Overview

Are you good at social media? Do you want to learn how to produce a behind-the-scenes video? Do you want to help organize an event?

If so, we need 4-5 Lens Collective interns!!! All IMC and Journalism students are welcome to apply for this unpaid internship. If you want to learn how to do things, we can help. It’s more important to have a good attitude.

Dates of internship are: Sept 16, 2019 – Oct 28, 2019, and comes with a formal letter of recommendation

Hours needed to work – 5 hours per week until the workshop weekend, then most of the day from October 23-26, 2019

Interns must be available to work pretty much all day during the workshop week of October 23-26, 2019 (don’t worry, it’s not a game day weekend). An official letter to professors will be provided as this is a school-sponsored event. Only serious inquiries please.

Some experience in photography and video editing is a plus, but we can teach you those skills. Social media skills are a must, creating spreadsheets to keep content organized is needed, reaching out to contacts for requested materials/information. Students must be dependable, communicative and have the ability to work well with others. This is a great opportunity for practical skills and to help build more experience for your resume.

Students will be able to attend activities and all workshops. Looking for interns to help promote this multimedia workshop. Pulitzer-Prize and Emmy-winning journalists on campus and you’ll be doing their official introductions. You will make sure they are where they need to be. Students will be taught how to update our website, take behind-the-scene photos and produce a video, help organize meals, promote the workshop on campus and in town, so the community can attend the program. You will be part of the inner circle of organizing this amazing event and you’ll network with students and professors from American University, Auburn University, Penn State University, Ball State University, Ohio University and Mississippi State.
