Does working for a small start-up company limit my networking opportunities?
Not at all. We feel that small business environments can make for a great experience. You’ll be exposed to situations and opportunities here that you wouldn’t have access to in corporate offices.

Will I have an opportunity to grow in the position?
Absolutely. We want students to continue to learn and progress throughout the internship, so you feel prepared & confident to tackle real-world challenges that have the potential to turn into great opportunities.

The office is laid back; we want our employees to be comfortable. Music is encouraged, and don’t be surprised if you see dogs roaming around the grounds. We feel that a laid back atmosphere invites a creative work environment. Unless you’re meeting with clients, dress code is casual, but business appropriate. Jeans are welcome!
