The Cronkite School’s full-time director of career services works closely with students to find internships and jobs.
Mike Wong organizes six internship fairs on campus and oversees about 575 internships each year. He also teaches a required class in career preparation and connects students and alumni to jobs in their fields.
Cronkite faculty members, who maintain extensive professional contacts across the country and around the world, also are active in assisting students as they search for just the right internships or jobs.
All Cronkite students are required to complete at least one professional-level internship for credit, but many students do four, five or even six internships before they graduate. The school closely supervises internships to ensure students are getting a quality experience.
Each semester, the school sponsors three internship fairs, bringing in about 100 employers to interview students. Students also can learn about internship and job openings by following Wong on Twitter account http://www.twitter.com/mrconnect and by reading his weekly e-newsletter that lists part-time jobs and freelance and internship opportunities.
Wong also posts opportunities in the Cronkite School’s LinkedIn alumni group.
As part of their required internship, students must complete a seven-week career preparation seminar. The seminar covers resume writing, interviewing, networking and other aspects of an effective job search.
Students and employers should contact the Cronkite Office of Career Services for specific requirements and guidelines of participation in Cronkite’s internship program.
The following hold true for all Cronkite School internship programs:
