Great work in getting a head start in your career! It is never too early to think about how to tell your story in a unique way when applying for jobs in the future. As you may already know, our internships have a few eligibility requirements, which can be found on our website. Individual internships may call for additional requirements, which would be notated in the job postings itself.
If you are not eligible yet, take this time to peruse our catalog on www.disneyinterns.com. Familiarize yourself with our offerings so that you can better plan for what kinds of positions you would like to apply for once you are eligible. Our job postings change from season to season based on business need, so instead of remembering the exact name of a position, remember the description, location, or other details of the job so that you can find similar roles in the future.
Also, take this time to work on your resume. Although you may not have a lot of work experience yet, you may have more material to share than you think! What relevant volunteer experience do you have? Are you active in any clubs or organizations? These are all valid points to include in your resume, so long as they relate to the job posting.
You can also visit your school counselor or career center for assistance on crafting a well thought out resume and cover letter. Although cover letters are not always required, they can provide supplemental information that is not in your resume.
We also recommend learning more about the Disney College Program as well. It is another opportunity for college students to gain experience within Disney.
We look forward to seeing your application when you meet our eligibility requirements!
