Are you getting close to graduation? Then you'll need to take MEDIA250 Internship in Media. The course description states you need permission from the course admin to register. What you might not know is that there is another prerequisite; your internship needs to be setup BEFORE getting permission.
Below are a few tips for finding that media internship.
- Visit the Career Center to get help with your resume. They also offer assistance in finding internships.
- Talk to your teachers and Digital Media Arts Administration, they may have connections or know of an internship that will match your passions.
- Attend the Digital Media Design Club Speaker Series and Mixers. This is a great way to meet industry professionals and talk to fellow classmates. Often, internships opportunities have more than one opening. Your fellow classmates who have secured one of those openings may be your ticket in.
- Check out local community meet-ups, festivals and career talks:
- AIGA Seattle's Jump Start. If you can't make this one, check back often, they may offer it again!
