Attention college students or those who are about to graduate! The Sierra Club is once again looking for candidates to fill their Best Internship on Earth position, which is always a highly coveted gig. Over the past couple of years, the intern has spent ten weeks of their summer traveling across the U.S., taking part in all kinds of adventurous activities and serving as part of the Sierra Club’s advocacy program, helping spread the word about the importance of protecting our favorite outdoor places. Those interns would write blog posts and create videos about their activities, sharing all of the cool things they were doing and generally making the rest of us feel jealous about not getting the internship ourselves. This year, that tradition will continue, although this time there are two internships up for grabs.
The 2013 interns will work in tandem with one another as they once again hit the road for the Sierra Club. They’ll be creating even more multimedia productions as they shoot, edit and share video of their adventures. Along the way they’ll pick up valuable skills, develop communications techniques and work closely with the Club’s staff on a number of projects.
To be eligible for the Best Internship on Earth you must be at least 18 years old by May 15 and be a U.S. citizen, permanent resident, or legal resident with a work permit. The internship begins in June and runs into August. Both interns will receive compensation for their work, will have all of their travel expenses paid and will receive $1000 worth of gear from The North Face to keep them outfitted for the road.
For more information visit the Best Internship on Earth webpage. To apply for the position, simply fill out this form online. Applications are due by April 9, so hurry! This is a great opportunity and I would have personally loved to have done something like this while I was in college.
