Does anyone know when the start date is for the Spring 2013 PIs? Or at least what week they're typically around? Thanks!

There's an intern here that extended her program, she was originally a Spring PI and she started in January.

Does anyone know the schedule of pi applicatIons? Do they go out before the holiday season or after the new year? From what I'm gathering it seems that most pis start in June. When does the Application for those typically begin?

Just to make sure, you can apply for the CP and some PIs at the same time, right? I'm graduating in December and want to apply for both for the spring.

Spring 2013 PI

For those who are applying to the Spring 2013 PI program, there is a Facebook page where you can talk with fellow applicants. Its a great place to meet people and have a support system for the craziness that lies ahead.

https://www.facebook.com/groups/237173299722218/

You can also find us through Disney Professional Internships-Spring 2013 on Facebook.

Can't wait to see you all there!

There is also a google+ page for Disney Professional Internships: https://plus.google.com/u/0/b/112693...12624836/posts

If you have any questions on the process, I blogged my process from the last round. While I didn't get an internship, I came darn close. I have spent the summer preparing for this round.

Im soooo glad I found this forum! I've been thinking of doing the CP for years, but I just recently starting seriously inquiring! I really need to do a PI to complete my college degree and so my fingers are crossed that I'll get in once I apply for the Spring 2014 PI! I know it's a long way off, but I'm starting to prepare from now

Have you done the CP? PIs are extremely difficult to get without being an alumni because preference will always be given to an alumni.

I think this truly depends on what PI you are trying for. If it is a non-alumni PI, then if you have excellent qualifications within the field you are trying for you will have the same advantage as anyone else.

This is definitely true. I originally thought the PIs were generally alumni of a CP, but I have met so many people here who have not ever done the CP, and in many fields as well- sales, marketing, engineering, programming. That you haven't done the CP won't necessarily disqualify you, it can only help in the sense that you can use it to network heavily as well as gain an understanding of the WDW products if you may need such a detailed understanding.
