Our students are eager to gain firsthand experience in their fields, and are prepared to meet the demands of your organizations because their practical training is targeted to specific career areas from their first day on campus. An internship is first and foremost an academic class, which takes place in your workspace. We partner with sponsors, who host our interns, in this academic endeavor.
By sponsoring an intern, your organization will:
- Discover new talent and encourage qualified individuals to enter the fashion and related industries;
- Receive fresh ideas and energy from our highly motivated students;
- Preview potential employees without any obligation or risk.
In the 2014-2015 academic year, FIT's students performed more than 1435 credit-bearing internships in more than 25 academic majors. These students were drawn from FIT Schools of Art and Design, Business and Technology, and Graduate Studies.
PLEASE BE AWARE: WE are currently working with students who are looking to intern for Fall 2015. We will begin working with students in September who are looking to intern for Spring 2016. Any summer opportunities must be paid positions and entered in the Career Services database at https://career-fit-csm.symplicity.com/employers
