LITTLE ROCK –-(Ammoland.com)- The Arkansas Game and Fish Commission is accepting applications for summer internships until March 5. These internships, funded by sales of the AGFC’s Conservation License Plates, let students gain hands-on training and experience needed to compete for a future career in conservation.
Betty Bryant, internship coordinator for the AGFC, says many students are interested in a wildlife management, fisheries or conservation education career, but often lack the hands-on experience to stand out from the crowd of applicants.
“Each year thousands of students graduate colleges, but very few have real-world experience,” Bryant said. “Internships not only give them that training, but they also help them decide if the career they’re studying for really does fit them.”
Internships are available across the state in conservation education, wildlife management, fisheries management, wildlife law enforcement, Geographic Information Systems and operations management.
To qualify for an internship, an applicant:
Applications should include a current resume, a one-page cover letter, an official copy of college transcripts and a completed application form.
