The Human Resources Intern will assist the Human Resources Assistant in the Administration department in three major, summer-long projects.
First, the intern will take a leadership role in organizing ICP's Summer Internship Program Brown Bag Luncheon series. This will allow the intern to gain valuable events planning experience and an understanding of ICP's internship program as a whole. In the past, this luncheon series has included talks by ICP's Director, curators, other various administrative staff (e.g. development, education, marketing, etc.), as well as off-site exhibition tours. The intern's responsibilities will include inviting and encouraging interns and speakers to participate in luncheons, setting up refreshments, composing thank you emails to speakers, as well as creating, conducting, and analyzing follow-up surveys. Organizational and communication skills will be further highlighted in this project as he or she will also be reaching out to other cultural organizations to set up appropriate local excursions for ICP's interns.
The second project will be updating the "ICP 101" kit, which will help new hires become better acquainted with ICP. This kit will include information about the neighborhood (e.g. banks, restaurants, movie theaters, etc.) and special perks available to our staff. This project will utilize the intern's research, communication, and creative skills. It will offer him or her solid understanding of the sorts of "external" information valuable to new employees.
The third project is that the intern will be conducting an internal audit of ICP's personnel files. He or she will be tasked with ensuring that all documents are filed in proper chronological order and that there are no misfiled materials. The intern will need to be well-organized and must pay close attention to detail.
Organization and research skills will be needed for this multi-faceted project, in addition to the communication and interpersonal skills needed to communicate with staff at all levels and in all departments. Knowledge of Microsoft Office programs is essential, as well as writing and editing skills. Further, the ability to think creatively about ways to improve the Summer Intern Program will be very important. Finally, the intern will quickly learn the critical importance of confidentiality in all matters related to Human Resources.
Students must be attending a college or university within the five boroughs of New York City, or must be residents of New York City. There will be no exceptions to this requirement.
Applicants must be enrolled full time, entering their sophomore, junior or senior year as candidates for an undergraduate degree. College graduates are not eligible to participate in the program.
