    Professional Internship College Program

    Check-out the apartments Disney puts the Pro-Interns in for housing while on the College Program.

    NorthBridge Apartments

    I know this cause I was accepted into the professional internship program and report to WDW January 12.

    NICE!

    They got a bowling alley in the clubhouse? I'm jealous.

    What do they look for when they pick people for Pro-Internships?

    Fare thee well, gone away, there's nothing left to say
    With a Slainte Joe and Erin Go
    My love's in Amerikay
    The calling of the rosary, Spanish wine from far away
    I'm a free born man of the USA




    I'm not singing about the future
    I'm not dreaming of the past
    I'm not talking of the first time
    I never think about the last

    'Twas better to die 'neath an Irish sky than at Sulva or Sud El Bar
    And from the plains of Royal Meath strong men came hurrying through
    While Britannia's Huns, with their long range guns sailed in through the foggy dew

    Those look gorgeous, even without the fancy-pants table settings. Quite an improvement over Vista Way, eh?

    Like I mentioned before, it's suggested that you complete the traditional College Program, just like WRDup did.

    Thanks for the link.. as I was looking for that information myself. (Applying for next fall... maybe.) But please PM me with details for your PI as I would like to know and jimmybop is in the process of interviewing/looking for an apt. as well.

    Re: Professional Internship College Program

    Those apartments are very close to the most upscale mall in the state! Way to go! VERY nice area. Farther from Disney than the CP housing though, but honestly, it's WORTH it. Oh, you'll need a car here if you live there. Trust me.

    LIke BPF mentioned you have to be a CP alumni to qualify for the Pro-Internship. Other than that they were pretty much looking for someone like me. about 6'1", red hair, sparkling personality, etc. JK. Im not exactly sure what they desired. i feel really lucky. its funny cause i ended up getting hired for and intership i didnt even apply for. they contacted me based on my other applications. go figure.

    the apts are close to the mall of mellinia and are on mellina lake. sounds fancy right? anyway, one of the pre-requisites for the PI is that you provide your own transportation. So everyone has to bring their own cars. I live in California so Im not really looking forward to the drive alone, but hey, whateva!

    i was worried about looking for my own apt. i waqsnt sure how much i would be making so didnt know how much i could afford. i suppose WDW housing is in limited supply but they hook you up pretty nicely so if I were you or anyone else Id give a shot first over finding some other place.

    Re: Professional Internship College Program

    That's true, however you are much more likely if you have completed the CP or an equivalent.

    Yes, and the ones that don't are quite limited and are usually liked to the arts (design) or the sciences.
