Job Descriptions:
2018 ETS English Language Learning Summer Institute
Thank you for your interest in an internship with the English Language Learning (ELL) Summer Institute. Approximately 35 interns will be hired for this program for the summer of 2018.
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:
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
Required Experience:
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, professors and professional writers. 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. If you do not currently have U.S. work authorization, please note:
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.
