Bunzi Processing // paid internship ASAP


We just got our internship program approved --- we are seeking qualified students asap (up to 2). Let me know if you have any interested candidates & any paperwork we may need to fill out to be compliant with the school's intern placement programs. This is a paid internship located in North Kansas City -- although not so glamorous on the design projects -- they would be my production assistant on upcoming catalogs & assist with product file-prep for print & web.

(A random caveat: candidate can not be a member of PETA or animal-rights activist & it's better if they are not a vegetarian, as we deal with the meat-processing industry & products) 


Let me know if you have any questions --- I'll be scouting for students on portfolio review day as well

from alicia: "We're looking for 3 UI (user interface) Design Apprentices to design a platform and develop it with the engineering apprenticeship team this summer, from June to August. It's an amazing experience, especially as a student or recent graduate: apprentices will get to work on a project from research to final deliverable, and also get experience working alongside developers and the Product Team at GOOD. If anyone has questions about the apprenticeship program, I'd be happy to try and answer them as well. I think that this is a great opportunity for KCAI students since so much of GOOD's design process and philosophy aligns with what you guys taught all of us."
