The Disney College Program totally changed my life! And now I want it to change yours too! Today I'm checking in for my second Disney College Program, and I am SOOOOOO excited! A week ago, Disney opened up applications for the Fall Disney College Program, I plan to extend through the fall, and I want you to join me! Why should you do the Disney College Program?
You'll make amazing friends!
I've made a lot of wonderful friends in my lifetime, but the friends I made during my Disney College Program are some of the best, and everyone I know says that! I made friends that support me in my faith, my daily life, and in my career. Often, when I move someplace new I lose touch with many of my friends, these friends are so faithful to maintain our friendship, we talk every day!
You'll learn a lot about your career!
When I started the Disney College Program I was an education major, but still very undecided on how I wanted to go with that, having changed the details of that degree three times. I didn't like my job experience in schools, but loved my job experience at a coffee shop where I got to talk to and take care of customers every day. I always swore I'd never pursue a business degree, but after my Disney College Program I decided to change my degree to Hospitality and Tourism. I realized that there was a job that linked my love of child-like fun and caring for people.
You'll gain great job experience!
How many college students can say they've worked for a Fortune 100 company? You can, if you do the Disney College Program! Many companies use Disney's management and guest service models, they all know the value of a Disney employee. Whether you're applying for a barista job to help pay for school, an internship for your degree, or a professional job after college, this experience looks great on the education and experience sections of your resume!
You'll learn a lot about yourself!
I could go on for days about how I grew during my Disney College Program. Besides discovering my college major, I've learned that I really love physical labor and being actively involved. Not only did I learn about myself, but I grew and changed, I conquered my fear of roller coasters, and learned how to budget (this was my best semester financially), and learned how to cook good food for myself.
You can get college credit for it!
Many colleges offer credit for the program, of course if yours doesn't you can get credit from the University of New Mexico (even if you don't go there!).
You'll have the experience of a lifetime!
Who else gets to spend 4-12 months with free access to Disney World? You'll also get to learn a lot about the company, and every day is like a backstage tour. You'll also have access to classes and networking events only available for program participants, and special events!
Disney didn't pay me to say these things, I just love the Disney College Program that much. I don't say these things just so you apply for the program and need my blog. I didn't write this post just because I needed a post for today. I wrote this post because I really do want you to join me this fall in Florida!
Have I convinced you yet? Of course I have! Apply today and join me in Florida in June or August! Have a friend you'd like to join you? Share this with them so they'll have the experience of a lifetime with us too! (Maybe you'll even get to be roommates!)
