Career Services: Job Search Support Group

Posted: September 26, 2014 by joshuasites in Jobs, Student groups
Are you a College of Arts & Sciences senior graduating in December or May? Have you started your job search? Would you like the opportunity to share your experiences with your peers?
 
If you are starting your job search or just beginning the process and would like some additional guidance and support during the process, join us for a unique opportunity to talk with your peers about the mistakes, pitfalls, fears, and successes of the job search. Sometimes talking with your friends is the best way to learn what works and what not to do. This group will cover the important pieces of the job search including resumes, cover letters, interviewing, and transition, but is also an opportunity to talk with people who are in the same position as you. You will get ideas and advice from your peers as well as support from the Arts & Sciences Career Services and trained counselors.
 
If you are interested in joining the group or have additional questions, please contact Alison Smith (alelsmit@indiana.edu).
When: Wednesday for 5 sessions starting October 15 and ending November 12th , 5:30-7:00 pm

IRTS 2015 Summer Fellowship Program

Posted: September 24, 2014 by joshuasites in Internships, Scholarships

2015 Summer Fellowship

When: May 31 – August 1, 2015
Where: New York, New York
Application Deadline: Sunday, November 2, 2014, midnight EST

Expense-Paid Opportunity: Travel, housing, and living allowance included.

Eligibility: Extremely competitive. Students must be college juniors, seniors, or graduate students as of April 2015.

Accomplished students from all majors (including math, computer science, business, marketing, communications, etc.) are encouraged to apply.

The Summer Fellowship Program, the most notable student out-reach effort of IRTS, teaches up-and-coming communicators the realities of the business world through an expense-paid fellowship, which includes practical experience and career-planning advice. Each year college juniors, seniors and graduate students are selected nationwide to participate in the nine-week Summer Fellowship Program.

The Program begins with an extensive one-week orientation to broadcasting, cable, advertising, and interactive media. Fellows have a rare opportunity to question industry professionals at panels, lectures, and group discussions. They also take related field trips and learn career planning, networking and interviewing skills by attending industry social functions.

Following this first week, Fellows gain full-time “real world” experience at New York-based media corporations to which each is assigned for the duration of the nine-week Fellowship. Fellows are then able to reinforce or redefine specific career goals before settling into a permanent job in the electronic media industry.
