Internship Opportunities


Uncompensated internships are available in the summer only in the Collections Department; school credit may be available through your university. Qualified applicants should have an interest in historic preservation, archival research, education, museum management, development or public relations. The internship is open to both undergraduate and graduate students.

ExxonMobil Community Summer Jobs Program Summer Internship Available
The Heritage Society is seeking candidates for an eight-week paid internship, thanks to the ExxonMobil Community Summer Jobs Program. The intern will work under the supervision of the Executive Director to learn about the overall management of a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. To participate in the program, interns must be enrolled undergraduates who have completed their freshman year and will be returning to college full-time in the fall. Interested applicants may email a cover letter and resume to acollette@heritagesociety.org. Cover letters should state why the applicant is interested in the internship and what he/she expects to gain from the internship experience.  No phone calls, please.
APPLICATIONS CLOSED.

Collections Internships
Interns may be asked to help with one or more of the following projects, and work either independently or in conjunction with the collection staff. Possible projects may include the following.

  • Artifact Preservation. A large number of objects in our collection need to be examined for proper inventory and preservation. 

  • Photographing Objects. Every object needs a clear, detailed photograph in its file for identification purposes. 

  • Inventorying Archives and Photographs. We have a large collection of old photographs and archival materials that need to be examined and organized. 

  • Data Entry. We need help updating our collections database

All tasks need to be approached in a methodical, careful and thorough fashion. Accuracy and care are more important than speed. 

Contact Ginger Berni, Collection Manager, for more information, or send a resume with covering letter detailing your areas of interest.
