Internships at CAM and the Pulitzer
The Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis and the Pulitzer Foundation for the Arts offer hands-on internships for recent high school graduates, college students, and graduate students. Each of the two non-profit arts institutions offers its own unique array of opportunities to which prospective interns may apply. Together, the two neighboring institutions present diverse opportunities, as well as a concrete platform for professional development in an established inter-institutional network.
Each internship is designed to challenge the candidate in his/her particular area(s) of interest through dedicated research and practice. Interns will also lend support to the daily needs and greater goals of the organization. They will be assigned to a particular project or to a specific area at one institution, but all will have opportunities to interact with museum professionals across both campuses. Organized group visits, workshops, and collaborations with other innovative, local, nonprofit, and/or community-oriented entities are an especially vital component of this unique joint-program.
Participation in this program is on a volunteer-basis, and great attention is paid to ensure a high quality experience for all interns as well as both institutions. 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, dynamic, and fast-paced environment.
The program generally follows the university semester schedule, while the exact terms are considered case-by-case and determined by the intern, her or his supervisor, and the program managers. 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 12 hours per week, for 10 weeks, and interns must be available for at least three evening or weekend events during their term. (CAM requires at least 15 hours per week, excluding the three required events.)
Applications are due January 3, 2014. All applicants must submit a current resume, essay of intent and class and/or work schedule for the semester. Each document may not exceed one page and all should be compiled into one PDF. Please see last page for application details.
