subject matter experts to redesign an e-learning
      training program for staff conducting US Dept. of Labor-sponsored state
      employment projections
      · Investigating the level of state expenditures in economic
      · Organizing and reporting business development assistance
      programs sponsored by Federal agencies and the states
      · Conducting community and economic research to support regional
      economic and workforce planning activities
      · Other projects as appropriate
      Candidates should be a graduate level student in city and regional
      planning, public policy, or a related field. The position will be based
      in Arlington, VA. The intern(s) will be expected to have flexible
      schedules as there will be points in which it will be necessary for the
      team to work based on other time zones. Candidates should be comfortable
      with communicating by telephone in a professional environment.

      Internship(s) will be paid, full-time temporary positions.

      For consideration, submit resume, writing sample (preferably on the topic
      of the green economy or related to economic or workforce development
      issues), and three references to Ron Kelly (mailto:rkelly@...">
      rkelly@...) by Friday, April 10.
