April 23, 2021 – Upcoming Events, Opportunities & Resources

From Jacki Banks, Arts, Media & Communication Advisor:

Okay, you’re not there quite yet.  But soon!

If you can believe it, study days are May 10 & 11 and exams begin May 12. (I KNOW.)

For those of you pursuing that ever elusive internship/job, know that opportunities are out there. But! There is a reason many career centers use the phrase “just-in-time” for jobs and internships in the May/June timeframe. For some industries – arts/media/communication, in particular – that is when you actually receive an offer.  Just-in-time.

Continue using the variety of techniques I’ve outlined this past academic year.  If you haven’t started, networking (new window) is your friend; informational interviews (new window) are incredibly useful.  Make sure your application package (new window) is ready to go, and review our interviewing guide (new window). Of course, we are all here, too.

Until then, LISTEN (new window) to what our May 2020 arts, media and communication graduates have to say about the job hunt and MEET  (new window)recruiters from Politico, The Phillips Collection, Discovery Education, and Simon Schuster and learn what they’re looking for.  (Pssst, Discovery Education is looking to hire a number of interns. Scroll down to the jobs/internship section to apply.)

Take care, Jacki
