Hiring Interns

If you are in need of interns, LIM College has students in a variety of programs to meet your needs. We have three required, for-credit internship programs. Or if you don’t require interns to receive credit, LIM College can offer a letter of support.

Our internship programs include:

Industry Exploration

Students will spend 10-15 hours per week in a retail-based setting that provides a hands-on work experience to improve understanding of the nature of the fashion industry with a primary focus on where the customer makes contact with the brand.

Students have the opportunity to participate in the Industry Exploration Internship during any of the scheduled terms (Fall, Spring, Summer) to provide maximum flexibility and choice in securing the best opportunity to meet individualized goals

Career Pathing

Students have the opportunity to participate in the Career Pathing Internship during any of the scheduled terms (Fall, Spring, Summer) to provide maximum flexibility and choice in securing the best opportunity to meet individualized goals.

Students will spend 10-15 hours per week in a corporate/managerial setting that provides the opportunity to experience the requirements of their expected career path. Further, through the internship, students will gain experience with the skills needed to succeed in their career path allowing them to better make academic choices. 

Senior Co-Op

During the second semester of their senior year all LIM College students are required to participate in the Senior Co-op program. The Co-op is designed to provide students with a significant full-semester work experience in the fashion industry, ideally in an area relevant to their career goals and previous experience.

Interns work Monday through Thursday, full-time, for a total of 28 hours per week (excluding the lunch hour). Students are also required to attend classes on campus every Friday.

During the Senior Co-op interns must receive an on-site visit by an LIM College staff member and a final evaluation from their direct supervisor. This internship must be completed in the New York metro area because of the weekly Friday class requirement. Click here for more information about Senior Co-op Guidelines.

Other Internships

In addition to our required internship programs, LIM College students often seek part-time internships during the academic year or over the summer in order to gain additional fashion industry experience.
