Thank you for your interest in partnering with Pratt Institute to hire one of our talented students! We are focused on building strong relationships to the creative industries. Please utilize our website for more information on recruiting interns for high quality work-learning experiences and joining us as we educate the next creative class.
On the following pages you can find information on an employer's responsibilities and also information surrounding the best legal practices for hiring interns in New York State as well as within Pratt's intern program.
When posting internships, if your organization is willing to work with students to obtain credit, please keep in mind that this means our students are enrolled in an internship class, they pay regular tuition and earn academic credit. The timeframe for credit-bearing internships must adhere to our academic schedule.
Please feel free to contact our Internship Program Manager, Laura Keegan at firstname.lastname@example.org with any specific questions or concerns.
Annual Internship Fair
Each fall the Center for Career & Professional Development hosts an annual Internship Fair for companies in and around the New York City area seeking interns from all of our majors. This event introduces students to company representatives who are offering internship opportunities in the spring and summer semesters.
In 2012 we added a one day conference to our fair: Find & Follow Your Passion created in partnership with NY Creative Interns. The fair was hosted on Saturday November 10th in our Student Union space at 200 Willoughby Avenue from 10:30 AM-12:30 PM.
