Sponsor Organizations

FIT has forged strong alliances with organizations ranging from communications to manufacturing and from museums to non-profits since its founding more than sixty years ago. The Institute's Internship Center has been active the last 25 of those 60 years and has enrolled more than 2500 organizations in hosting its interns. Recently, the Internship Center was merged with the Career Services department and the new center is now known as the Career and Internship Center. The Career and Internship Center is your one-stop service provider.

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 Spring 2016.  Any fall opportunities must be paid positions and entered in the Career Services database at
