Please explore our DRC Internship opportunities. You will find instructions to apply in each description.
Each summer, the Dallas Regional Chamber hosts undergraduate college and university students to participate in an active Internship program. The program aligns closely with the DRC’s strategic plan, investing in the emerging workforce and mentoring students to become job-ready upon graduation. Students are provided the opportunity to work with a diverse group of experienced staff and DRC members in a fast-paced, challenging environment.
The Summer 2017 Internship will begin on June 1, 2017, and end in early August.
Intern Weekly Meeting
Each week the Interns meet as a group with the Internship Program Director to update each other on current projects and work on the group project.
During the Intern Orientation Meeting, the interns select a topic for their summer long cohort project. The theme and execution of the cohort project is in entirely in the hands of the interns, with guidance from the Intern Program Director. At the end of the Internship, interns present the project to the DRC staff and invited guests. Check out the Summer 2015 and Summer 2016 projects.
During the semester, interns have the opportunity to meet with a member of the DRC that sparks their interest for a potential career. This is a time for the Intern to have the opportunity to ask questions, gain insight, and connect with industry leaders outside of the DRC staff.
Lunch N’ Learns
Each week, we host an exclusive Lunch n’ Learn for our Interns, featuring one of our Executive Team members. The member will present on a topic relevant to students such as Sales Tactics, Customer Service, Civic Engagement, and Personal Branding.
At least once a summer, Interns will venture out to one of the DRC’s member organizations for an afternoon. This is a time for the interns to break away from the office and see first-hand the hard work of the DRC member organizations. Past trips have included The Dallas Entrepreneur Center and D Magazine/Dallas Innovates.
At the beginning and end of the semester, there is an opportunity for Interns to come together in a social setting and celebrate their hard work! It might be going to lunch, bowling, or a baseball game; providing opportunities for Interns to bond together is a priority.
Eligible candidates will have a strong interest in the DRC’s work, particularly in an available Intern position. To gain the most from the learning opportunity afforded by the program, Interns must have an aptitude for detail, multi-tasking, prioritization, and learning in a team-oriented environment.
Eligible candidates must be undergraduate students currently pursuing a degree from a college or university and available to work in Dallas, Texas, for the entirety of the Internship.
Interns are asked to work between 10-20/hours per week during the Internship.
