Hours

We are looking to have our interns in the office, working on a regular schedule, as it will be easier to transfer content and edit the projects. We are flexible and are committed to working around our interns work and school schedules, however, it is also important that the interns fulfill their required hours as outlined by their College/University. We expect a minimum of 2+ half days, or 1 full day, depending on what an interns’ required commitment includes, what their schedules will allow, or what they want to contribute.

 

Our office hours are from 11:00 to 7:00 (sometimes extended), Monday through Friday. The current internship start time is 12PM, although once the program is more established, we will plan to have an ‘Opener’ shift. This shift can start as early as 9AM.

Winter/Spring: January – June (Interviews previous September through December)

Spring/Summer: May – September (Interviews previous March through May)
