2007 AHP Internship Handbook and Applications Available Online

SEPTEMBER 28, 2006 - The 2007 Internship Handbook and applications are now available online to college students who have an interest in horses and seek a career in equine publishing. The AHP Internship Program is a great way to provide students with the resume-building experience that’s so critical to today’s job market. Interns gain valuable hands-on real life experience and AHP members acquire additional help when and where they need it most.

AHP is the nation’s only non-profit professional association of over 450 members dedicated to promoting better understanding and cooperation within the equine publishing industry. Membership consists primarily of equine-related magazines, newsletters, and tabloids/newspapers as well as individuals, businesses and organizations serving the equine publishing industry.

AHP serves as the umbrella organization for the internship program and is responsible for creating the application process, providing the forms, the mailing list, and a directory of the participating AHP member publications and businesses. The Internship Handbook includes program guidelines, expectations and responsibilities of the intern and the AHP participating member, and a directory of AHP participants. Each listing includes the publication or company name, a brief description, types of internships offered, availability/duration, requirements, information on compensation and housing, and contact information. Students apply directly to the AHP member, who will choose the applicants that best meet their needs. AHP members may hire more than one intern.

American Horse Publications also offers students wishing to become involved in the equine publishing industry an opportunity to join the association and participate in other student programs.

Student Membership is open to high school, college, and graduate students for an annual fee of $25. Student Members receive a certificate of membership, an opportunity to attend the AHP annual seminar at a reduced registration fee, a free listing in the online and published versions of the AHP Membership Directory, the AHP newsletter, “AHP For the record,” and are eligible to enter the Student classes in the AHP annual Awards Contest.

A senior in high school or an undergraduate college student at the start of the 2006-2007 school year, with at least one semester before graduation, has a chance to win a cash award of $1,000 plus an all-expense paid trip to AHP's annual meeting and seminar to be held in Albuquerque, New Mexico, on June 21-23, 2007.The Student Award Winner will have an opportunity to meet leading equine publishing professionals and discuss career possibilities as well as receive an all expense paid trip hosted by Publishers Press to one of their Two-Day Customer Education Seminars in Louisville, Kentucky.
