We Love Interns!

We have opportunities for college students to intern with us year-round! Previous SFA interns have made an impact on the business and left with real-world samples to put in their portfolios. Some have gone on to graduate school, while others have found work in their field of interest.

So whether you are looking to gain experience to put on your resume, or need it for school credit, apply with us today! Send your resume to our General Manager, Amanda, at abirro@suffolkfencingacademy.com
