The fall class of interns are getting close to their graduation date, which means we’re looking for a new crew of responsible, hard-working and hungry folks for our spring semester.
If you or anybody you know is interested, check out the intern positing in the classified section of the blog for info on how to apply. It’s right here. (There is also a permanent link to the CLASSIFIEDS on the home page of the blog.)
Our interns work hard and have a lot of responsibility, so don’t apply, or send people our way, unless you know that the applicant is willing to get their hands filthy.
But remember how when you were a kid, playing in the mud was fun? Well, that’s what we strive for.
We also pride ourselves on having a very successful post-internship job placement program. I’ve promoted 10 interns to full-time positions over the last few years. And recommended many more.
We think our interns learn a lot, too. What specifically do they learn? Well, I’m glad I asked! I thought it would be interesting for my full-time staff members to find out what our current interns learned this year, so I asked the interns. When I saw their responses, I thought you might find them interesting as well.
So . . . here are a few of our Intern Takeaways!
Jonny: I learned the value of working as a team.
Andrew: I learned how to get a show from rehearsal into its run and make it seem (to the audience, press, general public) like it was effortlessly smooth – and ensure that no one had a nervous breakdown behind the scenes, either.
Jaki: I learned that networking and job hunting aren’t about what you are looking to do for other people, but about listening to what they need from you, and finding the balance that keeps you wanting to show up and them wanting you there.
Veronica: I learned the value of seizing opportunities.
