Who can apply?

TECHNOLOGY & MEDIA MENTORSHIPS

We seek out and invite the highest performing technology and media students to apply. You must love solving problems using strategic and creative methods.

We HANDLE THE  PAPERWORK 

We handle all the hiring paperwork and depending on the educational institution, any internship credit.

REAL-WORLD, HIGH-LEVEL PROJECTS

Beware! This is REAL-WORLD WORK that is HARD, and only the best students make it through with high scores.

Best practices that give you an edge

Throughout an internship, you will be scored on your objectives in achieving best practices that save time and money. These best practices will give you an extra edge in the job marketplace.

EVERY MENTORSHIP IS PAID

We only offer paid mentorships. We believe that if you are doing great work, you should get paid since you brought value to the sponsoring company. Secondly, we have seen the treads and know that many of you are suffering from student loan debt.

OWNERSHIP OF the WORK

For the duration of the mentorship you will be a paid independent contractor within the studio. Any work you create for a company in a development contract will belong to the sponsoring company.

MENTORS THAT GUIDE YOU

We match the right professional mentors to you to curate an optimal real-world learning experience that provides you with solid results in technology development and media creation.

Live-Stream tV Show

If you are a part of a Showdown, you will also be on a live-stream TV show.

HOUSING & FORIEGN students

We heard your request for housing. Currently, we do not offer housing but we are working on solutions for future mentorships. As to foreign students, right now we are focused on U.S. Citizens.

REMOTE VS IN-PERSON OPTIONS

We heard your request for remote work. Right now if you are on a Showdown, you have to be on-site due to the TV cameras capturing your experience. For One-off Mentorships and Apprenticeship Mentorships, we will seek to offer remote options.

Only COLLEGE STUDENTS?

While we focus on college students, we do accept recent grads and individuals with serious grit and good portfolios who are over the age of 18 years-old. In the future, we hope to offer mentorships for high schoolers as well as adults seeking new job training.

WE DEVELOP Ultimate InternshipS

Our goal is to see value brought to companies through work that is developed during the internship. After the mentorship, the sponsoring company has the option to hire you on or to continue working with you through the studio.
