Kent State University’s School of Journalism and Mass Communication (JMC) has
launched an internship database, designed to streamline communication between
the students and the intern employers.
Michele Ewing, associate professor in JMC and the public relations internship coordinator, helped create the database after recognizing an opportunity to use the Web to help better
connect students to potential intern employers.
“It’s designed to provide a place for JMC students to begin a search for internships,” said Ewing. “We’re trying to help students identify career opportunities and career tracks.”
JMC students can search for internships by major: advertising, electronic media/video, broadcast news, journalism (news/magazine/online), information design, photojournalism and public relations.
