Paid summer internship @ history website

The Thomas Jefferson Foundation is redesigning its main website, www.monticello.org, and needs a multimedia intern to assist. The full-time summer internship is based in Philadelphia and pays $3,000-plus. Academic credit is also available.

While this may not seem like the most ideal journalism internship, in this economy it's important to be flexible and consider non-traditional opportunities.

"The intern will play key roles both in facilitating the integration of social content complementing the new site’s curatorial content, and in interpreting this content," the ad states. "This will entail tasks ranging from tagging objects in the collection, interviewing Monticello staff, blogging, creating community profile information, and facilitating dialog with onsite visitors. This is a unique and valuable opportunity for history students to engage first-hand with how social media is used to give a world-class cultural institution a thriving and dynamic participatory online presence."

Applicants should send a cover letter and resume (word or PDF) by Monday, April 19th to internship@whatscookin.com with the subject line: "2010 American History Internship".
