Ceres hires a combination of undergraduate and graduate students, and that is often dictated by the projects we are managing. There are three times throughout the year when we solicit applications from potential interns.
Each August, Ceres looks for candidate who would like to intern in our office, in one of our program areas, from September through mid-December. During the fall session, interns will work between 10-15 hours a week. (This is adapted to work with class or other work schedules.) The pay rate is $12.00 an hour. We generally hire about 6-8 individuals.
Each December through early January, Ceres searches for individuals to intern in our office, from mid-January through mid-May. Again, these interns will work between 10-15 hours a week. The pay rate is $12.00 an hour. During this time, we also hire about 6-8 individuals.
Each February, Ceres advertises for our summer program. During March we conduct interviews and make placements. Our Summer Intern Program is held during the months of June and July, and runs for an 8-week period. The work hours are Monday through Friday, from 9am to 5pm. We pay a stipend of $3300 for the eight weeks and provide a pass on the MBTA systems for June and July. We typically hire 8-10 interns, who are a mix of undergraduate and graduate students.
Should you be interested in working as an intern at Ceres, please apply during the times noted, and provide us with a cover letter, resume, and two writing samples. You may send your applications to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Annually, Wild Care admits between 900 and 1400 animals, native to Cape Cod, the Islands and southeastern Massachusetts for rehabilitation and orphan rearing. Interns receive training and gain experience in rehabilitation techniques, volunteer management, and public education, from staff and veterinarians volunteering their services.
Wild Care accepts interns for the spring, summer, and fall of each year. Maximum length of an internship is negotiable, contingent on performance, and is at the discretion of the Director. At this time we are only reviewing applicants prepared to make a minimum commitment of eight weeks.
Interns work under the direct supervision of the licensed staff and in cooperation with the Director and other volunteers. The extent of a student’s experience depends on the type of situations presented by the animals admitted, and the comfort level of the intern.
What type of work do rehabilitators do? (As defined by the National Wildlife Rehabilitators Association)
“The work that rehabilitators perform varies considerably. There is no typical description. Paid positions may involve some or all of the following: feeding baby mammals or birds, assisting with fluid therapy and bandaging, supervising volunteers, providing public presentations about animals and the environment, cleaning cages, maintaining data bases on animals and /or members, fundraising, capturing and transporting injured wild animals, talking with concerned citizens regarding animal and environmental related situations and more. Some people may consider the routine animal care repetitive and boring. Some may get discouraged by callers who do not share our concern and respect for wildlife or who do not believe our advice is the best for the animal. Some may not be able to handle emotional situations of the death and suffering seen in wild animals. There are many challenges.”
There are many rewards in wildlife rehabilitation: helping wildlife, relieving suffering, working with people having similar interests and concerns, encouraging people to re-connect with nature through respect and understanding, responding to and relieving the concern of the public, and taking joy in releasing animals back to the natural world.

Finding affordable summer housing on Cape Cod is difficult given the seasonal tourism industry, but whenever possible Wild Care has arranged for housing for applicants not living in the Cape Cod area. The competitive pool for students in need of housing is much larger than the pool of applicants with their own housing, so in the past we have secured housing for interns or provided a living stipend. At present we are only able to offer housing to summer internship applicants. Interns with the means to aquire their own housing on the Cape (all seasons) are encouraged to do so. All applicants must have their own vehicle for transportation.
