Creative Opportunities Newsletter
June 2, 2022 – Upcoming Events, Opportunities & Resources
I know your WHOLE summer will not likely be spent on the beach, casually reading a book, toes in the sand. For many of you, this is when you work to earn money for the academic year AND try to fit in an internship, second job, or volunteer position. (If this is you – and you find yourself exhausted trying to balance it all – schedule an appointment with me, and we’ll talk through what’s realistic.)
My fondest hope is that you have time to relax. To that end, this edition of the newsletter focuses on learning, a relatively passive activity that works well on days when movement seems all but impossible. (It’s 93 in DC today, folks, and The Weather Channel informs me that, with humidity, it feels like 95.)
Check out the cool workshops, trainings and programs below. If you’re up for some additional reading, my TBR includes Future of Skills: LinkedIn’s data tells us how jobs are changing, and what skills workers may need to stay competitive in the new world of work and The Uneven Climb From College to Career: Achievement gaps are about more than who goes to college and who graduates (The Chronicle). I’m also planning a deep-dive into Vault. Specifically, I want to explore their internship rankings and their VERY THOROUGH guides to advertising, entertainment, journalism, public relations, performing arts and more.
Lastly, for those of you who haven’t landed a summer internship, DO NOT DESPAIR. When you scroll down to the jobs and internships section, check out the number of summer internships still available. And that’s just a few highlighted positions from the total available on Handshake.
Have a wonderful June! The creative newsletter will return in July.
