National Park Service/NCPE Internship Program
Interior Region 1’s Cultural Resources (CR) Division supports parks and programs across the region – from Maine to Virginia – to manage cultural resources according to law and policy and preserve and promote cultural resources which reflect our diverse national heritage. The selected intern will primarily provide assistance in the development of a regional SharePoint site for the CR Division. The intern will work alongside three CR professionals from the CR Division to develop the structure of the site and determine best methods of information storage and delivery. Pulling from existing survey responses and building on developed site plans, the intern will use knowledge of SharePoint, information management, and UI/UX design to develop a site that best serves the needs of regional CR staff. Preexisting SharePoint knowledge is helpful, but there will be ample training materials and opportunities to learn on the job. The intern will work with a team to upload and link appropriate materials and produce a useful, user-friendly, professional, and engaging site. They will serve as the primary point of contact for trial users and incorporate feedback and suggestions through the official launch of the site.
Additional responsibilities may include presenting to Division staff about how best to use the new CR site, documenting their site-building process, and assisting the division in the development of guidance materials.
Training will be provided in SharePoint site building, information management and delivery, and digital cultural resource preservation trends and standards. Learning opportunities will be provided for the intern to become familiar with the operations of the Division and the functional needs of CR professionals in the National Park Service. The intern will have the opportunity to work with each of the region’s CR programs, be introduced to a wide array of cultural resource professionals, and gain insight into the many varied aspects of the regional office’s initiatives, upcoming projects, and daily work.
This position is entirely remote. The selected intern will work with supervising staff to design a flexible work schedule that accommodates existing responsibilities. The selected intern will be provided a government-issued laptop and personal identity verification (PIV) card. Up to 800 hours (20 weeks at full-time) are available for the right candidate.
This position is offered by the National Council for Preservation Education (NCPE) in cooperation with the National Park Service. To be eligible you must be a current college-level student or recent graduate (within the past 12 months) in the cultural resources or allied fields; show academic promise; and a U.S. citizen.
