Florida PIRG seeks interns for spring

SPRING 2021 INTERNSHIPS FOR AN 100% RENEWABLE ENERGY CAMPAIGN 

In the months leading up to the 2020 election, hundreds of student volunteers with Florida PIRG Students reached out to their peers on college campuses across the state to register them to vote and turn them out on Election Day. Now, we’re working on a campaign to tackle the biggest issue of our time – climate change.

We’ve been talking about the effects of climate change for decades, but now we’re really experiencing them, especially in Florida where our coastlines and natural habitats are in increasing danger. We know, more than any other generation, that we need to transition away from fossil fuels and repower our communities with clean, safe, renewable energy like wind and solar. Our future depends on it, and that’s why we’re calling on our campuses to commit to 100% renewable energy by 2050.

Interns will: 

· Gain firsthand experience into the environmental and campaigning process 

· Sharpen your communication skills by working with the media 

· Learn to develop and run an effective campaign to influence decision-makers 

· Gain experience recruiting and working with volunteers  

· Learn to build a coalition and work with coalition partners 

· Work remotely while making an impact 

We are working hard on college campuses across the state to defend our future and make our communities more sustainable, especially in the wake of ongoing changes and barriers caused by COVID-19. Want to join? Fill out an application and an organizer will be in touch with you shortly!

Moffitt Cancer Center Innovation Office needs an intern – 1-year commitment

Business of Biotech Conference

The conference is held each year at Moffitt with 500 people registered (375 attendees).  The conference has a networking reception and leadership dinner the evening before the conference.  The conference day events are a private breakfast for leadership and local leaders, a keynote address- with a well-known research person interviewed by a recognized interviewer (past three years Sam Donaldson).  Breakfast and lunch are provided and there are 3 or 4 educational sessions held.  The intern’s main responsibility is the conference planning and execution.

  • Before monthly/bi-monthly planning council meetings:
    • Compose the agenda (ask Katherine for items to include)
    • Edit the task list
      • Check the Excel spreadsheet titled “Planning Council Committees and Responsibilities-Task Sheets” to see if there are any tasks that need to be added based on the number of months until BOB (FYI, there is a new version in the BOB2018 file and an older one elsewhere)
      • Check in with people via email about their assigned tasks for the upcoming meeting, adjust task list as they are completed
      • Tasks are to be grouped by time (Ex. All tasks for January listed before all tasks due in February) and also by assigned person (group Jarett’s tasks together, Patti’s tasks together, etc.)
      • Completed Tasks are to be placed at the end of the task list and colored in light gray and marked COMPLETE by their due date
    • Send an email to everyone on the Business of Biotech email list, reminding them of the upcoming meeting and include all necessary documents (do at least one day before)
  • During meetings:
    • Take note of everyone who is present
    • Take copious notes about concerns, solutions, things that need to be added to the task list, etc.
  • After meetings:
    • Compose updated meeting summary using template of previous year’s meeting summary
    • Update task list with new and completed tasks
    • Send both of these items as attachments on an email to the Business of Biotech email group. In the body of the email, remind them of the date of the next meeting.
  • Conference responsibilities include writing talking points for leadership for networking reception, leadership breakfast, and keynote address introduction, coordinating panelist travel and presentation materials, assisting with marketing materials and branding for the conference.  Help with sponsorship commitments.

Annual Report

  • Writing articles for the annual report- produced in April/May and final copy approved in August.  Assist with design theme selection.

Web maintenance

  • Check these links once per week to make sure the webpages are working properly:
    • www.moffittip.com
      • If it does not, notify Katherine Durkin that web domain is no longer ours
        • Ask if she would like you to notify Desiree Perry, who helped to create the new website (otmc.moffitt.org)

Corporate Meetings

Interns participate in all staff meetings (voluntary), team building exercises, and meetings with other departments as appropriate.

  • Dress business formal for all meetings with external companies (such as Celgene, LION, Rosetta, etc.)
  • Duties may include: preparing and organizing documents, meeting logistics (such as food setup), or guiding visitors to the meeting space. Do not be afraid to introduce yourself, it looks well on Moffitt if you do and are polite; it is also good experience for you. Listen closely during meetings, learn as much as you can.

Agreements

  • Whether it is a Strategic Alliance or a Licensing Agreement, you may be asked to summarize the relationship between Moffitt and the partner or licensee
  • There are templates and guidelines for both situations to guide you as you review the legal documents and emails to gather information.

Composing Documents

  • For all documents, use Trebuchet font for the main heading (Pt. 16 and bold) and Calibri front for the body (Typically 11 for body, while bold and larger for subheadings)
  • Save all updated documents by date (Ex. An article I worked on in December will change from Article-12.13.2014.docx to Article-1.16.2015.docx in January if I update it)
  • All documents being sent to executive level persons (not including Jarett Rieger) should be reduced to fit on one page unless otherwise specified
  • When printing Excel spreadsheets, fit all information from one sheet in the book to one page of print (Each sheet of the Excel book gets one page of print, when possible). Do not sacrifice legibility for this purpose.

Sending Emails

  • When sending emails to individuals you have not met, it is good practice to introduce yourself as the business intern for the Innovation Office or to tell them you are contacting them on behalf of Katherine Durkin, a name that will likely be more familiar to them
  • You represent the Innovation Office when you send emails, so be polite
  • Also, be sure to update both your main Moffitt email signature as well as your Moffitt reply signature

Oceana needs an intern to work remotely

SPRING 2021 Oceana Campaign Intern- (Virtual)  

www.oceana.org  

About Oceana:  
Oceana was established by a group of leading foundations — The Pew Charitable Trusts, Oak Foundation, Marisla Foundation (formerly Homeland Foundation), Sandler Foundation, and the Rockefeller Brothers Fund — after a 1999 study they commissioned discovered that less than 0.5 percent of all resources spent by environmental nonprofit groups in the United States went to ocean advocacy. 

No organization was working exclusively to protect and restore the oceans on a global scale. To fill the gap, our founders created Oceana: an international organization focused solely on oceans, dedicated to achieving measurable change by conducting specific, science-based policy campaigns with fixed deadlines and articulated goals. 

The Ocean Law Project — also initiated by The Pew Charitable Trusts — was absorbed into Oceana in 2001 as Oceana’s legal arm. In 2002, Oceana merged with American Oceans Campaign, founded by actor and environmentalist Ted Danson, to more effectively address our common mission of protecting and restoring the world’s oceans. 

Since its founding, Oceana has won more than 225 victories and protected nearly 4 million square miles of ocean. Find out more about how Oceana is helping to save the oceans victory by victory
