Participate in i2i: Interview to Internship, where company representatives come to the Department for a few hours to conduct several 15-minute interviews with UW Comm students in CMU 102. Come dressed to impress with resume in hand for a shot to intern with leading Seattle companies.
The internship program is a great experience for students to learn about the tools available to help disseminate news and information to the media and target audiences. Students receive credit for this internship. An intern develops basic technical knowledge in audio, video, or lighting equipment and procedures, through readings and independent research. The intern gains instructional, organizational and teamwork skills by providing a video tutorial of equipment of their choice. No previous experience is necessary.
