The Dallas Zoo’s College Internship Program provides an interesting and rewarding learning opportunity for currently enrolled undergraduate or post-graduate students at an accredited college/university in the United States. Interns become actively involved in the Zoo’s animal care departments, conservation/research efforts, operations, and administrative positions.
The Guest Experience Department oversees the hospitality function of the Zoo. Interns are exposed to a wide variety of tasks that enable them to gain experience in customer service and public relations, as well as the business and economic side of the hospitality and zoo industry. This position offers an opportunity to work one on one with zoo staff that specialize in various facets of hospitality and customer service. The internship program affords individuals a behind the scenes look of what it takes to manage a successful, internationally recognized zoo.
Interns work 20-40 hours per week for a minimum of 12 consecutive weeks during one of the sessions listed below. The purpose of the placements is to help the intern gain experience related to their education, and most are unpaid positions. The Dallas Zoo will work with students to document necessary time or projects needed to gain university credit for the internship. Unfortunately, we cannot provide transportation, housing, or a stipend. Position limited to US nationals.
Candidates selected for internship must pass background check and TB test.
The deadline for 2017 Summer internships is March 10, 2017.
