Research Assistance in White Paper Development on the Future of Work

Internship Program Synopsis

Elatia is interested in delving into research on the Future of Work as it pertains to education and technology. Elatia spent seven weeks interviewing contacts throughout her LinkedIn network about the current moment, industry challenges and opportunities, and advice and predictions for the next 18-24 months. Elatia has particularly focused on how networking, connection, and community might change as a result of the pandemic.

If you are selected for this internship, you will help Elatia conclude the data collection process and focus your remaining time on synthesizing the results and doing background research into resilience, mental adaptability, and community in a digital world in order to draft a white paper highlighting how people are preparing for the future.

We are looking for one virtual intern, graduate or advanced undergrad, from any school. There are no requirements on major… you must be focused, detail oriented, and must have research, data collection, and data synthesis experience. It is a plus if you can create basic infographics and other visual graphics for social media.

Types of questions you’re asking:

  1. How are we connected?
  2. What’s going on in your world right now? (professional or personal)
  3. What’s the biggest opportunity?
  4. What’s the biggest challenge?
  5. In 18-24 months, what advice would you share with someone else who’s also planning for the future?

The end deliverable will be either a White Paper or Case Study based on the data that’s been collected.
