When do you post new jobs on your web page?

Positions are added to the web site as they come open. We do not have a set day of the week in which we post new positions. You will want to review the web site frequently in order to keep abreast of any changes.

How do I find information regarding internships?

The Society does not have a formalized internship program. If you are interested in a non-paid internship, please forward your resume and cover letter stating your area of interest and dates of availability to the Human Resources Office of the Ohio Historical Society. We will then see if the area you are interested in can accommodate your request.
