Journalistics Internship Experiment

I wrote “Do You Need an Internship to Get a Job?” back in May and hid a subtle offer in the last paragraph: if you need work experience, I’m happy to have you as a guest blogger over the summer. This low exertion internship seemed like the perfect option for students without internships lined up for the summer – or those looking to add even more experience to their resumes. When you consider most of the people reading this blog could help them get their first job, it seemed like a fair offer.

I didn’t expect to get 20 responses within 24 hours (and a hat tip to the students at Penn State – several participated in this program). Over the past two months, I’ve been working with a group of students and recent graduates on their posts.

I’ll be featuring their posts over the course of the next few weeks (starting today) and am very impressed by some of the content they created. I hope you’ll join me in commenting on their posts and congratulating them on work well done.

Each post includes the author’s bio with some background on the progress they are making in their studies, or what they are looking for in their first job. Feel free to connect and help them grow as professionals. Thanks for your help.
