Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks internships for summer 2003 offer college students a variety of opportunities to gain "hands-on" work experiences that link to future career goals.  An internship is a great way to begin building an eye-catching resume, too.

 "FWP projects and programs have benefited from the energy and enthusiasm of over 200 talented young people who have participated in this program over the past 10 years," said Debbie Cheek, FWP field support supervisor responsible for coordinating the program.  "The interns not only gain experience, they complete projects that can serve as work experience on their resumes."

 The typical internship is 12 weeks, totaling 480 hours with an average wage of $8 per hour.  This year about 25 positions will be available.  Students are encouraged to contact the career service office, work-based learning center or job opportunity placement center at the college they attend for details, or to visit the FWP web site at www.fwp.state.mt.us/parks/volunteer.asp.  The application deadline is March 10.
