Finding career direction early has never been more important.
As the labour market becomes more and more competitive, students and graduates have to work smarter to achieve their career goals, taking advantage of every opportunity that will deliver a competitive edge. Internships (international and domestic) are a great way to gain relevant work experience, develop socially and professionally, learn about the fashion industry from industry professionals, and stand out when talking to potential employers
Taking a unique data-led approach to matching interns with host businesses, our proprietary algo-matching system compares over 200 pieces of applicant data (from personal character traits to career aims), allowing us to match applicants with host brands and businesses from within our database of over 2,000 of the industry's best fashion industry businesses, and brands.
FWI interns intern at some of fashion's brightest and best industry brands, fashion houses, PR agencies, magazines, retailers, and influencers, building great professional connections, and developing an international mindset, in readiness for joining the global workplace.
Before accepting a student into our Programs, we work to identify their key learning and skills objectives as well as their career goals to help us select suitable host companies. These objectives and career goals are then shared with the host companies to ensure programs deliver a rewarding and meaningful internshp experience.
During placements, each interns progress is evaluated via feedback from the host company, allowing programs to be tailored where necessary, and any possible issues to be adressed quickly. At the end of the program, we seek feedback from students and host companies, and reference / recommendation letters and program evaluations can be provided on request
We understand fashion.
As the only specialist fashion-focused internship provider, our industry insight and experience has helped us deliver over 1,200 focused internship experiences to students wanting to experience the industry up close.
Partnering with universities, colleges, and schools we can customise our programs to meet the specific needs of your students, tailoring start dates and learning objectives, integrating programs into your study abroad programs, or through the building of group experiences.
If you are interested in exploring options, we'd love to see how we can help.
Recognising the importance of ensuring the safety of our interns while on-program internationaly and domestically, we have put in place robust and comprehensive procedures designed to mimnimise risk, and to fully prepare students for what to expect when they intern abroad.
From pre-orientation sessions explaining what is expected in the workplace, providing guidance and local orientation information about host cities and local risks, to having local coordinators on-call 24-hours a day, our goal is to minimise risk through education, giving students the confidence and tools to make sound decisions, and know how to react if something does go wrong.
We work with colleges, schools, and universities to promote and share our passion for building careers in fashion. If you are interested in having one of our team visit and talk to your students, please get in touch.
