Here's what some of our Internship Alumni say about the program:
"This was the best opportunity for me and the highlight of my summer. I got to work in a comfortable and friendly environment where I was free to ask any questions and was given comprehensive and thorough answers. I learned so much, from guerilla marketing strategies to simpler things like the use of GSuite to help organize one's workday and for even bigger projects. The target tasks each day helped me build skills in dB management and also helped me think about a company from a dynamic growth perspective, how to improve and grow the business every week. After my internship was done I received a very positive Letter of Recommendation, will helped me land some great interviews!"
~ Richard Philbert
"My summer with ProspectBArk was an instrumental step in my professional development. Chun-Soon provided a structured and safe environment to fine-tune my craft. She was also remarkably good at suggesting workarounds when I was stuck on a code issue. After the conclusion of my internship, Chun-Soon not only offered me multiple freelance opportunities, but also connected me with contacts of hers that led to more paid work. I have now been employed full-time in my field for just under two years, and the first step was absolutely my time with ProspectBArk."
~ Shawn Rice, iamshawnrice.com
"Erum, you're simultaneously the VP of Marketing and the Marketing Intern" is what Chun-Soon told me when I asked her if we could try an email strategy I'd read about in an article. Basically, discuss pros/cons of your ideas with Chun-Soon and run with it if it's a go. If you're someone that is motivated by hands-on real work, zero corporate red tape, stimulating strategy conversations, and a very sharp and passionate mentor– apply yesterday!"
~ Erum Akhtar
"Despite having no prior office admin experience, I was able to be immersed in the world of running a small business. Chun-Soon is extremely passionate and invested in this business and puts her trust in her interns. She assigned us tasks that were important to keep the business running- tasks that would otherwise be done by her, not just meaningless busy work to keep us occupied and out of the way. I observed and learned how she managed a team of people with very diverse backgrounds and played to each person's strengths to create the most efficient task force. Additionally, I was given the opportunity to learn how to market an art show, something I never thought I would do. I experienced firsthand how much time, effort, and creativity is put into just a single social media post. Despite having a shorter internship than most, I was able to touch on every single thing on the list of skills I wanted to acquire that I created on the very first day. I definitely feel that this internship has helped me prepare to take my first business management courses."

The program runs for 3 months from your start date (or the school semester term)
You must be able to commute to our office in the Hudson Valley (Newburgh NY near Mount Saint Mary college), approx 90 mins north of Manhattan. As our interns are often juggling classes, coursework, another job and personal obligations, we can be very flexible in scheduling the required hours!
