Department: English Language Learning
Web Address: http://www.ets.org/ell/internship

Type of Work: Assessment Development

Linguistic Field(s): Applied Linguistics

Duration: 10-Jul-2017 to 18-Aug-2017
Paid
Internship Location: Princeton, New Jersey, USA
Minimum Education Level: BA
Special Qualifications: Job Requirements:

The TOEFL iBT test and the TOEIC tests are global measures, so ETS actively seeks candidates who can bring diverse experiences and perspectives to the work. The ELL summer internship workforce includes people from a variety of backgrounds, such as undergraduate students, graduate students, teachers, and professors. Applicants must have completed at least some undergraduate work in order to be considered. 

All interns must have appropriate authorization to work in the United States. Some candidates who receive an internship offer may be able to apply for a CPT or an OPT work authorization visa if enrolled at a U.S. university: check with your university’s international student services office or program coordinator for eligibility before applying to the ELL Summer Institute. CPT visas can usually be acquired quickly, while OPT visas typically take longer. Candidates who receive an internship offer and who need a CPT or an OPT visa should apply for one of these visas immediately upon accepting our offer.

Interns must have a very high degree of fluency in English but do not need to be native speakers. Additionally, interns must have excellent writing skills. The work requires verbal precision and sensitivity to nuance, analytic skill, attention to detail, and receptiveness to instruction. Interns must be able to work well individually and collaboratively, carefully consider constructive feedback, and manage their time effectively to meet targets. 


Description:
Position Overview:

ELL summer interns will produce materials for use on large-scale, high-stakes
standardized tests of English language proficiency. Each intern will work on
one of the following:

- TOEFL iBT® Test

The TOEFL iBT test is taken by nonnative speakers of English who are planning
to apply to a college or university in an English-speaking country.

- TOEIC® Tests

The TOEIC tests are taken principally by people who need to communicate with
both native and nonnative speakers of English in the context of the global
workplace.

The test development work is intellectually challenging and rewarding. The
work may include:

- writing items that test knowledge of grammar, vocabulary, and reading
comprehension
- identifying academic texts which are suitable for testing reading
comprehension
- creating conversations and talks that test listening comprehension
- developing scenarios and prompts that allow candidates to demonstrate their
speaking or writing skills

Program Details:

The six-week program begins on Monday, July 10, and ends on Friday, August 18.
Interns are expected to work 8:30–5:00, Monday through Friday, for the whole
program, and will receive attractive compensation. All work is conducted at
the ETS Rosedale campus in Princeton, New Jersey. Interns must provide or
arrange their own housing and transportation.


Application Deadline: 31-Jan-2017
