Are you a student who is Web savvy?
Are you looking for an internship that will help your future career in the changing world of journalism?
If so, check out Innovation in College Media’s internship opportunity.
The Internship has several advantages over traditional media internships. First, it’s sorta paid ($500 stipend), unlike many internships. Better yet, you can telecommute to it, which will you save you time and money (telecommuting is one of the most awesome things ever). Most importantly, however, you’ll have the opportunities to produce new media journalism:
The possibilities for editorial production are limited only by your imagination and energy. Some of the possibilities:
- Podcast interviews with media movers and shakers.
- Reviews of college media online initiatives.
- Maps and databases of college media online sites.
- Live video streams of conferences and/or interviews.
- Round-ups of relevant new media writing.
- And more.
Now, you do need to have social and new media skills. If you’re a student and you don’t, what are you doing? Trying not to be employable?
All you need to do to apply is to either send a copy of your resume and a 250 word essay on what your plans for the site would be to firstname.lastname@example.org. Better yet, you can do this on you blog.
You do have a blog, don’t you?
This is a fantastic opportunity to work on a real resume builder. You’ll also have a tremendous amount of flexibility in what you produce.
