All of Amnicon’s Summer Jobs Can Also Be Summer Internships!

Did you know that any of our summer jobs can be turned into an internship? It’s actually not that hard. We’ll work with you and your advisor to create a one-of-a-kind summer internship. When the internship is designed with you in mind, you know you’ll get the most out of it.

Past interns have majored in Environmental Sciences, Exercise Science, Outdoor Education, Outdoor Recreation Management, Philosophy, and even Criminology. We could easily adapt our summer jobs to create summer internships for students majoring in business management, nonprofit administration, social work, psychology, forestry, graphic design, accounting, marketing, and more. No matter what you major is, if you’re interested in working at Amnicon we can find a way to bring your studies into your job position.

How Does It Work? Summer Internships

Each summer internships is custom built to the intern. Every school has different requirements, and every major has a different focus. Amnicon values being flexible, and we’re willing to do whatever your school requires to create the summer internship position.

Usually it means that we’ll focus a portion of your work responsibilities on the tasks that most closely relate to your major. Are you an accounting major? Work on our Base Team, and we’ll hand off several accounting projects to you. Graphic Design? Help our Director of Outreach design next year’s publications! Social Work? Let’s get you working directly with youth from underprivileged backgrounds as a Wilderness Guide.

In addition to focusing your job responsibilities to suit your major, many schools also require summer interns to write weekly reflections or something similar. But that’s not too hard!
