Looking for an internship

Recommended Posts

I am a fashion design student in NJ, and am looking for a summer or fall internship. I have been searching all the job sites for months, submitting resumes directly to companies, and even cold calling. I can't find any internships! There are only 2 or 3 in NYC, but I am hoping to find something in PA or NJ. You would think with the economy being so bad that companies would be taking all the free work they can get! I figured I would see if any of you guys have any leads. I only want school credit, so I don't even need to get paid for it. Thanks!

I went to Drexel (in Philly) and I had a lot of Fashion Merch friends.. I'll try and rattle off some places I remember them co-oping in...


Urban Outiftters (in the old Philly Navy Yards)

David's Bridal

Joan Shepp (Walnut St.)

Lilly Pulitzer


Vera Wang Bridal

DKNY Accessories


I don't have any contacts or anything, so can't help there... but maybe these are some fresh ideas?

I was in a totally different field (Counseling) but I remember my internship hunt for last Fall was brutal. I must have contacted every couseling area in NJ and PA and I only got 3 responses, 2 interviews and 1 offer. SUCKED.


Do the companies have to be recognizable names or can you intern at smaller places, like for an indie clothing company?


I would also try looking on JerseyIntern.com - Find Local New Jersey Internships - Providing Internship and Volunteer Opportunities . I know they have a fashion design category, but not sure what kind of internship listings they have. One of the call-backs I got was from an agency I found on the site.

Thanks guys! Jessica, I'm gonna check that site now. Katrina, I have been stalking most of those companies for a while now, but you mentioned a few I didn't know were in this area.Like Vera Wang and Bloomingdale's. I actually had an interview at Urban a few months back for a technical design internship. The interview went better than great, and I totally hit it off with the guy interviewing me. At the end he wanted me to do a "pattern test" and draft a jacket right there. I have no problem drafting patterns and am pretty darn good at it. I'm still in school though, and not ready to go and draft a whole jacket by memory. So I didn't get that onesad.gif

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
