Internships will be posted on our website on a rolling basis until January of 2021. We have designed a new protocol for our grantees that will enable them to notify us two weeks from when they’d like to start interviewing. This gives crucial planning time and move to hire an intern when they are ready. Students should check our website: www.lacountyarts.org/internships in the coming weeks for the most up to date information, especially once the "Safer at Home" ordinance is lifted.
Interns will have more flexibility in their work schedules. We anticipate that many organizations will need to go less than full time with their interns, so we have amended language that would allow for interns to work as few as 15 hours a week.
Clear communication about scheduling will be critically important. As the timeline has been expanded, many interns will need to return to school while completing their internship hours. Students should be prepared to clearly communicate, to the best of their ability, what their other commitments will look like as they overlap with their internship. Given the flexibility, our hope is that organizations will be ready to accommodate students who are going back to school, have other jobs, etc.
