Each semester, a select group of students - both graduate and undergraduate - from local colleges and universities are chosen to participate in our internship program and work exclusively with Eduventures employees in our downtown Boston office. Intern positions are available in departments across the organization, including Research & Consulting and Marketing & Event Planning. We make every effort to place students in the program most aligned with their majors and interests.
Research & Consulting Internship
"In my time at Eduventures, I had the opportunity to work with several analysts on projects involving market research on behalf of clients seeking to expand their business in the education marketplace. The research staff at Eduventures was knowledgeable, supportive, and went out of their way to include me in planning sessions and teleconferences with clients. If you are interested in education and e-learning but are not quite sure what specific part of the market you'd like to work in, having access to Eduventures' analysts and their research products and archives provides invaluable exposure to the key trends and players. Also, I'm a graduate student and have had several internships and jobs since graduating several years ago. The internship program at Eduventures provided me with more orientation and support than I received at any other organization - including for salaried positions!"
Interns work closely with an Eduventures Mentor - a Research Analyst or Senior Analyst - on current projects for a wide variety of education clients.
