Posted 2 weeks ago

Overview

Archer Western a member of The Walsh Group is currently seeking Co-ops for our Southeast Heavy Civil and Water Divisions

Are you someone who thrives on managing school work and solving problems? Are you excited about working for a family company where, when you push yourself, you will be recognized? For Walsh Co-ops, a good day is getting everything done on their to-do lists or helping to solve a pesky problem. A great day, is when they get to do both.

Walsh Co-ops are easy to follow because they speak with precision, order and efficiency. They get things done because they plan their work and then work their plan. Are you a student that puts the same amount of care into managing relationships as you do into managing your course load? If so, we might have something for you.

As a fourth generation family owned business, Walsh recruits students that will take ownership for ensuring things are handled right. Are you someone who likes to say "yes" to taking on more? Are you someone who gets things started without being asked?

If this sounds like you, then we want to hear from you. If you have what it takes, welcome to the family.

Summer 2020 Future Of Property Rights Program Intern( Paid)

New America Foundation

Posted 3 days ago

VIEW JOBS 2/14/2020 12:00:00 AM 2020-05-14T00:00 The Future of Property Rights (FPR) Program seeks applicants who have a strong interest in property and housing rights for our summer 2020 paid program internship. More than a million Americans are forcibly displaced from their homes each year because of eviction, mortgage foreclosure, eminent domain, and other factors. Not only that: a recent study found that almost 50 million people across the country say it is likely that they will be forcibly displaced from their homes in the next five years. This displacement can splinter communities and limit access to jobs, education, transportation, and childcare. It can cause physical and mental trauma, particularly for children. And yet, we know very little about the mechanisms of loss, who is most at risk, where, and what happens to individuals and families after they are displaced. What is more: this challenge, which compounds socioeconomic inequality and prevents community resilience, has not made its way cohesively into public American discourse. The Future of Property Rights Program at New America seeks to analyze and visualize the problem of U.S. housing instability and property loss, to tell the stories of the people who experience it, and to surface policy solutions. The program intern will assist the FPR team with research and writing (e.g., articles for the press, as well as policy papers), analysis of laws and policies, event support, and general administrative duties. The ideal candidate is a self-starter, with excellent writing and research skills, has the ability to work quickly and multi-task, has experience in either law, policy, or tech, and possesses some prior understanding of land and property rights issues. Responsibilities: * Work 40 hours a week in our downtown D.C. office * Help the FPR team produce reports, op-eds, issue papers, and blog posts * Conduct research on property rights and housing instability-related topics * Provide support to FPR events and presentations * General administrative duties as needed Job Qualifications Requirements: * Excellent writing and research skills * Demonstrated experience in law, policy, tech, or a related field * Intellectual curiosity, motivation, and a desire to learn on the job * Self-starter who can work quickly and multi-task * Strong attention to detail * Excellent organizational skills and time management Education Requirements: A recent graduate or a current graduate student with a major relevant to FPR, including Law, Economics, Business, Political Science, Information Technology, Geographic Information Systems (GIS), and Urban Planning.
