As the spring season approaches, many companies and organizations are beginning to open their doors to internship programs for the upcoming spring and summer seasons. For students or recent graduates, this means a prime opportunity to gain real-world experience, build your professional network, and potentially secure a job offer after graduation. As a student, it's common to feel overwhelmed by the pressure and stress of finding the right internship or job. The job market can be challenging to navigate, especially when trying to balance the demands of school or other commitments. Moreover, the never-ending stream of questions from friends, family, and peers about your internship search can make the situation even more stressful.
Therefore, to help alleviate some of the stress that comes with searching for new opportunities, the CCI Department has taken initiative to provide students with an extensive list of upcoming Spring and Summer internships. This list is accessible through the opportunities board page of the CCI Student Collective website, which can be easily accessed via the link provided here or through the link in our Instagram bio. The Opportunities page features a wide range of internship listings from both domestic and international companies, as well as comprehensive details about fellowships, grants, and workshops that are continually updated and added throughout the semester. We strongly encourage all CCI students to take advantage of this resource and discover the numerous internship opportunities available at companies such as Warner Bros Discovery, The Academy of Motion Picture Arts, Estee Lauder, Universal Music Group, Bowers Museum, and many others.
