for guidance on formatting and the information to include. Please include details of your work experience, skills, and competencies, especially as they relate to the job description of this internship.
IMPORTANT: This internship requires a time commitment of 7-10 hours per week over the course of Spring/Summer semester. It is preferred that students devote one full day to the internship (for example working from 8-5 pm every Tuesday) 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 be expected to register for 3.0 credits of History 199R. DO NOT APPLY IF YOU CANNOT ACCOMMODATE THIS SCHEDULE.
