At the Center, we look at the implications of long-term global and national trends on the Houston region’s economy and, in doing so, work closely with government leaders, community stakeholders and the business community. We are an affiliate of the Greater Houston Partnership, which is the leading economic development organization in Houston and represents most of Houston's Fortune 500 companies.
The internship will involve working with the Center’s CEO on gaining a better understanding of global trends in the energy industry (climate change, energy storage, distributed energy, etc.) and their impact on the Houston economy. In addition, interns will assist Center staff in the creation of a report outlining the economic drivers of health care sector in the Houston region, identifying gaps in health care employers’ needs and detailing how technological advances in the near future will affect patient care.
This position is an opportunity for the intern to learn more about trends in both the energy and health care sectors and how the future of those industries will shape Houston’s economy.
This internship is an unpaid position and involves a minimum commitment of 25 hours a week for seven weeks.
