College students wishing to apply for an internship at the 2019 NATPE Market & Conference may submit their application materials online.

Submission deadline:  November 5, 2018.

Each year, college student interns assist with information distribution, registration, seminar seating, publications and other assignments that help the event go smoothly. The conference is not open to the public thus the student interns receive a unique, behind-the-scenes view of the television industry.

Companies and individuals involved in buying, selling, developing, financing, advertising, marketing or licensing content, implementing technology, exploiting rights, or leveraging media assets, attend the annual NATPE Market & Conference each January.

  • Interns put in long hours, including walking and standing for extended periods, but each student has an all-access pass to the conference.
  • For 2019, interns would be needed in Miami from Saturday, January 19th until Thursday evening, January 24th.
  • The conference is held at the Fontainebleau Hotel Miami Beach.
