ASI Summer Internship Program

New Concepts. Fresh Outlook. Future Employees.

Interns provide new ideas and a fresh perspective, helping your company grow and adapt. They often become candidates ready-made to fill future openings in your company, saving you the time and effort it would take to train someone new. By attracting more millennials to promotional products, you’re also helping the industry grow.

That’s why ASI® developed the Summer Internship Program 4 years ago. The process is simple: you hire a summer intern and ASI helps them get started with:

FREE ESP® access for the summer (expires 10/1/19)

Webinars that provide an industry overview

An ASI gift pack of promotional items

Invitation for your intern to attend ASI Show® Chicago
(Travel expenses not included)

Certificate of completion

3 summer interns will be chosen based on their outstanding internship essays and awarded a $1,000 scholarship!

We’re here for you, every step of the way.
