Dream Careers Internship Opportunity in LA, San Fransico or New York.

Note from Dr. Lenze: Dream Careers is an internship broker. You pay the broker to help you get an internship. I generally do not post ads from brokers and did so in this case because one of our students endorsed it. Please keep in mind there may be significant additional costs in using Dream Careers and the vast majority of our interns get their internships without the help of a broker.

________________________________

If there are any students in Comm Media looking for an internship/needing one to graduate, there is a great opportunity where an internship is granted to just about anyone who applies. I had my past summer internship in LA, California with a television production company thanks to the Dream Careers Program. Any undergraduate can too! In any city of your liking, really. Or country. From Hong Kong to London, New York or San Francisco, you have the awesome opportunity to make solid connections in a place you may desire to work at in the future.

Trust me when I say, that if you are interested in getting out there and getting professional and real-industry experience, that this is a program you’re not going to want to miss. Even if you decide it’s something not to your liking, there’s no harm in taking a look!

As I said, this program really did change me and my outlook on my professional career goals. I know what it’s like to work in Hollywood and with major network companies. I even had the opportunity to talk with actors and produce original material for and alongside my bosses.

If any of this sounds interesting to you (again, you can find any sort of internship through this program whether it be in comics, writing, talent agencies, acting, production, public relations, marketing or more), don’t hesitate to check out this below link.

As a newly recruited member of the Dream Careers staff, I thought I should offer this great opportunity to others who are maybe looking to expand their horizons and get out there.

I loved my experience and found it useful to my practical skills in the creative field.

Prerequisite for Internship

There is a nasty rumor going around that completing COMM 475 is required BEFORE the internship begins. That is FALSE!!! You must complete COMM 395 before the internship begins. That includes those of you who have an “I” grade from Winter 2016. COMM 475 must be completed to graduate. It has nothing to do with the internship.

Lancaster Internship (Already Affiliated)

I’m reaching out today to see if there would be any interest from your students in an internship with BrandYourself. Last summer I oversaw ——————‘s internship with the Lancaster Barnstormers, and she was one of the best interns I had in the three years I ran the program. I am hoping to find more quality students for internships with BrandYourself.
BrandYourself is an online reputation management company in Lancaster, PA. We specialize in the suppression of negative Google results for our clients, but we have recently started branching out into pure branding campaigns for individuals and businesses. If you think you would have students who are interested, let me know and we can set up a call so I can give you some more details on what we are looking for. I look forward to hearing from you.
Thanks,
John Brennan

The Harrisburg Internship Semester (THIS)

If you are looking for an internship in Harrisburg, then this may be ideal! $4000 Stipend!!!!!!

THE HARRISBURG INTERNSHIP SEMESTER
Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education

General Information: The Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education (PASSHE) sponsors a semester-long internship program for outstanding undergraduate students from the 14 PASSHE universities. These interns work with selected professionals and legislators in various state government offices. Many interns have accepted policy or research positions in state government upon graduation. Interns are appointed and serve for one regular semester (either fall or spring). Interns participate directly in public policy formulation, analysis, and evaluation. Their work experience includes report and speech writing, research, and direct involvement with program initiation, implementation, and evaluation. The internship program provides students with a meaningful professional assignment as well as an enriching academic experience.

Seminar: Students also participate in an internship seminar that meets at the Dixon University Center and is supervised by a resident faculty member. The seminar integrates each student’s work experience with a rigorous academic component. The seminar exposes students to the latest scholarship on public policy formation and includes elements of the legislative process, executive operations, decision-making, governmental budgeting, public personnel administration, and more specialized state governmental topics. Each semester leading policy makers from the Commonwealth address the seminar and participate in roundtable discussions with students. The Secretary of Environmental Protection might well describe the department’s involvement in addressing global warming and other initiatives. The Governor’s policy chief could describe the process of developing major initiatives within the upper levels of administration. Lobbyists for various interest groups may speak about their profession and the issues for which they advocate. A regular feature of the seminar is having alumni of the program who are working in state government talk about their career paths. Under the guidance of the faculty director, students integrate the contribution of policy makers with the academic components of the seminar. Assigned readings, writings, discussions, and other activities augment the learning in the seminar.

Academic Credit: Each THIS intern has the opportunity to earn 15 credit hours toward his or her undergraduate degree consistent with the policies of the student’s home university and major department. Upon successful completion of the internship, each student’s grade will be included in his or her quality point average and made part of the academic transcript. The 15 credit hours includes 9 credit hours for the internship itself, 3 credit hours for the completion of a rigorous academic seminar, and 3 credit hours for a research project involving substantial analysis.

Selection Process: Interns may come from any academic major and are chosen through procedures determined on each campus. Applicants must submit an application form (attached), two letters of recommendation, a writing sample, a transcript, and a resume. Students must have earned at least 45 undergraduate credits and a 3.0 or higher grade point average at the time of application.

Stipend. Each student receives a stipend to help pay for the costs of room, board, and tuition. The stipend is currently $4,000 before taxes.

Campus Coordinator. Each campus has designated a faculty member to serve as a campus coordinator, who develops appropriate campus procedures for recruitment, along with the process for reviewing and recommending prospective student interns. The list of Campus Coordinators may be found on the THIS web site at www.passhe.edu/this.

Spring Career Fair

Good afternoon!

We’re writing to remind you of the IUP Spring Career Fair scheduled for Tuesday, 28 February 2017 in the Kovalchick Convention and Athletic Complex from 10 AM until 2 PM, which as of today has 96 employers registered to attend, the highest number we’ve ever had at IUP!

This fair provides an opportunity for students and alumni to explore full-time and part-time job and internship opportunities with a large variety of organizations, including criminology, healthcare, government, education, summer camps, safety, accounting and public service.  Please see the attached list of participating employers and organizations attending the fair and the types of positions they have available.

We recognize that you know the importance of student participation. Without the students, the employers will stop making the trip to IUP to recruit on campus. Students surveyed in previous career fairs have cited notification from their faculty as one of the primary reasons they attend. Please encourage your students to participate in the career fair, or if it works with your class schedule, assign them to attend or come to the fair as a class. Attendance vouchers will be available for students who attend the fair as part of a classroom assignment.

All majors and class levels are invited, and business or business casual attire is appropriate. Students are encouraged to visit the Career and Professional Development Center in Pratt 302 to meet with a career coach and update their resume. Drop-in Hours are held every Tuesday and Wednesday from 4:00-6:30 PM — students can stop by without an appointment to have their resume reviewed or to ask a quick career-related question.

Please contact 724.357.2235 if you have any questions.

Thanks and have an enjoyable afternoon and evening!
