Bucknell has a wide variety of majors that are focused on understanding how people interact with the environment, how to minimize damage to the environment, and on how to implement strategies to increase sustainability from an economic, environmental and social perspective.
For this week’s peer picks we’ll be focusing on opportunities related to sustainability.
1 SEDA Council of Governments (SEDA-COG) Energy Resource Center Internship – Apply by Feb. 22
2. Partnership for the Delaware Estuary Habitat Project Specialist – Apply by Feb. 22
SEDA Council of Governments, a regional development agency located in Lewisburg, PA, is looking for an intern in their Energy Resource Center. SEDA-COG focuses on providing energy conservation and renewable energy education, training and technical assistance to local governments, businesses, hospitals, schools and nonprofits. They are looking for a rising senior to intern with them during the summer and to work part-time during the school year.
As an intern with SEDA-COG, you will be applying the knowledge you gained at Bucknell to reduce energy waste and save money for the local municipalities. You will be assisting in providing education and technical assistance to communities undertaking community-wide energy reduction process, providing utility bill analyses, assisting in the development of a region-wide carbon credit program. The internship extends throughout the summer months into your senior year. Having a summer internship and then continuing to work part-time during the school year signals to any potential employee that you are a very dependable person, and the fact that your work impacts such a wide area is a great resume booster.

The second opportunity this week is a job with the Partnership for the Delaware Estuary. The job focuses on a lot more hands-on work. As a Habitat Project Specialist, you’ll assist with the planning, implementation and cultivation of habitat enhancement projects, such as living shorelines, rain gardens, tree plantings and wetland enhancements. You’ll also be providing technical assistance to corporate and community partners to implement and promote habitat and water quality projects using best practices. To me, this sounded like a great mix of job duties: you have field work, some office work and work to support other stakeholders. You will also gradually assume a leadership role within the organization, which gives you an even greater ability to make a difference.
