Internship

NOT CURRENTLY ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS. 

Want to gain valuable museum/public history experience while learning about D.C.-area Jewish history and contributing to a small organization?

Read about the experiences of former interns on our blog.

Our main intern work is in the areas of research/archival collections, programs/education, and outreach/marketing/development. Interns may also help with exhibitions, publications, and website/social media. Since we have a small staff, there's a good chance you will be dabbling in all of the above fields during the course of your internship!

Interested? To apply, please send the internship application, along with your resume, a cover letter (no more than one page) detailing your interest in this internship and how it fits your goals, and a writing sample to info@jhsgw.org.

The writing sample can be whatever you would like. We've received academic papers, exhibition texts, archival finding aids, or other sorts of materials composed for classes, internships, or jobs. Anything is fine as long as it gives us a chance to see how you write.

The internship is unpaid. Number of hours per week is flexible; schedule will be during normal business hours (9 a.m.-5 p.m., Monday-Thursday). Schedule must be consistent from week to week.

Any questions? Email info@jhsgw.org or call (202) 789-0900.
