Hybrid OpportunityAn Innovative Collaboration Driven by a Shared Belief in the Power of Young People to LeadAbout UsThe Smithsonian Institution is the world’s largest museum, education, and research complex. Smithsonian Affiliations is committed to helping people across the globe understand the complexity and the nuances of our world by collaborating with a network of mission-aligned Affiliate organizations in this critical work.The Leadership for Change internship is part of the Emerson Collective Youth Collaborative and is supported in part by the Emerson Collective and Do A Little Foundation. We recruit young leaders who are motivated to support their communities and advance social justice. The program provides a cohort of interns with meaningful and enriching experiences and programming to strengthen their understanding and commitment to social justice and leadership, in addition to the hands-on learning experiences at their host organizations. In 2023, the Emerson Collective Youth Collaborative cohort will include students interning at the Smithsonian Institution and its Affiliates, the Emerson Collective, and the George Washington University. Students will be brought together for shared virtual programming, as well as in-person and online experiences, events, and dialogues. When young leaders come together with a diversity of experiences and talents, they expand their networks, exchange ideas, and take action to affect positive change in our communities.Internship Opportunity This is a paid internship. A hybrid internship provides an opportunity for students to use their interests and skills in social justice to support museums and cultural organizations in affecting change in our communities. Interns will become museum advocates and explore new ways to bring museum content, resources, and expertise to communities near and far. This internship offers the greatest flexibility for caregivers, students who want to stay local, or those who are also working during the summer and would like to still have an internship opportunity. The relationships built through this experience will endure long past a single summer as students explore career pathways, apply academic knowledge to world issues, and make connections with both peers and mentors.Interns will spend 3 weeks in person at an Affiliate organization* and 5 weeks working virtually at their home location. This internship is a hybrid learning experience not to exceed 32 hours of work per week. *Pre-selected Affiliate cities will be posted on the Smithsonian Affiliations website; not all Smithsonian Affiliates are participating in this internship. Once an intern is selected, interns and Affiliate supervisors will work together to determine the best 3 weeks to schedule the on-site portion of the hybrid internship.

Your profile is your time to shine, so don’t be shy about listing your accomplishments. Because the more potential employers know about you, the better the chance they’ll reach out. Make sure to list all of your hard work — in the classroom and out — in your profile.
Recruiters are 5x more likely to reach out to you with job opportunities if your profile is complete.
In addition to your major, Handshake also uses your job interests to recommend opportunities to you.
Job interests include:
- Job type: Looking for an on-campus job, internship, part-time job, or full-time job? You
choose more than one.
- Preferred location: Select the cities you would like to work in, and Handshake will show you jobs in that area.
- Job role: Choose at least three positions you would like to explore, like “marketing associate” or “data analyst.”
Beyond your job interests, employers want to know:
- Previous work experience: Have you had a part-time job, internship, work study, research position and or volunteered? Employers like to see that you’ve taken on responsibility, and that these experiences have helped you develop valuable skills.
- Skills: Add technical skills like SQL along with soft skills like communication. The more skills you list, the better your chances are of showing up in an employer search.
- Clubs and organizations: These signal your specific interests, affinity groups, and participation and involvement on campus.
Set your preferences for the types of jobs and locations you’re interested in, Handshake
can find the right opportunities
for you. Because searching through hundreds of job postings that don’t fit isn’t a good use of your time.
The Q&A will be a collection of Q&A based on the questions a student might be interested in. We may use signals including demographic attributes like major or school year, and behavioral data such as companies students view to help show Q&A that are relevant to the students.
Narrow down and customize your job search. Filter through jobs by criteria such as
job type, location,
work authorization, and industry. Keyword search helps you find jobs whose description includes a word that you’re looking for.
For example, if you search for the keyword “accounting,” you will see jobs where the
word accounting appears in the posting.
TIP: Save your searches to quickly access a set of filters you’ve used in the past!
Help employers find you. If your profile is public, you’ll show up in searches when they’re recruiting for jobs and internships.
Connect with and mentor other students. Help other students along their career journeys by making your own visible. And give
opportunity to reach out.
Chat with students and alumni who’ve been there. When you view a job or employer page, you can see other students who have worked there and reach out to them with your questions.
Get an inside look at company culture, interview tips, and more through company reviews.
You can also find answers to common career questions (or ask your own!) in Q&A.

While we do our best to vett employers, employment scams are always changing and getting better at hiding in plain sight. We want to empower you to ensure the employers are legitimate. Here is a resource to help you be aware of typical job scams. If you have any concerns about employer requests or interview procedures, please reach out to our office, we are happy to support you.
In light of COVID-19 we can expect an increase in job scammers. These scammers may post jobs on popular job boards and they may directly contact you via email offering to hire you for a position. Some scams may use reputable companies as fronts, they may even mention Handshake or UAF to make them seem more legitimate.
- Employers who use Handshake can not see your alaska.edu email and will only be able to contact you through the Handshake platform if they have an employer trust score of 80 or above. Additionally, you must choose to allow employers to contact you on Handshake before they will be allowed to do so.
- Handshake will never ask for sign-in credentials or personal payment through email. If you receive an email requesting these or containing unusual phrases, spelling, or grammar, please don’t click on any links or reply.
Be wary if the job posting or email:
- Requests your personal information such as address, phone number etc.without any previous contact
- Asks for any money or sensitive personal information such as bank account, social security number etc.
- Focuses on money or promises to pay in advance. If it seems too good to be true, it probably is.
- Uses an email address that is not linked to the company they represent
- Links to a non professional looking website
- Has spelling errors or lacks a professional tone
- References getting your contact information from your university or career center
- Be skeptical, always ask questions and look up jobs/employers when you are looking at job postings or reading email offers.
My name is Bryan and I work with the HandShake, and my job is to provide part-time employment for qualified students during the academic year and beyond. I have contacted you because there is an opening for you at CDS and below are the lines from your potential employer:
My name is Dr. John Mazzariello and I am the Senior Director of Practice Operations at the Center for Disability Services Council - New York Chapter (CDS).
This is a virtual position which does not require you to travel to NY.
I also provide individual and group therapy, coaching, assessment and academic screenings to support students with disabilities (physical, chronic, psychiatric, and invisible). A large percentage of the students served by the mental health unit have psychiatric disabilities or comorbid psychiatric disabilities and need mental health support to be successful at the University. In addition, many University of students with academic difficulties and no prior diagnosis are seen and assessed through the academic screening and assessment process. I am also the Director of supervision, training and coordination of counseling psychology and clinical psychology graduate students in the United States who have practicums at SCDD and APA-accredited school psychology predoctoral interns.
You have received this email to be considered for an offer from the University Office for Students with Disabilities to work with me. This is an at-will position that reports directly to me. Should you decide to accept the offer, you do not have to travel down to New York to occupy this position as we are transitioning online as a result of COVID-19.
I also have over 10 years of experience working with adults who have problematic relationships, childhood issues, and who feel stuck in their present life. It might be trauma, depression, anxiety, but whatever it is we can help you get "unstuck" together and I enjoy doing this. I believe everyone has the potential to help themselves, but sometimes we need some guidance.
This is a very simple employment. You will only help me mail letters, make payments at Walmart and purchase some items for the new Hybrid Teachers when needed. This employment only takes 6 hours a day and 4 times a week for $620.00
I am unable to meet up for an interview because I am currently away and helping the disabled students in Canada.
You will be paid in advance for all tasks and purchases to be done on my behalf. Some of my personal letters and mails will be forwarded to your residence or nearby post office for you to pick up at your convenience. Upon my arrival we will discuss the possibility of making this a long-term employment if I am impressed with your services while I am away. My arrival is scheduled for the last week of June 2020.
To be considered for this position, use your "alternate email (different from school email)" to contact your employer directly by sending an email with your details as follows:
Current Residential Address,
Alternate email (different from school email)
To:Dr. John Mazzariello
