Internships in Glacier
Internships can be a great way to explore an interest in a career in the outdoors or working in a land management agency. These positions can provide a real-world work experience and resume building opportunity.
Current Internship Opportunities
Park Interpreters are the public face of Glacier National Park. Interns in the Division of Interpretation are responsible for researching, preparing and presenting programs like guided walks and hikes, interpretive talks, boat tours, and illustrated programs on the park's interpretive themes (wildlife, geology, ecology, human history, climate change, etc). These programs are given in a diversity of park locations including campgrounds, trails, visitor centers, historic boats, and historic park hotels. Interns staff visitor centers and provide information and informal interpretation to visitors during fixed station and roving assignments. For more details, please view the Interpretation Internships page.
Social Media Internship
Glacier National Park maintains a large social media presence. This internship will allow for the opportunity to interact with employees from all divisions, as they craft social media posts that enhance Glacier's safety and resource management needs. While primarily stationed indoors there will be opportunities to get out in the park and explore the off-season during the winter and spring. The intern will work directly for the park's Interpretive Specialist and work closely with the park's Visual Information Specialist. Visit the Social Media Internship page for further information.
Research Learning Center Internships
The Crown of the Continent Research Learning Center periodically enlists the help of 2 to 3 student interns each summer to assist with various research and education projects. These internships typically run approximately 12 weeks through the summer field season (typically May/June - August/September). Most interns work closely with our Citizen Science Program, but we try to provide interns with a range of experience in other resource management, education, and operational activities when opportunities are available. Some of these activities may include (but would not be limited to) curriculum development, interpretive writing, desktop publishing, data management, and research and monitoring assistance.
