The virtual intern will work with a member of the OES PD team who will provide guidance and answer questions as often as necessary, however limited supervision will be provided and the intern will be encouraged to use their graphic design talents as creatively as they wish. A committed virtual intern will leave this internship with the experience of having worked on the complex challenge of visually communicating science diplomacy.
