COVERAGE:
All Department of Natural Resource Interns are subject to this Guidance Manual. For further clarification and information, the Hualapai Personnel and Policies Manual will be consulted.


LENGTH OF INTERNSHIP:
Internships are for a period of approximately eight twelve weeks. This allows time for the intern to learn basic field skills and techniques and then practice what they have learned. It also ensures that the Department benefits from the work of trained interns after investing time and energy in their training.
 

INTERN DUTIES AND RESPONSIBILITIES:
By shadowing Department staff, interns will be trained in a variety of tasks with the goal of gaining experience and skills needed to work independently: The intern should have the ability to perform a variety of work tasks in wildlife, fish management, research programs, and be able to walk or travel over rough terrain and camp overnight. Work may have to be performed in inclement weather. Each intern will be provided with interpretation and training in the methods and objectives of each Department Program and on-the-job experience in air and water, wildlife/livestock research, wildlife/livestock management, or related administrative programs, and will be evaluated by their supervisors at the end of the program.
