Summer 2012 Interns at the Farewell Luncheon

The Jewish Museum's Seasonal Internship Program provides an opportunity to participate in the day-to-day operations of one of New York City's leading museums of art and culture. The Jewish Museum offers fall, spring, and summer internships for undergraduate and graduate students, and beginning professionals. Internships are unpaid and are available in a wide range of museum departments including curatorial affairs, collections and exhibitions, membership, marketing and communications, and development. Our internship program is highly competitive and only a few interns are chosen each year. Acceptance into the internship program is based upon academic achievements, interests, experience, related skills, motivation, and availability. Time commitments are flexible and can range from as little as fourteen hours to thirty-five hours per week depending on availability and the department's needs. The Jewish Museum encourages diversity and welcomes applicants from all backgrounds.
