Potential Employers: This important information is for you!
Employers love to hire our students as interns. In fact, typically
we have as many internship possibilities as we do students
to fill those slots. So, if you’re interested in hiring
a student intern from the School of Journalism and Mass Communications,
consider the following:
1. Can you provide a meaningful supervised experience in a professional
work setting for students majoring in print, broadcast, public
relations, advertising or visual communications?
2. Pay a stipend or by the hour. Research shows that employers
who are willing to pay our students have a better chance of finding
the right intern!
3. Remember that students who are getting academic credit:
- Must be a junior or senior.
- Must have professional supervision in the student’s
area related to the student’s major.
- Must have a designated work space at the internship company.
- Must work a minimum of 140 hours.
- Must complete the internship while school is in session
(Fall, Spring or Summer semesters).
- Must get the internship approved in the career services
office before the internship begins.
4. Finally, please remember that while many of our students
find their own internships and complete them without credit and
without pay, only those who register their internship in the
career services office are eligible to receive USC liability
