CAAM Interns: Where are They Now?

CAAM Interns Michelle Fajardo, Lauren Lola and Phallina Kuch at the CAAMFest 2015 Press Conference on February 12, 2015.
Many of our former interns go on to work or study in a variety of fields including technology, media arts and policy.

Each year, 10-15 interns from the Bay Area and beyond work with the Center for Asian American Media to present CAAMFest and and our other year-round programs and initiatives. As one of the nation’s premiere media arts organizations, our internship program provides hands-on training and professional development for individuals seeking to develop or build a career in programming, marketing, fundraising, event planning, media arts and the non-profit sector. Participating interns also have the opportunity to meet and network with CAAM’s larger family of film and media makers, industry professionals and community organizations.

Upon completion of their internship with CAAM, many of our alumni go on to work for a variety of companies and fields. Some of our recent alumni now work at: Buzzfeed, Twitter, Facebook, and Asian Pacific Islander Cultural Center, to name a few. Others have decided to pursue graduate studies at institutions such as San Francisco State University, California College for the Arts, University of San Francisco and UCLA.

We’re currently seeking interns for the following teams:

  • Development and Communications
