TNNA Members offer more than 35 PiPN Internship Opportunities

The PiPN List is finally up. Pathways into Professional Needlearts 2010 is offering more than 35 different, unique internships for this summer, and perhaps beyond.

These are amazing opportunities, unlike most internships these students hear about or participate in. Our members are mostly small businesses and micro-businesses, companies that most often don't have the chance to have interns. So the experiences tend to be more hands-on, more comprehensive, and often more exciting.

We will be posting the list here,. . . just as soon as I can figure out the technicalities of all this.

I've been busy recruiting students, and have traveled from West Virginia University to the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa. I've spoken to hundreds of students and watched the "lights go on" in many of them. I've received dozens of emails and phone calls from eager young people who have been anxiously awaiting the posting of the internships. I've also received requests for internships in specific locations, so I may be calling on some more of our members to become mentors.

Within the coming weeks, I'll also be at the Art Institutes of San Francisco and Denver, as well as University of Akron, Kent State, Carnegie Mellon in Pittsburgh and, hopefully Moore College of Art & Design in Philadelphia.

We've also had many inquiries by email from students who have been watching the program for several years. I anticipate there may be some real competition for placements this year.
