Minority internships are designed to provide the perfect opportunity for minority students to gain real world job experience and begin their journey towards their career. It is to the advantage of interns to make the best of their internship as well as apply for as many internships as possible every year.
In the end, statistics show that after graduation, students with an established internship record are more likely to officially enter their career with higher salaries and are more prepared to be successful in their employment than students who choose not to intern at all.
Below is a list of the top 2014, recently updated for 2016, minority internships:
#1 – The Diversity Internship available at The Strong was created to provide meaningful work experiences for students from diverse backgrounds, especially those who may be interested in a career in the museum profession. The Strong does not place any restrictions on what constitutes diversity. However, preference will be given to those candidates who best identify how they will add to the diversity of The Strong and the museum field generally.
