We pay you for your internships

We believe that unpaid internships are exploitative. They privilege people who can afford to work for free, and they allow museums to hold all of the power in their relationships with workers.

Internships are an opportunity to explore and try things on for size, to figure out what you like and don’t like and also where you excel. Internships allow you to gain job skills and to build your resumé to position yourself for a career when you graduate.
