Internship Program


 

AsiaRenewables’ internship program serves as a term break program for students and as the main selection process for full time staff. All of our staff have experienced internships, either at AsiaRenewables or elsewhere, we consider the internship experience to be an essential component of our enterprise and its continuing success.


The AsiaRenewables Internship Program provides a unique opportunity for interested students to develop practical and in-depth experience into the climate change and renewable energy industry sectors, especially in emerging markets. The internship program offers hands-on, challenging and fast-paced work environment where Interns can expect levels of responsibility, working hours and workload similar to full-time staff as well as travel opportunities within the region, should the opportunity arise. Past team interns have been involved in projects ranging biomass in Indonesia to landfill gas in China to presenting at academic seminars in Beijing and Singapore. Interns are involved in all aspects of project development, including drafting documents and financial modeling, assessing project viability, working with project stakeholders and government officials, and participating in negotiations. We empower and challenge our people to exceed their own expectations and develop practical management skills and a sound commercial mindset. The internship demands an exceptionally high degree of commitment of time and efforts and frankly, is not for everyone. However, those who have successfully completed it gain not only well-regarded recognition in the industry markets as a “graduate” of our program but also an unparalleled insight into a significant and timely sector.

 

School Credit: 
If your institution provides for earning credits through internships, we can assist in such arrangements as some of our past interns have received such study credits from their universities.

Conditions:

Although term periods are flexible, we generally recommend a period of 3 months as longer periods allow more substantial involvement in on-going projects. Upon the conclusion of the internship, consideration may be given for full-time employment subjects to the needs of the company. While the internship itself has no remuneration, there is a nominal stipend to cover for some basic expenses. Students must make their own travel and housing arrangements.

 

 

Application:
We invite interested candidates to submit their resumes and a cover letter briefly explaining why they believe the internship would be a mutually positive one. Please direct applications to recruit@asiarenewables.org. Short-listed candidates will be notified.
