March and April are busy months as students figure out where to apply. We go over (and over!) their resumes and cover letters and talk about interviewing strategies. Then, we wait to hear if they've been accepted.
But the best month is this one, when I get to hear what they've done during the summer. Internships are often a life-and-career changers for students.
This summer, our students interned all over the place, from the Student Press Law Center in Washington, DC, to WBUR, WCVB, WGBH in Boston, Elle magazine in New York. Artscope in Boston. Each summer, I ask everyone to post about his or her experience, and, below you can find the accounts from this summer.
If you're a UMass Journalism student, I hope you'll consider an internship next summer. Come to my office and let's talk.
