EECM 1803 - Industry Exploration Internship: Corporate

Experiential Education & Career Management
Since many students come to LIM College with significant retail experience, Industry Exploration Internship: Corporate provides an opportunity to explore the nature of the fashion industry from a different angle. This is a restricted course and is open through application only via the Department of Experiential Education & Career Management. To qualify, students must have earned a minimum of 24 credits on their LIM College transcript and show that they have at least one year of recent and significant experience working in a retail setting. Additionally, they must submit a dossier that includes a letter of recommendation from their most recent supervisor describing the student’s duties and responsibilities. Students will be expected to complete a corporate internship in an area they wish to explore to expand their knowledge of the fashion/business industry. Students will be required to complete a total of 130 hours at the internship site and should therefore expect to dedicate approximately 10-15 hours per week to this internship. The classroom component of this course consists of reflective sessions to discuss internship progress. At the end of their internship, students will participate in an exit interview process and submit a written summary of their experience outlining how they gained deeper insight into the fashion industry.
