The Eisenhower Foundation offers a hands-on, non-paid internship designed for candidates looking for an educational internship. The Eisenhower Foundation is willing to work with the candidate's college schedule and help them earn college credits. Internship duties will vary based upon the organization's needs and student's skill set, but here's an outline of the type of work the intern will be doing:
• Research, e.g. key dates and information in history associated with Dwight D. Eisenhower's life, especially World War II and the Presidency, identify relevant connections to the present, etc.
• Social media, e.g. revise and update social media plan, create relevant social media posts by writing copy and identifying visuals for posts, connect to relevant groups and organizations to help expand the Eisenhower Foundation's social media reach, identify opportunities to engage history buffs and followers, etc.
• Event management, e.g. assist with organization and execution of the Eisenhower Foundation's events at Eisenhower Presidential Library and Museum, whenever possible.
