About College Works Painting Internship
COVID-19 Update

This is a very interesting year for our Student Interns to begin their entrepreneurial career. We are adapting to this stressful and very different environment by adjusting our standard sales procedures to include virtual options and no-contact sales procedures. Our production staff will begin operating in May and will be trained on safe distancing, CDC safety guidelines, as well as our own rigorous production standards. And, as always, our #1 priority is ensuring the safety and health of our customers and employees by following federal, state, and local recommendations and any new guidelines as set out by the CDC located on their website.

We plan to proceed with our production schedule as we remain an essential service in nearly every market we operate. If in your state or city, there is an isolation order excluding painting and waterproofing as an essential service, we will produce the job when the order is lifted. Our goal is to make sure every home is protected before the season is over.

Here is a summary of our revised procedures:
• Mandated remote working: All College Works Painting offices are operating remote-only, even in jurisdictions where this is not required. 
• Instituted company-wide no contact policy: All members of the College Works Painting community are to refrain from handshakes, fist bumps, or any other personal contact with customers.
• Rolled out “Virtual Estimates”: This enables our Student Interns to conduct full inspections and estimate projects with no personal contact.
• Enhanced cleaning protocols: Wiping down surfaces with appropriate cleaning products multiple times per day.
• Following CDC guidelines: We are instructing all College Works Painting team members to adopt appropriate self-care including washing hands, avoid touching their faces, limiting time in public areas, and practicing social distancing.
• Zero-Tolerance Illness Policy: Mandating all associates who feel ill to stay home and seek appropriate medical attention.

Thank you for your understanding and for your effort in working with us. Like all Americans, we are doing our best to navigate these difficult times and we appreciate your support. College Works Painting is building the future leaders of tomorrow, both in the good times and in challenging times like what we are all facing together right now. We look forward to demonstrating how we provide a different experience.

With appreciation,

The College Works Painting Executive team  


College Works Paintings provides college and university students a unique, life-transforming opportunity to build business management and leadership skills, hands-on. The internship empowers students to run their own local businesses, manage their own crew of people, and provide a much-needed service within their communities - while earning money as well as invaluable experience. 

College Works Painting internship allows students to not only gain valuable work experience, but to help finance their college educations as well.


Each selected manager will oversee the marketing, sales, management, and customer relations of a house painting business in their hometown.

It's very important the student demonstrates excellent communication skills and a tremendous work ethic.
