Play a Role in the Future of New York's Past
Interns play a significant and valued role at the NYG&B, carrying out challenging tasks that make an important and visible difference. Each year the NYG&B assembles a team of highly capable and industrious individuals, providing each with meaningful work experience. In addition to hands-on experience in a variety of areas throughout the organization, interns also have the opportunity to work on a personal family history research project while also working alongside a member of the NYG&B team.
The NYG&B offers a variety of internship experiences including:
|Digital content development||Social media and marketing|
|Volunteer management||Event management|
|Database management||Digitization and transcription projects|
E-mail a resume and cover letter to [email protected]. Interviews are required and may be conducted by phone or in person. Applications are accepted and reviewed on a rolling basis. Successful candidates must demonstrate attention to detail, good organizational skills, and a comfort with technology.
Internships are generally eight weeks long, pay a $100 weekly stipend, and require a three-day commitment focused on NYG&B assignments and a fourth day spent on a personal genealogical project.
