The International Civil Rights Center and Museum is in the process of a huge transition and expansion in its attempt to become a UNESCO World Heritage Site that would bring worldwide notoriety to the museum.
While that bold – and expensive – transition is taking place, the museum still needs interns to help out with its daily operations and, recently, the museum put out a call for those who’d like to work at the famous site in the former Woolworth’s building in downtown Greensboro.
The museum announced that its 2022 Summer Internship Program is seeking undergraduate junior and senior students and graduate students to fill the positions.
Museum officials note that the positions are paid, but housing for the summer isn’t provided.
The deadline for applications is Wednesday, May 18.
The call for interns states that this is a great opportunity for a student “to learn and apply best professional practices of museum education and interpretation.” And it noted that the interns will be working under the supervision of the Museum’s special events coordinator and will also “lead and participate in the development and implementation of innovative and engaging exhibits and programming.”
In addition, those selected will help with new educational initiatives and community outreach. The work will include a mix of community engagement and behind-the-scenes jobs.
Any college juniors and seniors who’d like to spend their summer this way should submit the following to email@example.com: a resume that details their work and educational experiences and provides contact information for two references, either from work or school.
Applicants will also need to provide an academic transcript and a cover letter explaining why they want the job and how their time there would benefit the museum.
