Internships are often the gateways to successful careers in journalism, public relations and other communications fields because they offer students opportunities to gain experience, sharpen skills and build professional networks. Yet many students don’t know where to start when it comes to internships or they find it difficult to make the time for these career enhancing and potentially life changing experiences. JPR Internship Week is designed to get students ready for JOUR 498: Internship, a requirement for all majors, as well as offer inspiration, ideas and career success tips from JPR professionals and recent JPR grads who kickstarted their skyrocketing careers with internships.
All Sessions 11:00AM-12:00PM
|Monday, November 30||Preparing for JOUR 498: Internship|
Emma Daugherty, Professor and JOUR 498 Instructor of Record
This session is designed to get students ready for JOUR 498: Internship, whether they’re seniors enrolled in JOUR 498 this spring or new transfer, first-year or sophomore students. JOUR 498 Instructor of Record Professor Emma Daugherty will explain the nuts and bolts of JOUR 498—a class that generates the most questions from students and is a degree requirement for all JPR majors. She will also address how the pandemic has affected internships, and there will be plenty of time for student questions about JOUR 498.
