On-Campus IUP Internships

Currently, the two on-campus internship opportunities for our students this summer are WIUP FM and Dr. Piwinsky’s television production group. Both of these opportunities are competitive, meaning you will have to interview and be considered a top candidate to earn one of the limited number of slots available.

These opportunities should not be considered backups as they are competitive and both are looking for top quality interns. If you want one of these slots, apply immediately with either Matt Albright for WIUP FM or Dr. Piwinsky.

What Kind of Internship Do I Need

The internship must meet the following criteria!

  • It must be a job in a communications related field.
  • It must be on site. There must be a physical internship site where you work full time. You may not work a “traveling” internship, a “door-to-door sales” internship, or a “work at home” internship.
  • You must be under the direct supervision of someone who has the communications related job title you are seeking. You may not work for a business manager but you may work for a communications director.

If these conditions are not met, the internship will not be approved.

In What States May I Intern?

I received a great question this morning about internships in other states. The rumor was that IUP students could not intern in California. I’m pleased to tell you that IUP students may intern in all 50 states, though there are limits and conditions on interning in Florida. This situation changes all the time so don’t rely on old information. If you have a questions about internships, see me or post them to this site. I’m here to help you!
