JOHN FLUEVOG SHOES INTERN PROGRAM:
ABOUT THE PROGRAM: John Fluevog Shoes offers two paid six month internships within the Design and Development team a year. The first internship runs from August to January, and the second runs from February to July. Interns work a minimum of 24 hours per week, from 10am – 6pm. As an intern, you will gain valuable insight into the world of footwear design, development and manufacturing. You will participate in the planning and execution of a collection, from beginning to end.
Ideal candidates for the internship are Canadian residents over the age of 19 and have previous experience working in fashion, footwear, or product development. Graduates from design programs, students in the final year of a design program, or CoOp placements will also be considered. Beyond being exceedingly creative and brilliant, applicants must also be computer savvy with a strong working knowledge of Microsoft Office, Photoshop and Illustrator. 3D rendering skills are a plus. All applicants should be detail oriented and have excellent communication, organizational and time management skills. Shrinking violets need not apply, we want to hear your voice!
