Paid Internship: Metropolitan Council 2016 Internships


This is from Career Services at Minneapolis Community & Technical College:

The Metropolitan Council is hiring interns and this is a great opportunity for students to gain some valuable experience in their field. I have attached the flyer with the general information about the internship which highlights a general overview of the posting deadlines, wages, and information relevant to the 2016 Internship Program and the second attachment contains a list of more than 75 internship positions, and the Majors or Fields of Study relevant to each position.
 

I would be happy to help students with their resume, cover letter, and interviewing skills. Students can stop by Career Services in T2500 to make an appointment or drop in during walk-in hours from noon-3 Monday-Thursday.

LIBT 2900 Internship and Graduates News

LIT Program Student, Zach Garr, has been having a successful internship experience at the Anoka County Historical Society this semester. He was also featured in their Nov/Dec newsletter! Learn more by visiting their website, and facebook page!

We are very excited for Zach as he prepares to graduate from the LIT program. He is currently considering the History program at Metro State (which LIT has an articulation agreement with!).

Another LIT program graduate has secured a paid position in a school library, and has been offered additional paid work for a local historical society library/archive if the grant funding comes through for the project proposal.

We are so excited for our LIT graduates and their great accomplishments. Congratulations!
