Learning outside the classroom on your Disney Program

What’s one thing that many Disney Internships and Programs alumni would change about their program? Numerous alumni have told us they wished they had taken full advantage of the learning component!

In addition to the classes offered during the spring, summer and fall terms of your program, the Disney Internships and Programs Education team in Florida has a wide variety of educational and professional development opportunities available too. The great part about these offerings is they are open to everyone, and no advance registration is required!

Career Development Workshops

Career Development Workshops provide program participants with the opportunity to work on professional skills they can use in their current role, as well as future professional opportunities. These workshops include the following:

  • Résumé Writing
  • Acing the Interview
  • Networking 101
  • Personal Branding
  • Presentation Skills: Presenting with Confidence
  • Professionalism

Career Development Workshops are offered regularly, so take the opportunity to develop yourself professionally during your program.

 

College Program Alumni Speaker Series (CPASS)

Each CPASS event spotlights College Program alumni who have continued with a career at The Walt Disney Company. These events provide an opportunity to engage with leaders and learn about their career paths, necessary skills required to succeed in their field, as well as words of wisdom for students working toward their individual goals.

 

Showcase Events

Learn about the amazing work that a specific department of The Walt Disney Company does or learn an awesome new skill! In June, cast members from Guest Relations provided participants with insight into the history and services of Guest Relations. In July, the Education team hosted an event in which Corrie Kelly, a former Instructor and current Cast Activities Manager, taught participants the art of towel animals!

Each of these sessions provides the unique opportunity to gain deeper insight into a topic related to The Walt Disney Company or a department at the Walt Disney World Resort. Be on the lookout for more Showcase Events this fall!
