Summer 2020 Internship Program

The classroom is great, but no substitute for the real thing

About our program

This program focuses on sales & marketing and is very team focused. You'll spend the majority of your time with your fellow interns working to develop sales and marketing campaigns, executing them, then doing a post-mortem analysis of the campaign, then repeating the process.

You will help execute sales and marketing activities across a variety of channels to drive the business forward. The paid program will provide the opportunity to hit the ground running at a fun, fast-paced company with great opportunities to learn about and execution. You'll work in a team environment with your fellow interns in small teams.

Program Dates: June 1 - July 31, 2020
Location: Orlando, FL (remote is 👌)
Paid: Yes (low pay but high fun 😉)
School Credit: Yes, if available through your school
Application Deadline: May 17, 2020

Roles we're looking for

Because our internship program focuses on building an internship team, we're looking for a variety of roles and talents

Frequently asked questions

What are the benefits of this internship?

  • Gain valuable work experience before you graduate
  • Develop new skills and refine others
  • Apply knowledge gained from coursework to on-the-job situations
  • Meet and work with our team, establishing contacts for letters of reference and networking
  • Earn money for tuition and expenses

Is this internship paid?

Yes, approximately $3000 over the course of the program. But the real value is in the experience, not the compensation. We're looking to help you get real-world working experience to put you in a favorable position to earn more immediately after graduation than you would be able to without this experience. The real monetary value is down the road, not here and now.

Is this in-person or remote?

Both. If you live in the Orlando area, this will be local for you. You'll work from our office with the rest of our local team.

That said, we plan to have a few members of the intern program be remote. We do this for two reasons. 1) Not limiting the geography of the program helps attract higher caliber students which creates a higher performing team and more rewarding experience for everyone, and 2) Working with remote team members is part of the modern-day working world and we want you gaining that experience while you're with us.

How long will this internship last?

Program dates are June 1 - July 31, 2020.

How soon will I know the outcome of my application?

Selected applicants are notified about 2-3 weeks prior to the commencement of the internship. After applying, there will be an interview process conducted via Zoom.

What is the schedule during the program?

In general, think of it as 9-5. Those hours may vary slightly day-to-day and week-to-week depending on the project you're working on, but in general, think of it as full-time 9-5.

Can I get academic credit for my internship?

It may be possible to get academic credit for your internship through your school's academic department. Often your internship must relate directly to your major and will require you to complete a substantial research project or writing component as part of a special studies course.

About Real Thread

Printed locally, worn globally.

We’re a tight-knit group of people who are driven to make quality custom t-shirts that feature the compelling messages and beautiful designs of our treasured customers. We love putting new things out into the world.

Shirts are what we make, but people are our passion.

We operate as both a B2B (business-to-business) and B2C (business-to-consumer) company, but we prefer to think of ourselves as H2H (human-to-human).
The exceptional experiences we create for both our team and our customers is a fundamental part of what we do and who we are. It both motivates us and inspires us to do great work.

We're more than
just shirts

When we started Real Thread in a dorm room 12 years ago, we realized that a t-shirt, believe it or not, can be an extraordinarily powerful messaging medium.
The message, whether it’s friendly, funny, emotionally moving or anything in between, is one that matters. The shirts we made then, and continue to make now, serve as vehicles to connect, challenge and inspire, no matter what the message might be.

Our Values

The “real thread” is the connective fiber that runs through everything we do, giving our people a place we want to work to produce something of which we all can be truly proud. These values are at the heart of who we are as an organization and how we operate each day.

01 Love your neighbor

From co-workers to clients, we treat each other with respect and consideration, building each other up and seeing the best in one another.

02Create wow

By helping our clients build brands while delivering memorable experiences, we strive to make “wow” moments at every turn.

03Be positive

The right attitude is one of optimism and gratitude. No matter the challenge, we remind each other to maintain a positive outlook so we can do good work. Always.
