Do you want to turn your numismatic hobby into a professional career?
The Professional Numismatists Guild now is accepting applications for “Promoting Numismatic Growth,” an education and mentoring program to recruit and train the next generation of coin dealers. Four of the country’s most prominent numismatic companies have joined the project and will provide paid internships for applicants who are selected to participate and successfully complete training.
Applications are now being accepted from candidates 21 to 32 years of age for expense-paid internships that will begin in 2014. A $250 fee to pay for a background security investigation will be required from each candidate with the submission of their enrollment application.
Specific information about the internship program and how to apply is available online at www.PNGdealers.org under the “Promoting Numismatic Growth” navigation links near the top of the home page.
“The internship requirements are rather strict, and the education and training part of this exceptional program will be extensive, but the potential rewards for successful interns can be great for building and enhancing their careers as professional numismatists,” said Robert Brueggeman, PNG executive director.
“Those who are selected for the first internship program will have the opportunity for hands-on work and mentoring at American Precious Metals Exchange, Heritage Auctions, Numismatic Guaranty Corporation and Stack’s Bowers Galleries,” said Terry Hanlon, PNG president.
PNG has hired Carol A. Raia, a longtime human resources executive with extensive experience in recruitment and training, to be administrator of the mentoring program.
