Pentacle strives to create a program experience that is useful for both the company and intern by matching them based on similar interests and needs. Participating companies receive an intern for 10 hours a week over an 8 week time commitment.

Program Benefits:

  • A qualified intern who has been carefully selected through an extensive recruitment process
  • Three dedicated Pentacle staff personnel who are committed to the mentorship and guidance of your intern
  • A clear Work Plan outlining the responsibilities and upcoming tasks of your intern

Because of the structure of the program, you will be working with an intern who has a greater sense of commitment and accountability than someone who you might select outside of CLD.

How to Apply:

  1. Download and complete the Company Questionnaire.
  2. Submit Questionnaire to Alex M Schell at
  3. You will promptly receive a response with further instructions.
