About our

Internships


As Shine is a small company, interns are very involved in everything that goes on in our office. This provides them with the opportunity to be exposed to the inside workings of independent film production at a variety of stages. Shine is also a non-profit and interns also work with Shine in this capacity, providing insight into the workings of a non-profit organization.

For all internships positions we are looking for candidates that:

  • Are an undergraduate student of an accredited college or university
  • Have living accommodations in or around NYC
  • Be able to dedicate 2-3 days a week September 17, 2018 through December 21, 2018
  • Have at least 3.0 GPA
  • Are interested in social advocacy, educational outreach, non-profit business, and/or media
  • Have excellent organizational, communication, writing skills, and research skills.
  • Be familiar with MAC OS, Microsoft Office, social networking, and internet research
  • Must be able to work independently and meet deadlines with little supervision
  • Must have your own computer or access to a computer to work remotely.

All internships are unpaid but we will work with you to receive college credit if you need it.
