Alcohol Operations Research Internship Opportunity

July 28, 2022


The Vermont Department of Liquor and Lottery (DLL) seeks a motivated, tech-friendly intern to 
conduct two alcohol operations research projects. The first task is an evaluation of liquor prices 
in states that use a Control State Model vs prices in states that utilize a license model. The goal 
is to prepare this information ahead of next year’s legislative session. Due to the daily 
fluctuation of liquor prices, this portion of the internship should be completed within 
approximately 1 month. The second task is an evaluation of how all other states manage their liquor 
boards and commissions. The goal is to better understand the models by which they establish their 
alcohol beverage commissions (ABCs) and the duties and responsibilities of each group.

This internship is ideal for candidates majoring in Supply Chain Management, Business 
Administration, Business Analytics, or other related fields. Proficiency in Microsoft Word and 
Excel required.

The Department of Liquor and Lottery is located in Barre, VT. Remote, hybrid, and in-person options 
are available.

This position is paid, and our intern will receive a three-part stipend. $1,004 will be awarded 
after 30, 60, and 90 days. Total compensation is $3,012 for the duration of the internship. This 
amount is based on up to 20 hours a week for 12 weeks at Vermont’s minimum wage rate.

Tentative Timeline:
2-hour orientation – August 29th – Explanation of Control vs License models, project expectations, 
and Excel sheet walk-through
