Intern Placement Process


Final Talent Pool

After being accepted into THF's Final Talent Pool, students are eligible to interview for media internships through T. Howard. 

While acceptance into the Final Talent Pool DOES NOT guarantee internship placement, students who reach this phase of the Internship Program process can take advantage of many THF benefits, including access to professional development opportunities through the Talent Development Program.


Intern Placement Process

Each spring, THF company partners work with staff to identify summer internship placement opportunities.

For each open internship position, the Foundation review committee conducts a search of the Final Talent Pool candidates for the top candidates (with available housing in a particular city) meeting each company's needs.

The top candidates are reviewed and potentially interviewed by the company partners. Each host company makes the final hiring decision.

The placement process will last through mid-May.

Before students in the T. Howard program begin their summer internships, they are required to attend THF's Summer Intern Orientation.


Intern Housing

Neither THF nor company partners provide housing for interns. If students do not have family or friends in cities where internships are available, please use the Intern Housing Options information as a guide.
