The deadline for applications is close of business September 8, 2017.
The U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service Marine Monuments of the Pacific Office, located in Honolulu, Hawaii is looking for three Records Management Facilitators to assist in organizing our holdings. Our offices have extensive historical files spanning decades, which document the management, political history, and scientific research surrounding 22 national wildlife refuges and 4 marine national monuments throughout the Pacific. The collections consist of analog and digital records, maps, photographs, and other mixed media. Two interns will be stationed at the Honolulu office and one will be offsite on Kauai.
We are looking for conscientious, resourceful, and motivated information professionals to become our in-house experts. The records management facilitators will be responsible for following a records schedule, organizing and digitizing files, keeping a records inventory, and disposing of files accordingly. You will gain hands-on experience with electronic records, preservation, digitization, metadata, records management, and content management systems. You will also gain experience prioritizing tasks, collaborating with others, establishing guidelines, and training other staff in records management tasks.
Many responsibilities of the rotation will be distributed between the interns. We are looking for a media-specialist, a lead, and a Kauai intern. As the Kauai intern you will become our in-house expert on all things information for the Kauai Wildlife Refuge Complex. The main responsibility of the rotation is to digitize and increase access to the records. The Kauai intern should be flexible, be able to adapt to a remote living and working situation, and be able to work independently. A person who enjoys nature, independence, and the rustic side of life will excel in this location.
