Intuit’s internship program accepts undergraduates, graduate students, and recent graduates who are interested in gaining hands-on experience in a nonprofit art museum.

Interns are expected to take part in several aspects of Intuit. In addition to completing specific daily tasks, short-term assignments, and long-term projects, interns also participate in staff meetings, educational and public programming, and special events. Interns are required to work 15-20 hours per week for a minimum of three months.


Intuit internships provide exciting opportunities to gain valuable insight into the operations of a nonprofit art organization. Past interns have used their internship experience to enter into careers in museums and other cultural organizations. Some have even become Intuit staff members.

While Intuit internships are unpaid, there are many other benefits of being an Intuit intern, including: a membership card that provides reduced or free admission to more than 800 member museums across the nation for one year; occasional curator-led museum tours of current exhibitions; free participation in Intuit events and programs; discounts in the Intuit Store; and opportunities to work with museum professionals in every department of the museum.
