Career Wardrobe offers customer service training in a supportive environment that will prepare our interns for careers in sales and/or service. Applications are open three times per year.

Eligibility:   Internships are open to the public, with preference given to those pursuing careers in retail or fashion and/or enrolled in job training, re-entry, or educational (high school grades 11-12 or college) programs and/or referred through Career Wardrobe’s Referral Partner Members.  Interns should be able to commit to work 20 hours per week for the 12-week period, which may include evenings and Saturdays.

Interns will be paid at stipend of $2,400 (based on $10/hour for up to 20 hours per week for 12 weeks) paid out twice a month. They will also be eligible for in-store discounts during their internship period.
