****The first 25 hours each week for these intern months is an unpaid internship, beyond those hours (average is 40 hours weekly) it is paid (part-time job rates), but a great opportunity to gain practical experience. We are small and busy company and take only one intern at a time which allows us the ability to give more responsibility and hands-on training than internships with bigger companies. Extremely immersive experience with this integral role, past interns have learned so much and you will too.
**We will work with students with college credit if possible.
