On-the-Job Training: The Chrysler Museum Summer Internship Program

–Emily Shield, Public Programs Coordinator

Each summer, the Chrysler Museum welcomes motivated and enthusiastic college students behind the scenes to gain valuable experience in the museum field. Interns work within a specific department in order to delve deeply into specific projects. Additionally, they have opportunities to meet staff across the Museum to learn about other careers and have weekly meetings to discuss issues facing the field. With gracious help from our colleagues, the interns were treated to field trips to the Hermitage Museum and Gardens and Virginia MOCA to learn about other local institutions.

This year, we saw the most competitive selection process yet, and it resulted in a cohort of exceptional future colleagues. After over a year of disruptions to their academic and professional development, this group exhibited diligence, creativity, and professionalism. For the first time this summer, all Chrysler Museum interns received a stipend in recognition of their efforts.

Interns spent ten weeks at the Chrysler and accomplished a tremendous amount in that short time. Interns take on responsibilities of active team members of the Museum. They participate in core team meetings in preparation for upcoming exhibitions, meet with community partners, and take ownership of unique projects. Learn more about their experiences and contributions to the Chrysler Museum.
