Internships occur on a rolling basis closely following the academic calendar. That being said, they’re typically 3 - 4 months. Previous art preparator experience is a plus but not necessary. Candidates should be detail oriented, have good computer skills, be personable (as you will interact with clients), and professional, eager to learn attitude!
