Skills

 

YOU LOVE EXCEL

You enjoy cleaning, reconciling, entering, sorting and updating spreadsheets.  You find joy in things like macros and VLookups. Basically, you enjoy any and all things related to spreadsheets.

YOU’RE EXTREMELY DETAIL-ORIENTED

You live in the details. You believe good is the enemy of great, not the other way around. You can find the smallest of errors in Excel formulas, in data entry, everywhere.

YOU’RE FLEXIBLE, A QUICK RESPONDER 

The problem we’re trying to solve as an organization is dynamic and each day brings fresh and exciting challenges. You like special projects and learning new things. You can react quickly and efficiently when called upon to change or pivot. 


YOU’RE NOT ONLY DRIVEN — YOU CAN DRIVE YOUR OWN BOAT

You are committed to solving the world water crisis and are aware that keeping track of thousands of water projects takes a lot of hard work. You welcome the challenge. You are a self-starter and take initiative on any projects assigned. You are not afraid to admit mistakes and you fix what you can right away.

YOU HAVE EXPERIENCE AND EDUCATION TO BACK YOU UP

You’re an undergraduate student. You also have previous data cleaning and analysis work under your belt. You know how best to use Excel, put together concise documents and use online tools to manage large datasets. Strong data management and analysis skills – pivot tables, VLookups, macros – a must!

Commitment

You’ll start in late-January and commit to at least 3 months at the charity: water office. We’ll need you for 20 hours a week and in the office at least three days a week.

Compensation

This is an unpaid internship – but is an exceptional opportunity to gain experience at an international non-profit with an ambitious mission. We will gladly work with your institution to give you academic credit for your experience.
