To accomplish all we do we have pulled together an amazing team of individuals with an eclectic background in marketing, sports management, community development, business administration, and event planning. Interning at DC Fray will give you the opportunity to have direct hands on experience and mentorship in a way that other internships just aren’t able to provide.
We look forward to you joining our team!
The Internship Program
Most students will complete a 300-400 hour internship to satisfy graduation requirements. This equates to 40 hours per week for 7-10 weeks. Some students will need to stay longer and some will have shorter practicum requirements with less time commitment. These cases will be addressed individually but typically interns must be available for a minimum of 20 hours per week for a minimum of 6 weeks to be considered for placement. Interns are hosted year round with flexible schedules!
We pay $150/month stipend to all interns, to help cover their transportation costs related to the position, for the duration of their internship.
Interns can also expect that there were be several areas of the business that they will get exposed to, but will not be the focus of their internship. On top of their daily activities and exposure, they will be given a "master" project in the marketing department.
Students will work alongside their department Manager developing marketing and branding strategies, allocating marketing dollars for different media outlets, developing ads, creating social media promotions, doing research and more.
