How to find an internship
Check with the faculty for leads: We keep a list of places to look, and we send regular emails about internship opportunities.
Prepare your resume and portfolio: Prospective employers expect to see a crisp, well-crafted resume with absolutely NO typos, as well as writing samples, preferably published work. To get those clips, we suggest writing for The Signal or other campus media .
Visit the Career Center: It offers a number of resources, including workshops and tips on internships, resumes and interviews. The office also sponsors career fairs each semester.
Where to find internships:
If you know which media outlets or other companies you’d like to intern with, look at their websites for application information (often under a “Careers” tab). Here are some other resources:
New Jersey Collegiate Press Association: Newspapers throughout New Jersey hire college students for internships, both in the summer and during the school year. In addition, the New Jersey Newspaper Foundation places several college students through its internship/scholarship program. http://www.njpa.org/foundation/internships.html or www.njcollegepress.org
TCNJ Office of Career Services: Career Services holds periodic “Introduction to Internships” workshops. Once you complete the workshop you will receive a password to LionsLink, TCNJ’s on-line internship listing and resume collection service. http://career.pages.tcnj.edu/students/internships/
