In 3 weeks I leave for my Professional Internship with the Walt Disney Company. I will be interning with the Disney Institute, the professional development “arm” of the Walt Disney Company. They guide corporations into sound culture change, management and leadership classes, and everything in-between.
My role, as the Program Assistant, is helping the Program Facilitators plan the groups arrivals and schedule classes. For example, if Temple University were to have scheduled a program, my job would to be sure all of their catering, transportation, and accommodations were all taken care of. Although I don’t teach the classes myself, I will have the opportunity to go to each seminar with the groups as a point of contact for the Disney Company.
Here’s their website, if you want to check it out. http://disneyinstitute.com/
I AM SO EXCITED. This position is one that Disney actually emailed me for, asking that I apply for it. So that’s pretty darn cool.
I leave June 12th, with my Dad. We are taking the auto train down to Orlando, which will get us in the morning of the 13th. I check into my apartment June 14th, and its sun and Mickey until January 5th.
So if you need a vacation, come visit 🙂 I get pretty sweet discounts.
