“The world, things, and our way of thinking change because of the people that followed their passion. I am a strong believer that we can make a better place when we follow what feels right inside and follow through with that thought. Create and share with others what tickles you, for a better world.” - Jill Pillot
For Full Time College Students in Fashion Programs only or Graduates:
Ricochet offers many different hands-on internship and apprenticeship programs for everyone. Internships are available for those who have an interest in different aspects of the fashion industry. A minimum of 10 hours a week is required, and a total of 180 hours. The times are flexible, but you must be reliable.
Although this is a non-paid Internship , you will gain useful knowledge that will help you grow while working with us. Commission can be made as soon as you help generate revenue (through retail sales, participation in street fairs and fashion shows). This is a team community working environment, and as we grow you will benefit too.
Other compensation includes: College and high school credit (to be set up once approved through your school), a letter of recommendation, a certificate of completion, and a gift certificate to our store. Ricochet is a company that prides itself on giving back to the community and working with people from all walks of life, so all hard-working individuals are welcome.
Build your self esteem and skills in a creative and nurturing environment!
