The Fall Internship
2012-06-25 23:35:21.000 – Brian Clark, Weather Observer/Education Specialist
Summer just officially started a few days ago, so that means it’s time to think about fall interns! Wait, that doesn’t sound right, does it? Amazingly enough though it is, to a certain extent. Hiring our interns, which change along with the school year schedule, takes quite a bit of advanced planning. Because of that, we start to sort through applications well ahead of the actual start date of any particular season’s interns. In this case, in just a few short weeks, we will start to look at applications for the fall internship and schedule interviews.
The actual deadline to submit applications for the all internship is July 15. The fall internship is a particularly interesting one, perhaps even the most interesting out of any of the internship seasons. I say this because when the chosen candidates start in late August, operations around the mountain are in full summer mode. Then when they finish in mid to late December, the building has been closed for a couple months, the tourists have left, and full winter conditions have (typically) set in. In the end, fall interns are the only ones that get to see all of this.
So, if you’re 18 or older, enjoy weather and/or the sciences, and have an interest in working on Mount Washington for a few months, be sure to submit your application!
