What is the CI Internship?

  • The internship is an opportunity to use your passion and skills to contribute to CI

How are Interns Selected?

Candidates will be selected based on their professional background, the recommendation of their biweekly facilitator, their CI skill level as assessed in their videos, their expressed intentions for the internship and whether we think they would be a good fit for our CI Team. The number of interns required for each cohort is dependent on the number of biweekly groups. Two interns are allotted per biweekly group.

Once a candidate is accepted for the internship, we reserve the right to remove them from the internship at any point if it seems they are not a good fit, or if the CI Code of Ethics for Practitioners is breached.
