Since 1981 Disney Internships and Programs has represented a life-changing experience for hundreds of thousands of students. Join Joe Iglecia-Scholl, a recruiter with Disney Internships and Programs, to learn more about the program components and why it could be the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for you.

The event will begin with an informational session that goes into the ins and outs of the Disney Cultural Exchange Program at Walt Disney World. This presentation is mandatory for anyone who is interviewing and in the past, we have been able to open this up to students from outside of RMIT if they are available and interested in joining. The presentation is around 45 minutes with 15 minutes for Q&A at the end.

Students should come if they are interviewing for a position with Disney for the January intake, or if they are interested in learning more about how they can work for Walt Disney World on the Cultural Exchange Program in the future.
