Spring Internship Fair deadline approaching!

Internships are crucial in helping you land a job after college! With that in mind, there are still slots open for the Friday, Feb. 25 Spring Internship Fair, but you need to sign up now. The deadline is TUESDAY! Recruiters from 18 media outlets will interview students for summer/fall 2022 internships and jobs between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. in-person and remotely in Marshall.

Slots are still available for paid internship/freelance opportunities with Arizona Luminaria, a new non-profit news site that focuses on local and community journalism. More slots are available for the Arizona Daily Star apprenticeship class and Madden Media, where you can write travel articles! And don't forget Arizona Public Media, where you can produce stories for Tucson's NPR station, or the Tucson Weekly/Tucson Local Media

Some employers are available for a half-day, so sign up for limited slots now — and make sure your times don't overlap. Note: The SignUpGenius site is best viewed on your laptop or computer. If all the time slots are taken, please let me (Mike Chesnick) know, and I'll try to arrange an interview for you!

SIGN UP NOW

Recruiters are asking students to email cover letters, resumes and links/clips of their work by TUESDAY, FEB. 22. You can do background on each employer by clicking on the links below. The media outlets are:

If you're enrolled in or have completed JOUR 205, and/or have a year at the Daily Wildcat or a community college paper, you can apply for most internships (Arizona Daily Star apprentices need JOUR 306 or JOUR 506). If you have questions about whether to interview for a certain internship, contact Internship Coordinator Mike Chesnick or Academic Adviser Paloma Boykin.
