Hauppauge, NY – December 2012 – Eyewear industry leader ClearVision Optical has been recognized for its innovative internship program with two Web features in top ranking national blogs.  These honorary mentions, on the Intern Queen and Eye of the Intern sites, reinforce the company’s commitment to providing a unique and integrated internship experience that will prepare students for the real world by offering real world experience.  The holistic program serves up unique components such as training, philanthropy, networking and corporate responsibility, coupled with supplying teaching skills for particular jobs or professions.  Following is a peek of two placements, which includes testimonials from former and current ClearVision Optical interns, a “Real World” Video, an interview the President David Friedfeld and more!

Intern Queen:  “Our interns help us in all aspects of our business – everything from working with the designers as they create our fashionable eyewear, to writing and blogging for our social media outreach, to managing sales analysis for all of our products…and everything in between (accounting, business, …you name it!)  With a ClearVision internship, you don’t feel like a student.  You feel like a real employee.  You make decisions.  You give your opinions.  And you’re valued.”  

Eye of The InternPresident David Friedfeld talks about ClearVision Optical’s exemplary intern program, its holistic approach, what ClearVision looks for when hiring an intern and more!  “Our intern program strives to attract and retain top caliber students (undergraduate and graduate) who have demonstrated excellence in their studies, are socially conscious, and have shown a commitment to giving back to others.” 

The program also includes “The Intern Video” project, an opportunity for creative expression by the interns themselves.  Each year, the interns work with ClearVision’s marketing team to develop the video, providing valuable exposure to current trends in marketing, public relations, social media and advertising.  In 2012, the team capitalized on current trends by creating a parody of the widely popular song “Call Me Maybe,” called “Hire Me Maybe”, and  “The Real World: ClearVision Interns”.  Both videos can be viewed on the ClearVision Optical Youtube Channel:

ClearVision Optical has been widely-recognized for its internship program and has received countless accolades, including a feature in Newsday, recognition by One Day, One Job, and receipt of Dowling College’s Internship Program “Employer of the Semester” award.  For more information on the ClearVision Intern Program, visit Like us on Facebook at
