ResponsibilitiesDepending on the program(s) each intern works on, tasks may be different. Will be discussed on an individual basis depending on interests.
The Application Process:
If you are interested in applying for a position, you will need to review our programs and submit a written
application. Once we receive and review your application, we will contact you to schedule either an office
or Skype Interview. Based on both your Application and Interview, we will determine whether you are a
good “fit” for our programs. If you are, then you will receive an acceptance letter in the program as well as
a “Letter of Agreement” that you will need to complete. This letter will outline many of your duties and
responsibilities, and allow you to state your learning objectives.
The Structure of Your Internship:
You will also get access to a Dropbox account, where we share files whether you’re in the office or doing
work at 2 o’clock in the morning from home. You will also create and maintain a spread sheet that will have
the name of the organization you doing the task for, the title of what you working on, and the tasks that
you are doing, as well as any notes that you make.
Additional Tangible Benefits of Your Internship:
1) Resume Review & Correction: This spread sheet will form the basis of how you update your resume in
the future. And when you successfully complete your internship, I will personally review your resume and
2) Written Letter of Recommendation: When you successfully complete your program, you will receive a
written letter of recommendation that will specifically tie into the tasks you did that are of consequence
for the perspective employer.
3) Portfolio Creation: We recommend that you have a portfolio to showcase the work that you’ve
accomplished. Portfolios are used in the graphic design, photography and entertainment industries (in the
form of a “reel”) to showcase the accomplishments and skill set of the individual.
RequirementsRegardless of your background, in order to be successful in our internship programs there are really only
three things that you have to have coming in:
1) Desire To Be Successful. You must have a passion, energy, for what you are doing.
2) Determination To Be Successful. You can have all the desire in the world, but if you don’t put it in
work, you are not going to be successful.
3) You Must Be Coachable. This means you have to be willing and able to take direction. There are
concepts, practices, and procedures that you going to be exposed to that you may not understand right
away, but you still have to do the assigned tasks with the hope that the understanding will follow.
