We offer internships to qualified college students, recent graduates, and individuals making a career change or returning to the workforce. OMSI internships are unpaid, but the experience is well worth your time. You are placed with enthusiastic mentors, who help you develop future job skills and discover the inner workings of a major museum.
Apply for a posted internship or propose an internship
You can apply for an internship that we have posted, or you may be able to "propose” an internship. Send a letter of interest describing your goals for an internship, your desired time commitment and a proposed schedule, along with your resume and internship application. If your skills and experience would benefit OMSI, and we have the staff to guide you, we will contact you.
