No experience, but I've looked into this before. My advice...shoot for the Baltimore Aquarium. The National Zoo has been going through a lot of issues lately...problems with their director mainly and animal care, and plus well...it's MUCH easier to navigate around Baltimore than to navigate around DC
. I believe they (the National Zoo) have gotten alot of their problems out of the way by hiring and firing some people. An apartment in DC
will cost you, I'm guessing, atleast double what one in Baltimore would, if that is something you are considering as well.
You'll be doing alot of the nasty work....cleaning mainly. They tell you that on the Baltimore Aquarium website I believe. But it can open the door to a lot more experiences and jobs in the future.
Just some tidbits.
Best of luck!
