Boston Internship Alert: Nelson\Nygaard Consulting Associates

Boston Office Intern Job Listing

Nelson\Nygaard Consulting Associates is seeking a highly organized, independent, and motivated intern for its Boston office to support the firm’s practice across multiple sectors with a focus on paratransit and transit work.  Nelson\Nygaard’s practice emphasizes creative and innovative transportation planning and community involvement, often within a wider set of goals such as economic development and reduced dependence on the private automobile. Accordingly, a strong interest and some background in developing sustainable strategies to improve community accessibility and mobility is a must.

Responsibilities

Intern responsibilities will depend on specific needs of projects that are being undertaken but will likely include research, data collection, spreadsheet analysis, mapping, editing reports, support/field work, and potentially some minor business development tasks. Though much of the work will come from projects in New England and the East Coast, there may be opportunities for the candidate to contribute to Nelson\Nygaard projects across the United States. Though travel is not anticipated for this position, candidates must be willing to travel if the need should arise and must have a valid Driver’s License.

Qualifications

The ideal candidate would be someone who has a BSc/MSC/BA in a related field and is interested in gaining experience in paratransit/transit planning. Above all, we are looking for someone who has a passion for sustainable transportation planning, and is interested in making communities better for our clients and their constituents.

Potential candidates must be able to demonstrate excellent skills in writing, data analysis, oral presentation and problem solving. The candidate must be able to demonstrate basic proficiency with Microsoft Excel, Word, and PowerPoint. Additional experience with GIS, graphics (InDesign, Illustrator, SketchUp), or database analysis will be considered favorably. Potential candidates may be asked to demonstrate their writing and oral presentation skills. The ideal start date for this position is September 2014.

About This Position

This paid internship provides an opportunity to join Nelson\Nygaard for up to 12 months at 20-40 hours per week. The number of hours per week is dependent on your schedule. The intern will work across all Nelson\Nygaard sectors with a focus on:
