The Internship
If you’re looking for an internship with a global company that operates with the mentality and speed of a small start-up, yet has the resources of a worldwide organization, then this could be a great opportunity for you. You’ll gain skills in corporate communication and PR, employee recruitment & development, marketing strategy, event planning and database analysis. You’ll work with a team of people who are passionate about recruiting great talent, creating engaging events, and establishing effective communication and PR strategies that help with the continued growth of our worldwide business. 

EF Education First – a leading international education company specializing in educational travel, academics, language learning, and cultural exchange – is looking for a rock star intern to work cross-functionality from our new North American headquarters (with its breathtaking 360-degree views of greater Boston) to support our recruitment, events, and communications teams.  Every day will be different and fun – from working with our PR Director to carry-out an exciting schedule of activities for EFers (including our summer movie series in North Point Park), to helping our recruiters prepare for and staff on-campus events, to learning about the brand strategies that drive our internal and external communications campaigns and support key business goals.

We believe that creating learning opportunities for our interns is as important as the work you will do on our behalf.  As part of your time at EF, we will help you network with and learn from some of the most interesting people working in our 15 divisions.  And because EF is a large company with a small company feel – you will have the chance to accept great responsibility quickly and see the impact of your work in real time. 

 At EF, we work hard but we also like to have a lot of fun – and there’s no better way to cap-off a day at the office than by joining your new colleagues and friends at our on-site restaurant Lingo, enjoying an appetizer and beverage from the banks of the Charles River, and watching the Duck Boats go by.       

Key Responsibilities:

  • Provide general support to the recruitment, development and PR teams
  • Assist with the planning and execution of recruiting events and employee engagement events
  • Help create internal and external marketing campaigns
  • Using existing data, research, analyze and present trends in employee development

  • Resourceful and eager 
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills
  • Proficient MS Office skills (Word, Excel, Outlook and PowerPoint)
  • Experience with event planning is a PLUS
