As we strive to be as helpful as possible to those in the fields of taxonomy, indexing, ontology, etc., we are excited to share career opportunities that we find with our readers. Even if you aren’t in the market for a career move, it is always good to stay on top of what is available and how the fields are evolving.

One particular set of opportunitieser involves internships. Internships offer invaluable opportunities to gain experience in your chosen field. In the taxonomy field, it is important to have experts in a variety of subjects to fully understand the terms and components of a particular study area. Students familiar with taxonomic principles can bring valuable insight to a variety of jobs. The American Anthropological Association is sharing a list of internships that are available, while highlighting the value that one successful taxonomy-minded applicant offered. If you are the position to consider an internship, don’t limit yourself – think outside the job.
