This Way Ahead

Summer Internships at Banana Republic, Gap and Old Navy


Program description

Gap Inc. is partnering with CONNECT2Careers (C2C) to bring their This Way Ahead internship program to San Diego!

This Way Ahead participants will be provided with 10 weeks of pre-internship training—including insider sessions led by Banana Republic, Gap and Old Navy store managers—followed by a guaranteed interview for a summer internship at a Banana Republic, Gap or Old Navy store. Stores will then select interns for a paid summer internship for 12 hours per week. Interns will be mentored by Gap Inc. employees for the duration of their internship, be provided with a gift card for work clothing and gain valuable experience as they explore career options in retail.
