Interns perform desk research, various administrative tasks, draft reports, and proofread texts. Research interns read and analyze reports published by the U.S. Department of State, the U.S. Department of Labor, and the International Labour Organization (ILO) and become familiar with the work of these entities as well as the work of many different stakeholders. Interns also support the organization's work with brands and large-scale federally-funded research projects by conducting desk research on and analyzing supply chains, sectors, and commodities.
