Prospective interns must be students currently enrolled in a degree program, and, if selected, must submit one of the following on or before the first day of the internship: 1) documentation showing that academic credit is being received (i.e. a copy of the course registration), or 2) a letter from a professor, department head, or academic advisor stating that the internship significantly contributes to the student’s current degree program, or 3) a letter from the school stating that the internship is part of a work-study or independent study program. Hours per week: 16 hours maximum, unpaid, with flexible scheduling. Interested candidates should email Jason Samenow, Weather Editor, at firstname.lastname@example.org and attach resume.
