Two More Fall Internships

The Illinois Labor History Society is looking for an undergraduate intern. This internship is particularly good for a student who is interested in labor history and also keen on the skills needed for public events. In the 75 hours with the ILHS, the intern will:
  • Catalog the inventory of monographs written by young scholars (many went on to write important books on the same subjects);
  • Catalog and organize labor and political pamphlets;
  • Work with then Administrative Manager on activities related to the major annual event, the Union Hall of Honor: phone calls, writing publicity, conducting research, developing program;
  • Other writing, research, cataloging, and clerical work for ILHS as needed.
The ILHS office is located downtown, near the Red Line, at 123 W. Madison. The student would need to figure her/his hours between 10am-3pm when the manager is present.  Interested students should contact Joanna Misnick at 312-663-4107 or ilhs@prodigy.net.

WTTW has 2 internships that we are very interested in filling for the Fall 2012 Semester. We have a “Chicago-area History & Architecture Research Internship” and a “10 Buildings Architecture & History Internship.” Interns should have excellent research, writing, communication, and computer skills, be resourceful, mature and professional. An interest and/or education in Chicago history are important. Familiarity with Chicago is very helpful. Knowledge of TV production is useful, but not required. We prefer interns to be available at least 16 hours per week during the fall, winter and spring terms; additional hours available during the summer and for recent graduates. It is also helpful if the intern has a car or driver's license, but not required.

Learning opportunities include:
  • Assist in the research of content for writing of scripts for the “Ask Geoffrey” segment.
  • Assist in gathering and organizing of archival images, film, or video to support research for the “Ask Geoffrey” segment.
  • Help research and gather archival materials for periodic Chicago Tonight stories as needed.
  • May participate in field production shoots as needed.
  • Provide general office assistance as needed.
Most work will take place at WTTW studios on the northwest side of Chicago. Interns may need
to travel to libraries, museums, and other institutions to complete their research assignments.
Interns may also accompany and assist on field production shoots.

Interested students or recent graduates should email their resume and cover letter expressing their qualifications and interest in the internship to: jobs@wttw.com . Please have them reference which internship they are applying for in the subject line of all correspondence to ensure proper routing.
