The President's Council on Jobs and Competitiveness is an independent advisory board to the President established in 2010 as a successor to the President's Economic Recovery Advisory Board (PERAB). Chaired by GE CEO Jeff Immelt (Dartmouth Class of 1978), the Jobs Council is composed of leaders in business and academia, and its mission is to suggest objective, non-partisan solutions for improving the economy, creating jobs in America, and improving the competitiveness of the American workforce.
Interns with the Jobs Council will have an opportunity to work with business leaders and members of the administration on efforts to create jobs and strengthen the competitiveness of the US economy. The Jobs Council serves as a liaison among the private sector, labor, academia and government organizations including the White House and the Treasury. Interns will be expected to complete a variety of tasks, including attending meetings, writing policy memos, scheduling and planning events, and conducting policy research. Jobs Council interns are given considerable responsibility, and projects will involve both teamwork and independent assignments.
Please send a personal statement and resume by email if you are interested in pursuing an internship with the Jobs Council.
