The Show-Me Institute is pleased to offer internship opportunities for the Summer of 2013.
- Internships are open to current undergraduate and graduate students, as well as recent graduates.
- Summer internships will last approximately three months. The exact starting and ending dates are flexible, but each intern is expected to work at least 10 weeks. No internship shall start prior to May 28.
- Summer interns will work a full-time schedule (9 a.m.-5 p.m.) with one hour for lunch. Attendance at the Institute’s book club once a month is encouraged.
- Interns will be involved in virtually all aspects of the Institute’s operations. Interns will work closely with senior staff on a wide variety of projects. They can expect greater responsibility and personal attention than they would receive at larger organizations.
- Interns will assist staff members with a variety of tasks. These may include researching public policy topics, organizing events, and writing and editing opeds, newsletters, studies, and other documents. Some administrative and clerical tasks will also be required.
- Policy internships as well as communications and development internships are available.
- A Show-Me Institute internship is an excellent opportunity to improve your research and writing skills. Each intern will produce regular blog posts and an oped on a public policy topic of interest to him or her. Each intern will receive feedback and assistance from SMI staff members throughout the process.
- All internships are at the Show-Me Institute’s offices in Saint Louis, Mo.
- Interns will be paid on an hourly basis.
Those wishing to be considered for an internship should submit the internship application and the requested supporting materials. The deadline for consideration is April 26, 2013. Applicants can expect a decision no later than mid-May.
