The BW NICE Internship Program
Why an internship with BW NICE is an investment in your future:
- Gain real-world experience in a non-profit organization.
- Networking opportunities at BW NICE meetings open doors to professionals with a wide variety of business experiences, resources, and references.
- Build your resume with strong skills and work experiences. Employers are likely to hire someone with internship and work experience rather than someone with a generic resume, lacking experience.
- You will find opportunities to give back and support local charities through BW NICE annual fundraising events.
The following description is a generic overview and gives a feel for what is expected of a BW NICE intern. Specific jobs, when available, will be posted at your school and also listed below by chapter and semester.
The intern will report to the BW NICE chapter president. Internships generally involve a combination of on-site meetings and virtual meetings. The intern will serve on the executive leadership committee at a local chapter and learn the operations of a non-profit board.
