Internships are a great way to start your journey towards your career; join us on campus to discover your path in the not-for-profit or business field. Maybe you are interested in a career directly in the museum sector. If you are interested in a future with not-for-profit work, an internship with RCHS could give you valuable experience in a number of organizations. Perhaps your career goal is in education, events management, IT, marketing, not-for-profit management, journalism, research or history. We can add experience to your portfolio in all these careers.
RCHS internships are designed for current students who are seeking credit. If you would like to work for RCHS and will not be a current student at the time, please visit our volunteer page or contact our Volunteer & Internship Coordinator ([email protected] | 608-756-4509)
Our Interns Speak For Themselves
“RCHS has allowed me to immerse myself in all parts of the museum process in a very hands-on way. I am grateful to have been given the opportunity to work so closely on educational programs.”
“Y’all are dreamers, in the best way.”
“The work culture is friendly but professional-you can have informative business meetings but throw in some jokes. I love that it is progressive and thinking outside the box, and programming for a younger generation.”
“I love that RCHS is looking to involve the community more and is making more [programming] available because of the positive feedback from the community. They are always looking for ways to improve.”
