Professional Internships have been posted for almost a week now. And I still have not applied for any positions! I have been spending the past week looking over all the positions and narrowing down which ones I am interested in. I have also been working on my resume, asking for letters of recomendation and working on finishing my portfolio. Some of the positions ask for a cover letter so I will be working on those as well. I've given a lot of thought to including cover letters and letters of recomendation when they are not being asked for, and I have decided that if they don't want to read it they don't need to look at it, and hopefully it will show that I am very interested in the position by the extra effort.
I have finally narrowed down the list of which I am going to apply for. Most of them are Graphic Design or Event Planning based as I have significant experience in both. I am also applying for a Lodging MI and have interest in several Alumni Only PI's
Here is my complete list of what I plan to apply for:
Park Event Operations Assistant
Activities, Events and Recognition.
(Maybe Guest Correspondence or EPCOT Project Support)
Catering and Convention Services
Disney Fairytale Weddings
Recruitment Marketing Graphic Design Internship
Distribution Marketing Services Graphic Design Internship
Disney Institute Graphic Design Internship
Graphic Design - Communications Internship
Yellow Shoes Associate Art Director/Graphic Design Internship
(Maybe - Yellow Shoes Associate Copywriter Internship)
Management Internship - Lodging
I feel that I am qualified for all of these positions and it would be amazing to recieve an offer for one of these positions. I am taking my time with my applications so I feel comfortable and that I have given each my best shot.
