ALERT: After careful consideration, we have made the decision to close Georgia Aquarium to public guests. We continue to closely monitor this ever-evolving situation around COVID-19 with the ongoing commitment to the health and wellbeing of our guests, staff, volunteers and animals.

The Guest Programs: Hospitality Intern will learn the key components of creating a memorable and engaging guest experience as it relates to programming, hospitality, and public education opportunities throughout Georgia Aquarium.

Interns will shadow staff, including managers, to develop an understanding of hospitality, educate guests of various ages and knowledge levels about our living collection, and execute daily programming at Georgia Aquarium such as behind-the-seas tours, gallery narrations, and celebrations. The intern’s involvement in these programs may vary by semester. This will include training and development of interpretive methods and hospitality while also working with Lead and Management teams on programming objectives. At the end of the internship, the intern will learn the fundamentals of hospitality, interpretive methods, and guest experience while completing a semester-long project.

Applicants must be at least 21 years of age.
