Essentially, the History Factory is a business consulting company that uses history to inform the present and, hopefully, improve the future. Since 1979, the company has hired historians, archivists, writers and researchers to explore companies’ backgrounds and show them how to use their history to improve their businesses. They often help companies with special events, like anniversaries and mergers.
The Archival Internship Program allows graduate students the opportunity to conduct records surveys, identify historically important documents and artifacts, and appraise monetary values of historic pieces. Undergrads can intern as part of the Interpretive Internship Program, which invites “creative and intelligent” students to research the historical backgrounds of several American organizations and interpret those details for contemporary businesses.
Archival internship program: open to graduate students only. Interpretive internship program: open to college freshmen, sophomores, juniors and seniors attending a liberal arts school.
