Past interns have joined us from respected schools all over the country including:
launchpad program For Recent Graduates
Heritage Werks offers a unique experience for recent graduates looking for their first professional opportunity. Qualified graduates selected for Launchpad will work in one area of the company (archives, digital, research or client services) in an intensive, hands-on six-month program with exposure to our sports, luxury and fashion, corporate and non-profit clients.
We accept Launchpad applicants on a rolling basis throughout the year. Program participants are not guaranteed full-time employment after the program but will be given priority consideration for open positions based on performance and potential. A significant number of Launchpad interns have transitioned successfully to full-time employment at Heritage Werks.
The Launchpad Program is only open to those who have graduated within the last 18 months.
Our archival interns gain experience processing, cataloging, and creating finding aids, interacting with clients, creating disaster preparedness and response plans and working with our digital team to create and support digital archives.
Our digital interns gain experience configuring web-based DAM systems, establishing metadata templates, migrating data, and tagging content, using state-of-the-art conversion equipment, working with our archival teams to understand discovery, arrangement and management of physical and digital content, and servicing clients to ensure that client priorities are met.
Our research interns gain experience sourcing imagery, stories, perspectives, and other information to discover insights and tell brand stories. Interns conduct research in our clients’ archives and other repositories (public and university libraries, digital resources, etc.). They also learn how heritage can be utilized to connect with customers, communities, and employees.
Our client services interns gain experience supporting the needs of DOW 30 and Fortune 500 companies, professional sports teams, and major luxury and fashion brands. They work as part of a cross-functional team and are involved in all aspects of client//customer services including client meetings, account planning, strategy, project oversight, and reporting.
