Each summer we welcome interns from across the country to participate in our 10 week long paid internship program at our Home Office at the Navy Yard in Philadelphia. Interns will have hands on experience in the day to day life at our corporate headquarters. In addition to immersing themselves in the URBN culture, our program offers off site field trips, executive meet and greets, and brand events highlighting our company initiatives. Interested in following our summer intern class? Check out @urbn_internships and #myurbnsummer for a look at our present and past summer interns!
"I started working for Urban Outfitters two years ago. I was drawn into the independent, unique aesthetic UO evokes. Being a young aspiring artist and being around people that push “being yourself” through clothing and lifestyle - is something I was really inspired by. So, I applied for the sales associates position and took initiative toward my passion and then applied for the photo studio internship." - Stephanie DeFeo, Summer 2017 Urban Outfitters Photo Studio Intern @urbncommunity #myurbnsummer

I can’t believe I’ll be spending the summer at the @freepeople home offices as the Merchandising Intern! This time last year I was finding out that I didn’t get the very same internship and I am feeling so humbled and excited that my hard work paid off this year. Hello to my dreamy summer in Philly with @kaciecone! ✨💕#myurbnsummer

We consider Store Operations the hub of problem solving. Store Operations is all about supporting our field teams while working with our home office partners to provide clear and consistent information about our business initiatives. If you have the ability to approach a problem with curiosity and creativity- we're sure you'll find a good fit with Store Operations.
Hey there, I'm Kendall! So glad to give you a look into my day! As the 2016 Store Operations Intern my responsibilities include pitching and developing new weekly content for our internal app where we share information about UO events, styling, merchandising, and upcoming sales or promotions with our teams in the stores.
My day starts by skimming through our internal communications application to ensure that all communication for the day is published and looks flawless. Then I scroll through the UO website, Instagram, and blog for inspiration to build culture posts for our app. You never know where you will find inspo… I carry my mini sketch pad with me everywhere I go so I can jot down inspiration and ideas!
The Store Operations team collaborates closely with majority of the teams on campus so you can find me jumping around from building to building in order to make it to meetings on time! I so lucky to work with with teams like buying, merchandising, and customer experience. Team work makes the dream work afterall #TW=DW👌
Most of the time you can find me at my desk in Building 7 where I build out all of the daily communication blurbs. Having worked in a store for four years I am very passionate about employee relations and communication. Our employees in the field are the MVPs of Urban Outfitters so I am happy to be the liaison between home office and the stores. 💖💖💖
My favorite part of my job is being able to work and collaborate with people who are just as passionate about UO as I am. I cannot help but be inspired and motivated by all of the UO employees on daily basis. I hope you'll join our team!
