Joseph Smith Papers
Project and Church Historic Sites Internships
Winter 2017 internships
at the Church History Library!
If you are interested
in applying for one of our internships spots with the Joseph Smith Papers
Project or the Historic Sites Division, you can submit your cover letter and resume today for Winter 2017. All majors are
welcome to apply.
To apply, please
submit a copy of your resume and cover letter to Maren Kirwan at firstname.lastname@example.org by December 1st at noon. Please use this sample resume as a resource if
you need guidance on how to format your resume or what to include. Please be
sure to include details of your work experience, skills, and experience,
especially as they relate to the job description of this internship. Usually
interviews are held in the History Department's main office but this semester
interviews will be conducted on the phone.
IMPORTANT: This internship
requires a time commitment of 7-10 hours per week over the course of Winter 2017 semester.
It is preferred that students devote one full day to
the internship (for example working from 8-5 pm every Tuesday) rather than
splitting it up between multiple days since it does require that you commute to
Salt Lake City. If you apply, it is expected that you will have room in your
schedule to accommodate these hours. Please indicate in your cover letter what
day you plan on working. You will also be expected to register for 3.0 credits
of History 199R. DO NOT APPLY IF YOU CANNOT ACCOMMODATE THIS
