Work at CTA

Internship Program

Our internship program provides students and recent graduates the opportunity for true professional growth and development.

Interns at the Consumer Technology Association (CTA)™ work on interesting and dynamic projects, receive professional training and development, and work with professionals at all levels.  Our 30 annual internships cover all aspects of our business, including marketing, communications, human resources, government affairs, conferences, finance, information technology, membership, business administration, sales and many more.

All internships are paid and most are full-time. To help ensure that our interns have the best foundation in their chosen discipline, internships last six months to one year.

With nearly 20 percent of our staff starting their CTA careers as interns, our internship program is our most valuable recruitment and talent pipeline.
