Now accepting applications for internships starting in spring of 2013 on a rolling basis.
Commitment: Internships involve a 10 to 30 hour a week commitment. These hours must be accomplished 9-5 Monday-Friday. We prefer that interns are in the office at least two days a week, from 9 am- 2 pm. We also have occassional evening and weekend events. In these cases, interns can deduct hours from your regular weekly schedule to accomodate the extra evening or weekend hours.
