The Official Spring 2014 Professional Internship Thread

Hey guys!

I just thought it was a great time for us PI Hopefuls to start a thread for this upcoming round of PI Applications! Applications should be out around August-September 2013, which seems far off, but I'm sure it'll be here before we know it! I've also created a Facebook group for us to interact, share expertise, and get to know each other through this whole process.

https://www.facebook.com/groups/286342684825703/

A little about myself......My name is Krystal and I'll be graduating this July with my Bachelor of Science in Entertainment Policy and Management! My heart is set on the Conservation Education Presenter PI with Animal Kingdom, however the more I work in my field the more I realize I want to do something more hands on. So hopefully I can get my Scuba certification before apps come out, which will enable me to qualify for some other Animal Science Internships! I've recently been accepted for my first CP beginning Fall 2012, and this will also be my first time applying for a PI!

Looking forward to getting to know you all

Krystal

Hi Krystal! I'm also a Spring 2014 hopeful. So you're applying for the program during the semester that you graduate? I am trying to decide whether to do that or to apply now because I can't take time off school. Your major sounds very cool! Thanks for starting this thread.

Officially NLIC as of this evening along with what seems like a mass wave. It's okay though! I'm going to apply again!

I am also a Disney PI 2014 hopeful! I completed the DCP in the Fall of 2009 and absolutely loved it!! I highly recommend it to everyone. Since then, it has become my dream to do a PI in accounting and then make a career at Disney. I will graduate in May 2014 with my bachelor's in professional accountancy and want to start my PI after that. Any suggestions from fellow hopefuls who have been through the process before?

Thanks,

Hope

I don't have any suggestions, I'm just another 2014 hopeful, also graduating next may. I've been reading up on tips for PI applicants for months now haha.

Given your accounting background, I'd recommend looking into the Finance related PI's. Not exactly accounting, but you get an idea of the "numbers" side of things. You'll see very few, if any accounting opportunities in Florida as most is done in California. However, there are many opportunities within Finance.

I just applied to two similar marketing PI's this evening so keeping my fingers crossed. This will be my last chance as I graduate in November - anxious to hear who else is applying for 2014!!

Having participated in the Accounting / Finance internship with WDP&R .. it really depends on the semester what opportunities are available. The accounting / finance internships are driven by an executive leadership team which works with the departments to establish the semester's opportunities.

Best of luck to everyone in pursuit of PIs. I personally participated in 2 and they were some of the best experiences I have ever had. Any questions let me know!
