ACORE is proud to be named by The NonProfit Times as one of the best nonprofits to work for in 2023. Learn more about our open positions and how you can be part of the ACORE team.
ACORE President and CEO Gregory Wetstone announced in January that he will be stepping back from his role in 2023. The ACORE Board of Directors is currently managing a search for the organization’s next leader. For additional details and to submit a cover letter and resume, please email ACORECEO@heidrick.com.
Internship applications are welcome from students and recent graduates who are committed to making renewable energy the focus of their career paths. All ACORE internships are paid.
Intern program participants engage in research, writing, and cross-departmental assistance based on their interests and the organization’s current focus. ACORE interns are also responsible for the development and presentation of an individual research project. This project focuses the intern’s attention and knowledge on a facet of the renewable energy industry, preparing them to seek career opportunities in that area. Interns work on their presentations by researching a topic of their choosing and interviewing members of the renewable energy sector, as well as potential employers, through personal introductions by staff and networking opportunities.
ACORE is committed to social and economic justice as part of the transition to a greener future, and is actively working to cultivate a culture of inclusion and equity within the renewable energy sector. To this end, we have partnered with Ørsted to connect select interns with an industry mentor who will serve as a resource for them during and after the ACORE internship. For more information on the Ørsted mentorship program, please contact Janelle Blackwood at email@example.com.
Please submit a resume and cover letter via the application link. In your cover letter, let us get to know you by explaining what you would like to gain from an ACORE internship, why you want to pursue a career in the renewable energy industry, and what kind of career paths are of interest to you.
