Behind the Scenes

HECUA career board – February 1, 2017

HECUA student in Quito rings the doorbell of his internship site, an urban farm.

Each Wednesday we compile a list of jobs that we think might interest our alumni. In the past, this list has existed informally on our twitter account (@hecua_offcampus – follow us!) using the hashtag #hecuacareerboard. From now on we’ll also post an annotated list on our website. If you’re an employer and you’d like to submit a job, email Laney Ohmans at lohmans<@> with a brief description of the position and why it would be a good fit for a HECUA student or alumni. If you’re a student and you’d like our help finding a job, email Laney with a brief description of what you’re looking for!

HECUA Career Board: February 1, 2017

The Minneapolis Urban Scholars Program is accepting applications

There is a good description of this 12-week long, paid summer internship program for students on the City of Minneapolis website. They write that this program “includes formal leadership and professional development training. Scholars spend four days a week working on meaningful projects and work assignments alongside organizational leaders at one of our various host sites. One day a week, Scholars come together as a cohort to learn and practice skills in leadership, professional development, small groups, and public speaking.”

The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources is hiring Summer Naturalist Corps Interns.

A good opportunity for HECUA alumni who are interested in stewarding our state’s natural resources. Interns do work similar to that of a park naturalist, and positions are open at the following parks: Forestville/Mystery Cave State Park; Fort Snelling State Park; Gooseberry Falls State Park; Itasca State Park (college credit may not be required); Jay Cooke State Park; Lake Carlos State Park; Sibley State Park; St. Croix State Park; Tettegouche State Park; Whitewater State Park (college credit not required); Wild River State Park. This is a paid position ($15/hour), and they amusingly state on the website that benefits are not included, but you do get a uniform.

The art gallery The Soap Factory is soliciting outdoor exhibition proposals

From their website, “Proposals for projects can be in any medium and can range in duration from a one time performance to a several month outdoor installation. Keep in mind that this is a call for projects or pieces that will take place outdoors. In addition to staff, installation support, and documentation support; The Soap Factory will provide four projects with a stipend of $5,000. Individual and group artist proposals are accepted.”

Urban park and farm Frogtown Farm is hiring an Operations Manager

Help keep everything humming along at Frogtown Farm, thirteen acres of green space in the center of St. Paul. This sounds like an administrative position to us – you’d report to the Executive Director, and be responsible for “day-to-day coordination and implementations of operations of the Frogtown Farm offices and communications as well as providing financial and development administrative support.”

That’s all we’ve got for this week! Check back next Wednesday for more handpicked recommendations.
