2014 Internship

The National History Bee is looking for college students or recent graduates who would like to participate in a fun and unique internship during the spring of 2014.

From February through April, the National History Bee hosts 37 Regional-level competitions for thousands of middle and elementary students across the country. National History Bee staffers drive across the United States during this “History Tour,” stopping every day or two to run these half-day events.

The job of the interns would be to accompany the National History Bee staff on the History Tour, primarily setting up sites and moderating games for the competition.

While the position is unpaid, all transportation and lodging accommodations are provided. Essentially this is one extended road trip across America! Over the course of the History Tour, interns will have the opportunity to visit:

  • Over 40 of the 48 contiguous states.
  • 20 of the 25 most populous cities in the United States.
  • Grand Canyon, Space Needle, The Alamo, Times Square, and more!

We are specifically looking for individuals who are sociable and agreeable in the work place, but who can also be assertive, professional, and well-spoken while on duty. Interns with skills in marketing, journalism, business, photography, web design, or education are especially encouraged to apply. No specific college major or minor  (including history) is required for this position. Interning for the National History Bee is not only fun, but a great résumé-builder too!

groupofguys2The internship will last from February 7th to April 28th (this includes training). In order to apply, please send your résumé and a brief paragraph describing why you are interested to info@historybee.com.

Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any specific questions about the Spring Internship, the History Tour, or anything else!

Applications are due by November 1, 2013, but please be aware that we may offer positions on a rolling basis, and positions may be filled before that date.

We are pleased to announce that registration is already open for the 2014-2015 National History Bee!

You are just a few clicks away from having your child or student join the intensity and fun of America's greatest history competition REGISTER HERE
