Internship Application Form 2017
The History Council of NSW (HCNSW) Internship Program provides an opportunity for students enrolled in history or related disciplines at a tertiary level to gain experience working for a history organisation.

The student intern will be given the choice of involvement in two of the HCNSW's main programs: History Week and the Speaker Connect program. The intern will assist in organisation, promotion and implementation of either a History Week event or a Speaker Connect talk. While attending events, interns will be professional representatives of the HCNSW.

Intern duties will include:
• Assisting HCNSW staff in organisation and promotion of their designated event, both online and in person (e.g.
assisting set up of Annual History Lecture, handing out promotional material at Speaker Connect event, etc.)
• Photographing the event for HCNSW website use.
• Writing up a review/summation of the event to be published on the HCNSW website and social media outlets.
• Interviewing/talking with host organisation during and after event in order to gain feedback for the development of
future programs.

All applicants must be studying history or related disciplines at a tertiary institution. Please note that this program is competitive and not all applications will be successful. Applications will be processed as soon as possible.
