HR Strange But True!
April 07, 2011

The stereotypical internship is lackluster, filled with clerical work or data entry. This is far from how we would describe these experiences, which made Vault’s ‘Top 10 Most Unusual Internships.’

Bermuda Institute of Ocean Sciences—As if the name isn’t enough proof that this would be an extraordinary experience, here are a few opportunities interns can partake in:

  • Go on a research cruise to Antarctica
  • Scuba dive around St. George
  • Publish research

Franconia Sculpture Park—Interns at Franconia Sculpture Park help with installations, landscaping, and maintenance. Why is this experience unusual? These tasks compromise half of the work day, the rest of the day interns create their own sculptural work, which will be eventually included in the park exhibition.

NASA—What do you want to be when you grow up? An astronaut, of course! NASA’s interns work directly with scientists and engineer on research projects. Students can even get the chance to help design spaceflight hardware and software, or even support a real-time mission activities.
