Promoting Numismatic Growth
PNG Internship Program – Turn Your Hobby Into a Career
The Promoting Numismatic Growth Internship Program offers a unique ground-floor opportunity to take your love for numismatics to the next level, and turn it into a successful career. The Internship program consists of three-month placements at prominent PNG member-owned organizations. During these assignments, interns will gain hands-on experience and knowledge of the key principles necessary for a career in numismatics.
Successful completion of this program could result in employment within the numismatic industry, and put you on the path to becoming a professional numismatist. The Professional Numismatists Guild is looking for serious, committed individuals to accept this challenge.
Participating interns spend three months with a PNG host dealer. Interns may be sent to organizations located in different cities throughout the United States. Accordingly, candidates must be willing to commit to travel. Transportation to and from the host dealerships will be provided by the Professional Numismatists Guild, at no cost to the interns. Housing will be the responsibility of the individual interns. However, several host dealers do provide housing. Interns will also receive a salary, provided by their host dealer.
To be considered for a slot in the PNG Internship Program, interested individuals must submit an application.
The first steps an intern must take are to complete the Level 100 and 200 educational courses. To ensure a productive experience, interns will need to possess a basic knowledge of various numismatic concepts before they are placed with host dealers. Our courses are designed to provide candidates a solid entry-level education. These courses will be conducted on-line, and should take no more than three months to complete. Actual time spent could potentially be less, depending on individual effort and aptitude.
There will be required reading associated with these courses, and candidates will be tested on the content. Those who pass this level will receive a certificate, and better yet, be placed on the approved list from which host dealers will select their interns.
