INTERNSHIP REQUIREMENTS

All Lab Interns are required to work in the Lab or on Lab projects (in or out of the Lab) for a desired minimum of 10 hours per week. In the application email, the intern MUST indicate what days and times he/she would be available to work on the internship. Students will be accepted into the internship if they cannot work 10 hours but can provide meaningful assistance in the time that they can work in the internship.

The IDM Lab is physically located on the PLV and NYC campus. It will not necessarily be required that interns work in the Lab all the time, but they will be required to occasionally attend meetings at the Lab in PLV or NYC.

TO QUALIFY
  • a) Students can be from any school at Pace.
  • b) Students must complete the application and marketing positioning statement essay described below.
  • c) Students must have completed MAR 250 or have an acceptable waiver for that course.
  • d) It is desired to have students completed courses in market research, consumer behavior and advertising, but not necessary.
  • e) If students do not have any marketing courses, but have research courses, web design courses, graphics arts course or HTML skills, for example that would be desirable.
  • f) Students must provide a "worksheet" defining how much time can be committed to the internship. 10 hours of weekly work is desired. Time logs and records will be maintained.

The student should complete the Internship Application, then attach a resume and e-mail it to the Lab Head, Professor Harvey Markovitz, hmarkovitz@pace.edu.
