Work for CET

Washington Post Top Workplace

We are proud that our parent company, Academic Travel Abroad, was selected as a Washington Post Top Workplace in 2016. We’ve been a part of ATA since 1994. That means we know firsthand why this honor is absolutely appropriate and very much deserved.

Benefits for Work-Life Balance

8 weeks of paid Parental Leave (maternity & paternity).
5 weeks of Paid Time Off (to start). Bonuses. Flexible work arrangements. Travel opportunities. When we say we support work-life balance, we mean it.

Supportive Culture

We recruit hard-working, challenge-seeking staff who are committed to education abroad. The culture at CET is fast-paced, but supportive. Need help? Ask a colleague, your manager…or even our CEO. Her door is always open.

Progressive Company

We are an eco-certified organization with ongoing initiatives to diversify staff, promote sustainability, and give back to local communities. Want to work for a company that cares about the world? Look no further.

Excellent Management

No management horror stories here. Managers are open listeners and direct communicators, who aren’t afraid to apologize when they make mistakes. The result? Staff at CET feel trusted, valued and respected.

Position Openings

We accept applications only when position announcements have been posted. Applications should include a résumé and formal cover letter. We typically contact applicants when an application is received and to arrange interviews with short-listed candidates. Given the high volume of email that runs through our office every day, we kindly request that applicants refrain from contacting us to check on the status of their application.

Internships

Interested in launching a career in education abroad? Did you love your own study abroad experience and want to learn about the behind-the-scenes? Consider interning for CET.

We offer paid internships in our Washington, DC office during the fall, spring and summer terms. It is our belief that interns should be provided with structured responsibilities, clear direction, and useful evaluation and feedback. We look to interns to provide insight about today’s students.

If you’re interested, first decide which type of internship is best for you: a Student Services & Programming internship or a Marketing internship. Submit a résumé, formal cover letter, and list of references via email. Be sure to include the type of internship for which you’re applying in the email subject line. Priority application deadlines are:

Fall internships: June 15th
Spring internships: November 1st
Summer internships: March 15th

A CET Career Path

We do everything we can to retain high-performing staff members. And as a fast-growing company, we frequently offer opportunities that allow us to do just that. New programs, initiatives, and positions mean that there are plenty of ways for staff to develop professionally…even across the globe. In fact, many CET staff members have launched their careers in overseas positions and advanced to US-based positions, or vice versa. Other staff have stayed in one location but switched teams as their interests changed. If staff longevity is a test of company success, we think we’ve passed with flying colors.

Affirmative Action Statement

Our company is committed to diversity, and we work hard to maintain a welcoming, non-discriminatory office culture. We welcome qualified applicants of all backgrounds to apply to our openings. It is our policy to provide equal employment opportunities without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability, marital status, veteran status, sexual orientation, genetic information or any other protected characteristic under applicable law.
