Accepting Applications: Choose901 Interns

Update: Applications are now open for Fall/Spring 2019-2020!

We are looking for some talented individuals to join our staff for our writing internship program.

We have a significant change for the next intern class! We will be changing the internship program from a semester to a full academic year.

The program runs from September 3rd through April 27th, 2020.
This is an unpaid academic internship, with the expectation of 10 hours per week in our office, to be scheduled based on your availability (and you’re welcome to be in the office as much as you’d like beyond that!). Hours spent working with us can count for volunteer/community service hours.

Perks of the Internship:

  • Free coffee and snacks? Yup.
  • Resume workshop.
  • Online portfolio workshop.
  • Professional development opportunities.
  • …and more. So much more that we’re not even sure what else, but it’ll be awesome.
