NGC and NCS Internship for Aspiring Numismatists
Posted on 6/1/2005
Numismatic Guaranty Corporation and Numismatic Conservation Services are continuing their comprehensive numismatic internship program at their headquarters in Sarasota, Florida. Applications are now being accepted for positions available this summer.
Interns work along side some of the most knowledgeable and experienced numismatists in the hobby. Available positions include work in authentication, variety attribution, grading, conservation, digital imaging, research, submission management and encapsulation of U.S. and World coins, including tokens, medals and colonial coinage.
Rick Montgomery, NGC President and Senior Grader, comments on this opportunity: "This internship will foster the development of skills that would normally take years if not decades to acquire."
NGC and NCS will provide a stipend and lodging as well as transportation to and from Sarasota if needed. Applicants should be at least 18 years of age by the start of the internship and have a background and interest in numismatics as a career.
To accommodate more applicants and their varied schedules, this position is offered during the summer or fall of this year. Its duration may also vary in accordance with academic scheduling. Successful candidates may also have the opportunity to attend one of the major coin shows that NGC and NCS attend.
To apply, candidates must send a resume and a letter describing their numismatic background, interests and goals to Certified Collectibles Group, Attn: Scott Schechter, P.O. Box, 4776, Sarasota, Florida, 34230, or by fax to (941) 360-2553, or by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
