Baton Rouge Creative Industry Internship Program

NOVAC:BR is starting a program that would pair qualified interns with local businesses. We need your help to build the best program possible!

We already have a broad network of talented members looking to gain experience in creative and administrative fields and will expand that further as the program develops. NOVAC:BR would manage the recruitment and application process to remove that burden from the companies so that meaningful interactions between intern and employer can be the focus of the experience.

We’re looking to gather information from local businesses in the creative media fields (advertising, production, communications, marketing, graphic design, web coding, gaming, event planning, etc) to help us structure this program in a way that’s useful for all involved. Can you please take a few moments to complete this survey?
