Step 1: Email about an Offer
If after a discussion with some of our directors and a careful review of your resume, you will get an email from either the Executive Director or one of the program directors with an offer to join the Shenandoah Film Collaborative during the semester, which usually lasts about 11 weeks. Below is an example of the subject of the email and the text of the email.
Subject: Offer – Shenandoah Film Collaborative
Body of Email:
Thanks for talking with us, we would love it if you would come on board and join us for the semester. I’ll be following up soon with more information.
Thanks for talking with us!
Goal: It’s helpful if you reply back to this email to confirm your interest and to let us know that you’ve received it.
Step 2: Non-Disclosure Agreement
Goal: Review this document, ask questions and respond back during the date that is stated in the document.
You will be sent a non-disclosure agreement and an agreement regarding your initial internship with the Shenandoah Film Collaborative. We structure interns and volunteers a little differently. Volunteers are mostly for project-based tasks. For interns, we try to set up the session for an educational experience as we try to best prepare them for their intended careers. It’s important that you review this document, ask questions and respond back during the date that is stated in the document. This will come as a PandaDoc document. After signing the NDA, you’re officially a member of the Shenandoah Film Collaborative. We’re happy that you’re here.
We use Microsoft Teams, so it’s suggested that you download teams on your desktop and on your phone. To make sure you find Teams correctly, we are going to ask you to introduce yourself in the General Channel on Teams and tell us what was the last thing that you ate. If you’re not proud of what you ate, make it up and make it sound really fancy. It’s a fun icebreaker that we do. So we’ll go into how you can download the team’s apps now.
