The 2015 AHP Student Internship Listings and applications are now available online at AHP Student Internship Program to college students who have an interest in horses and seek a career in equine publishing media.
The AHP Student Internship Program is a great way to provide students with the resume-building experience that’s so critical to today’s job market. Interns gain valuable hands-on real life experience and AHP members acquire additional help when and where they need it most.
AHP is the nation’s only non-profit professional association of over 500 members dedicated to promoting better understanding and cooperation within the equine publishing industry. Membership consists primarily of equine-related print publications and digital media as well as professionals, businesses and organizations serving the equine industry.
AHP serves as the umbrella organization for the internship program and is responsible for providing the forms and internship listings of the participating AHP member publications and businesses. The available AHP Student Internships for 2015 may be accessed online at the AHP website (www.americanhorsepubs.org) under Students. Information includes how to apply, guidelines for the student intern and the AHP participating member, and a listing of the internships offered. Each listing includes the publication or company name, a brief description, types of internships offered, availability/duration, requirements, information on compensation and housing, and contact information. Students apply directly to the AHP member, who will choose the applicants that best meet their needs. AHP members may hire more than one intern.
American Horse Publications also offers students wishing to become involved in the equine publishing industry with an opportunity to join the association and participate in other student programs.
