Audience research and evaluation plays a critical role in helping the Jewish Museum of Maryland (JMM) learn about our audiences, who they are and how they choose to interact with the Museum in order to improve and expand our engagement with them.
The JMM seeks a motivated, detail-oriented intern with strong communication skills with an interest in museums and cultural organizations. Under the supervision of the School Program Coordinator as a part of the Education and Programs team, the intern will gain an understanding in current evaluation best practices in Museums, learn how to conduct evaluation and audience research, and apply their learning in a project. The intern will assist in creating and conducting evaluations related to guests, exhibits, and programs at the JMM. This includes gathering guest feedback through surveys and questionnaires, conducting interviews, and observation.
