The goal of our internship programs is to train you, the next generation of creative professionals. We seek talented individuals who crave learning new skills and aren't afraid to tackle challenging projects. If you are hired as an intern at EVERA, you will assist with a variety of tasks and be supervised by a senior professional.

 

Our internships are very hands-on. For some tasks, you may have a lot of creative freedom, for others, you may be given very specific instructions. This should give you a good feel of what working in a professional organization is like and hopefully prepare you for your next professional steps.

 

Qualifications

 

We are seeking candidates with the following qualifications:

 

• Students currently enrolled in an undergraduate or graduate program – or who have graduated up to 12 months

prior. The chosen internship must relate to the academic degree and career goals of the candidate.

• At least 20 years old and/or having attended college for at least two years.

• Exceptional talent in the area of their desired internship (with an online portfolio for any visual area - candidates

without portfolios or links will not be considered). Please only submit work that you have done yourself.

• Basic fluency in English (for art-related internships) and excellent fluency in English for writing-related internships.

 

General internship conditions

 

Our internships are conducted at a distance (telecommuting). This means you must have your own computer with skype installed (it’s free) and an Internet connection, aside from other potential software and equipment (printer/scanner/tablet) depending on the type of internship. Our company does not pay for your computer/software/internship related costs.

 

Every internship is part-time (6-15 hours per week) with a set weekly schedule. Our internships are unpaid but candidates will gain valuable skills, experience, and knowledge by working on a variety of very creative projects. College/university credit is possible.

 

Internships are offered on a work-for-hire basis and all interns are required to sign a confidentiality agreement regarding their work. Please note that being hired as an intern is not equal to a promise of employment at the end of the internship. However, we are happy to give references for our successful interns.
