Tip # 1: Apply for the Best Internship on Earth

Looking for a summer gig that won't leave you trapped you behind a desk? Apply for the Best Internship on Earth and you could spend the summer hiking, rafting, and exploring the great outdoors with the Sierra Club’s Mission Outdoors programs. Instead of delivering coffee and making copies, you'll video blog about your adventures. In addition to a stipend and all-expenses paid travel, the winning intern will receive $2,000 worth of merchandise provided by The North Face

The ideal candidate is passionate about the environment and being outside; open to new experiences; a skilled storyteller; experienced with video software and production; and highly engaged with their online community.  To apply, students and recent graduates between the ages of 18 and 25 must submit a video clip (60-90 seconds) showcasing their love for the outdoors and why they want to intern with the Sierra Club.
