Pay It Forward

Go beyond your internship and pay it forward by sharing your experience with others. As an intern, you will be consistently growing and developing both personally and professionally. Consider sharing your story by contributing to one or more of the areas below.

Intern Stories

Give your peers and the ArtCenter community an in-depth look at your internship. Consider contributing a story to reflect on your experience and how you grew both personally and professionally as a result of it. Check out what past interns have had to say.


Are you working on a cool project? Does your internship site have an awesome campus? Are you living in and exploring a new city or country? If so, we want to see! Tag @artcenter.cpd or email your photo to to be featured on our Instagram.

Intern Panel

In the spring and fall terms, CPD hosts an Intern Panel. This is a peer-to-peer panel discussion where past interns can share their internship experiences with students preparing for their own internships. Volunteering to be on the panel is a great way to give back to the ArtCenter community and to practice talking about what you gained from your experiences, which is helpful for future interviews.
