While Corr Analytics is based in New York City, we have intern opportunities on multiple continents. Corr Analytics focuses on the education and training of our interns, who are under close supervision of our existing staff. The internship experience is not for the benefit of Corr Analytics, but rather, is customized for the benefit and career aspirations of the individual intern. Interns join the Corr Analytics training program with the full understanding that it is an unpaid position, cannot exceed 35 hours per week, expenses are not reimbursed unless pre-authorized, no liability is accepted for intern actions or risks, and no promise of paid employment is made prior, during, or after the program. Interns are not provided with company benefits, such as vacation time, sick time, health benefits, paid holidays, and unemployment compensation. Depending on intern needs, interns may be eligible for Corr Analytics email addresses, business cards, and press passes for the duration of the internship. Interns are required to provide 1) a letter of concurrence from their academic advisors (if they are students, otherwise a statement of educational and training goals), and 2) weekly Friday updates that include number of hours devoted to the internship, as well as educational and training goals achieved.
