Vault.com has named Farm Sanctuary as one of the Top 10 Most Unusual Experience Internships in America for 2010.
The career intelligence website recognized Farm Sanctuary's unique ability to provide interns with opportunities to advocate for farm animals and connect with like-minded people while acquiring knowledge of animal protection issues.
"Our interns provide serious value to the critical rescue, education and advocacy work we do on behalf of the approximately 10 billion farm animals who endure unthinkable abuse on America's factory farms every year," said Farm Sanctuary President and Co-founder Gene Baur. "A Farm Sanctuary internship is more than just a resume-builder; it's an opportunity to make the world a more compassionate place for all its inhabitants."
To determine which internships make the Top 10 list, editors at Vault.com review hundreds of programs looking for the best career advancement opportunities, compensation, and resume boosters. Intern personal experience is also a factor.
Farm Sanctuary accepts 50-75 interns annually with internships ranging from 1-2 months to year round. Interested parties must be 18 years or older and have a strong commitment to the animal protection organization's goals. Interns follow a vegan diet and lifestyle for the duration of the internship.
