The STUDENTdirect Pre- Internship Program (SdPIP) offers undergraduate, graduate, and post graduate students an opportunity to gain practical work experience through a paid/ unpaid internship related to their academic field of study or area of interest.
The SdPIP program provides an opportunity for students to learn about the media industry while making a social impact as they apply classroom theories and concepts to real world problems.
The types of internship opportunities offered to college/ high school interns may include but are not limited to: human resources, marketing, advertisement, operations, finance, public outreach, general business, international relations, and administration.
SdPIP intern assignments are reviewed every six months; an intern has an opportunity to work up to a maximum of two years in his/ her assignment. An intern can submit an application with resume and cover letter at any time.

All interns must adhere to STUDENTdirect's dress code and observe all safety rules and regulations at all times.

I have grown to appreciate STUDENTdirect's Pre- Internship Program. Their performance exceeds that of an average employee.
