Hey everyone! This is Eliza, one of the intern coordinators, and I wanted to use this space to go a little more in-depth about our intern program and our process.
We are approaching interview-season (in just a couple days!), and we have a really great group to choose from! To be an intern, you have to first fill out an online application, then you’ll meet with us and I’ll conduct a fifteen-minute or so interview. I know the interview sounds intimidating -- at least I thought it was when I interviewed -- but it’s really very fun and relaxed, and just a way for us to get to know you and try to gauge how you’d fit with YATC.
We have big plans for the internship program this summer! We’re thinking that we’ll probably have five interns, one more than one for each show. Each intern will be assigned to a show, and expected to act essentially as a stage manager. Along with that, we’ll have weekly intern meetings, many of which will consist of workshops led by board members and others involved in YATC. There will also be the usual jobs during performances -- running the box office, handing out programs, running concessions, etc. Even though being an intern is not a huge time commitment, we think it’s important to mention that you get out of it what you put into it -- and we want you to get the most out of their experience this summer.
I’m so excited about our program and the individuals involved, and I can’t wait for the summer!
