Church History Library Winter 2017 Internships

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

To apply, please submit a copy of your resume and cover letter to Maren Kirwan at 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 SCHEDULE.
