Work With Us

bootsThe Prom Show encourages confidence and self-expression among Canadian youth in, both, their special events and their everyday life.

As part of our commitment, we offer internships that facilitate self-directed learning and actual experience (not coffee runs and photocopying), and provide mentorship and independence.

When you join The Prom Show, your ideas are welcomed and our Committee will work together to bring them to fruition, providing a vast amount of viable experience, knowledge and skill to take with you as you continue on your career path.

Graphic PromoInternships are unpaid in the traditional sense, however, a profit-sharing partnership is available.
Details will be discussed with viable candidates.

A one-year commitment is required for all of these opportunities.
Hours of work depend on your skill level and the nature of the work; we are happy to consult with your schedule to maximize the experience.
Each position is a telecommuting opportunity, allowing any Canadian from any Province or Territory, to participate. This also requires serious discipline and focus, as working from home isn’t easy because of the countless distractions available.
Please give serious consideration to your ability to work independently before applying. 

We encourage all who join us to create and develop their own ideas and to collaborate with other Committee members to make them a reality in the most organic and genuine way possible.

Please read through each opportunity carefully and, if you meet the requirements and are able to commit to one year, send us an email telling us why you would like to work with us and how you fit within our mandate. Please include your name, email address and phone number – no attachments, please (include everything in the body of the email).
