Are you not yet sure of what you want to do or what kinds of opportunities are available to you in the writing and editing fields? Or do you know what you want to do, but need to get some on-the-job training? The English Department Internship Program (ENG 350) can offer you assistance in reaching or defining your career goals.
The classroom part of the internship, which is taught by the internship coordinator, is a seminar where you will talk about what you are experiencing in the workplace. The opportunity to discuss these experiences can help you to understand what you are going through and how to handle unusual situations.
You will also read and reflect on assigned articles related to workplace issues, learn from invited speakers from a variety of professions, develop jo search skills, participate in a mock interview, and produce a portfolio of your best work.
