WiserEarth
September 12, 2013

I joined the WiserEarth team in the summer to do an internship focused on development and donor relations. I was looking for an opportunity to get more involved in writing and to learn how a non-profit operates. And I definitely got to experience both of these aspects in a short time. From the internship orientation, structure, management, and objectives, I definitely feel like the work I do contributes to the organization.

My experience has been absolutely wonderful. The staff is extremely welcoming and friendly. It's a very positive work environment. I also have been able to work directly on grant proposals. All of the projects I have been working on have been very hands-on and have helped me career wise.

The team is international but the office is based in San Francisco and very conveniently located close to the ferry building and BART/Muni Embarcadero stops.

I would strongly recommend anyone who would like to gain more experience in the non-profit sector-- to apply for an internship here. Your time will be valued and appreciated and you'll get to work with great people. And you'll garner great experience in the field.
