"Taking an internship at the Bureau of Land Management wasan excellent choice! The work environment was extremely friendly and welcoming.
The internship provided me many new skills, such as learning to use Trimble Business and CNN and how they are used to move survey data to true line diagrams. If you are interested in surveying and GIS work, I would highly recommend the Cartographic Technician internship with the Bureau of Land Management."

It has also allowed me to network with more people in the archaeology field. If you are someone who is thinking of an internship, but aren’t sure if you should apply, just do it."
