Pratt Institute prepares talented creative professionals entering the workforce. As an employer, you have an opportunity to work with Pratt’s talented student professionals by hiring them as interns. An internship allows students to gain hands-on real world work experience under the supervision of an experienced professional in the industry of the student’s area of study.
If you choose to offer an internship for academic credit, the student you hire will be enrolled in an internship course where he or she will receive guidance from Pratt faculty. You will be asked to develop and adhere to a Learning Contract at the beginning of the internship period, which will establish the expected outcomes set by the student, faculty, and you, the employer.
Should you require proof of enrollment in an internship course from your Pratt intern, the student must obtain and fill out a proper request form from the CCPD. Only the CCPD can issue proof of enrollment for internship courses to an employer on the Institute’s behalf.
To begin the process of hiring a Pratt intern, please register an employer account on Pratt Pro (employer.prattpro.com), our online job and internship database. This service is free to you and Pratt’s students and alumni. By posting your internship opportunities in Pratt Pro, your listing will reach the population of students who best fit your criteria.
Once you have posted an internship in Pratt Pro, it will be reviewed by CCPD staff to ensure its fit with the curriculum, academic integrity, and adherence to our program guidelines.
If you have questions about offering internships or would like additional information about the Internship Program, please contact Laura Keegan (email@example.com), Assistant Director for Experiential Education.
