Frequently Asked Questions About CMST Internships
Find an internship? Talk to friends and family. Talk to recent graduates. Come to events where we host alumni or ask us about alumni contacts. Check career-related sites for job postings in your area of interest (such as public relations, human relations, or marketing, for instance) and contact these businesses to inquire if they also have internships. Often, if a company can't find the right candidate for a job, you can fill the spot temporarily as an intern or assist the person currently covering the job. Search the Yellow Pages for communication-related companies in the cities in which you are interested in finding an internship. Look at our internship board outside PAC 215. Or, if you don't have time for any of that, try one of the web sites listed under “Where can I find...?”
