Intern For Cambridge, Sweet Job

Written by Boston Biker on Sep 22

EDIT: This job has been filled. Again this job is no longer available.

Looks like Cambridge *might* be looking to hire an intern for some cool bike related stuff.

For more info contact Stephanie Anderberg ([email protected])

—–

looks like the City of Cambridge is going to receive grant funds to implement a pilot social marketing program similar to the Portland, Oregon program. It’s not official yet, but it looks pretty good.

We plan to use social marketing of transportation options to effect a mode shift among residents in the pilot neighborhood. The program will look at all trips, rather than focusing on just commute trips. We’ll start with the Cambridgeport neighborhood for year 1 of the grant, and there is the possibility of additional grant funds to continue the pilot for a second and third year.

As part of the grant, we’ve asked for funding to hire an intern 22 hours per week – this would include evenings and weekends as much of the social marketing involves outreach and events. If you know anyone interested in transportation and/or social marketing, who might like more information on the internship, please forward this and ask them to contact me directly (email is best). THANKS for your help!!

Stephanie
