We are seeking dynamic Personal Assistant Interns to work closely with the Founding Partner(s) of our organization. As respected members of the Administrative team, Interns participate in weekly planning meetings and are expected to complete tasks and projects in their respective fields of study. Our unique and highly selective internship program welcomes motivated Interns wishing to engage in a meaningful work experience to apply. Serious Interns are encouraged to apply and submit required documentation for review.
Various internships (p/t vs. f/t and one semester vs. multiple semesters) are offered. As an integral member of the EOEP, we greatly value the necessity to fully orientate Interns to the Eldridge Overton organizational culture and system. Accordingly, full time and longer termed internships (multiple semesters) are favored. However, we do hire part time and one semester Interns. Since a tremendous experience is granted via this internship, Interns may either earn college credits (where applicable) OR a monetary stipend. A minimum of 15 hours per week is required. The stipend offered is per semester, but is payable monthly throughout the duration of the internship.
