The deadline for applications is close of business September 8, 2017.
The U.S. Fish and 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. It will also be the responsibility of the lead to train the next rotation of Records Managers.
Many responsibilities of the rotation will be distributed between the interns. We are looking for a lead, a media-specialist, and a Kauai intern. The lead will prioritize the big-picture potential of the US Fish and Wildlife Service records room. For example, they will continue the goal of creating a sustainable filing system. They will also digitize and purge records, maintain the online catalog of US Fish and Wildlife Service references, and other tasks as needed. The tasks of the two Honolulu interns are not mutually exclusive but have been devised in order to make the most of a six month rotation.
