Internship Program Description.

IFC Collegiate begins January 1st, 2022 and is open to students at UNI and Hawkeye. There are four openings per session: one in graphic design (branding), one in messaging, one in media, and one in web. The program lasts for 12 weeks and during that time students would:

  • Assist with internal IFC projects.
  • Assist with client projects.
  • Attend a webinar hosted by each of us (4 in total) based on important industry topics within our studios.
  • Join our IFC Collegiate Basecamp Group where they could bounce ideas off one another, and participate in one Q&A a week hosted by a member of the IFC team. These would focus on broader industry/employment-type questions

In order to join this program.

There will be a rigorous evaluation process. Interested students should be far enough along in their education to complete work at both a high artistic level and a timely manner. Also a contract would need to be signed agreeing to the terms of internship expectations and employment.
