There are currently no job openings at CAM.
Summer 2014 internships have been filled.
CAM offers hands-on internships for recent high school graduates, college students, and graduate students. As a non-collecting institution, CAM presents numerous exhibitions each year in the fall, spring, and summer, featuring national and international artists from various cultural backgrounds who work across different media and presentational formats. As St. Louis’s premier museum dedicated to contemporary art, CAM offers a variety of unique opportunities for prospective interns in the following areas: Curatorial, Development, Education, Interpretation, PR & Marketing, Registrar, and Visitor Services.
Each internship is designed to challenge the candidate in his/her particular area(s) of interest through dedicated research and practice. Interns also lend support to the daily needs and greater goals of the organization. Participation in this program is on a volunteer basis, and great attention is paid to ensure a high quality experience for all interns. Each participant receives one-on-one mentoring, unrivaled access to the greater arts community, and preparation for the next step in their professional development.
Intern candidates must possess excellent oral and written communications skills, the ability to work on Mac and PC platforms with standard office applications/programs, familiarity with the area(s) to which they apply, and the necessary temperament to work cooperatively with other team members in a creative, fast-paced environment.
The program generally follows CAM’s exhibition schedule, while the exact terms are considered case-by-case and determined by the intern, her or his supervisor, and the program manager. For those seeking academic credit, the necessary documents must be supplied prior to the start of the internship term. All internships are a minimum of fifteen hours per week and interns must be available for at least three evening or weekend events during their term.
As neighboring arts institutions, CAM and the Pulitzer Foundation for the Arts offer combined opportunities for their respective interns to interact with one another and museum professionals across both campuses. Group visits, workshops, and collaborations with other innovative, local, nonprofit, and/or community-oriented entities are vital components of this unique portion of the CAM internship.
