Typical roles for environmental internships in Hong Kong

Here are a few examples of roles that our environmental science interns in Hong Kong have taken on before:

  • Environmental Policy

    Environmental policy in the world’s leading economies is one of the most important roles aspiring scientists can take on today. Interns gain experience in advocacy work and the politics behind protecting the environment, honing public relations and communications skills. Success in these roles also requires a strong understanding of diverse scientific concepts, as well as what goes into creating and changing laws.

  • Research

    Research is one of the most foundational elements of internships in environmental science in Melbourne. Depending on the company or organization an intern is placed with, they may take on tasks including data analysis, case study and white paper review, and competitive analysis. Research experience is key for success in the scientific community, and ensures that young scientists have a strong base when it comes to environmental best practices and emerging technologies.

  • Fundraising

    Whether you’re placed with a biotech startup focused on new ways of creating clean energy, or an environmental nonprofit, fundraising is what helps keep the lights on. Of course, fundraising efforts are also a great way to raise awareness and reach an expanded audience. Interns may help design and manage fundraising efforts, apply for private and federal funding, and learn budget-writing best practices.

  • Copywriting

    Just as in any other field, writing skills are both necessary and valuable for scientists. An internship is the perfect opportunity to hone your scientific writing skills and learn how to write accurate and accessible information about the environmental field. Interns take on roles of drafting reports and newsletters, ghostwriting articles, writing press releases, and even research papers.
