[QUOTE=PrincessJill;1001879]Oh, PJ has another CP/PI question, what a surprise! :pinch::laugh:
My brother said a Disney rep came into one of his college classes yesterday and said they “need” interns for spring/summer 2010.
Do they still offer summer-only internships? (Professional Internships, not the CP.) My original plan was to do the CP Fall 2010 and hopefully work my way into a PI or a full-time job from there. But now this has me thinking… could I get a jump-start on my Disney plans and do a Summer 2010 PI? Would it be silly to do PI Summer 2010, then CP Fall 2010, then PI again? Would a summer internship clash with the start of the fall CP? I’ve looked at the PI site but it seems to only list information for internships starting Spring 2010.
For the record, I do feel like I need to at least do the CP because a lot of the internships I’m interested in require that you be a CP alumni.
Thanks again, as always. [/QUOTE]
I’m not exactly sure about the PI question you have but I think I know someone who can help you. Here is here Youtube, just PM her with your question and she’ll answer you. She’s a real doll! YouTube - deederbug’s Channel
My opinion would be yes, a Summer Internship would clash with the Fall CP. Simply bc, the Fall CP begins the second to third week of August, which is technically still considered summer. So although I’m not sure. I definitely think that’d cross each other. I know you can do the CP and then at the end you can extend, (if you were a good CM of course) or go seasonal. Or yes even become a PI or get offered a full time position. It’s all up to how your program goes. Most people tend to extend. And then if they are near the end of college they take a PI. Or flat out a Full Time Position. PIs are generally if you wanna work IN (i.e. imagineering, recruiting, office services, etc) the company while FT positions are for if you wanna work FOR the company (i.e. merchandising, attractions, fsf&b, etc). If that makes sense! lol.
