ClearVision's Intern Program strives to empower students by providing a unique learning experience that will ease the transition from student to professional.
ClearVision’s Intern Program is a great opportunity for students to “get their feet wet” in the workforce. Our renowned program ties back to the company’s motto: treat others how you wish to be treated. We treat our interns just as we treat any other employee, while giving them the experience they need to make that critical transition from student to professional.
How is our program unique? We take an integrated, interactive approach, providing “real” assignments intermingled with opportunities to develop “real life” skills through training, management interaction, and inclusion in organization events.
What you can expect to learn?
We focus on key skills training, including:
- individual brand building
- techniques for creative brainstorming
- critical thinking methodologies
- interview preparation
We also provide an interactive management speaker series and inclusion in the company’s philanthropic outreach.
Speed Networking: A creative way to teach interns about the power of building business relationships, this exciting workshop connects interns with professionals who can share insight on career choices and goals.
The Science of Shopping Workshop: A look into the psychology of why people buy and what motivates their choices, this workshop intertwines current marketing, advertising and digital philosophies with real world examples.
Left Vs. Right Brain Thinking Workshop: Focusing on how to bridge creativity and analytical skills for success, this workshop enhances innovation, resourcefulness, and solution-oriented thinking.
Book Club with the President: Each summer, ClearVision President David Friedfeld selects a title based on its relevancy and provides an opportunity for discussion directly with him. It’s an opportunity for students to learn how to express their thoughts cohesively and receive critical feedback from a senior executive.
A central part of the program, interns participate in several of ClearVision’s philanthropic events. Exposing interns to the importance of giving back on a corporate level encourages commitment and responsibility from both a business and personal perspective.
Interns have worked closely with the Marketing department to create videos used to educate students and potential interns about the intern program. In 2015, the summer intern team gave a behind the scenes look at their experience by singing along to a parody of Taylor Swift’s widely popular “Blank Space.” The 2014 intern team expressed the benefits of a ClearVision internship by lip synching to American Authors “Best Day of My Life.” These videos are featured on the ClearVision YouTube Channel.
ClearVision has been widely-recognized for its internship program and has received countless accolades, including a feature in Newsday, recognition by One Day, One Job, and receipt of Dowling College’s Internship Program “Employer of the Semester” award.
