DescriptionPresentation Excellence is the parent company for a number of existing and soon-to-be-launched companies.
We've provided over 500 internships over the past decades for students from US, Europe and Asia). We work with lots of schools and lots of programs.
While we don’t pay a stipend, we do help the students get academic credits when possible. While it is not supposed to lead to a job with one of our companies, sometimes it does. (My current right-hand person, started as an intern and has been with me over 3 years!). We’re at a stage right now of launching a few new companies, which will provide employment opportunities if things take off well.
We require a minimum of 15 hours per week during the Spring and Fall semesters, and 32 during the summer.
We’re looking for bright, ambitious people who want to learn about business, especially new business development (marketing, sales, social media). No specific background is required, but great communication skills, creativity and attention to detail are key assets.
