The Fine Arts Center Galleries are seeking public relations interns for spring and summer 2014 to help promote several outstanding exhibitions. These are volunteer positions with a good opportunity for diverse experiences in public relations, marketing and event planning. Responses to this experience from previous interns have been very positive, and some of our past interns have gone on to positions with museums and art centers.
Public Relations Interns are responsible for working with the Gallery Director and the Galleries team to compose and publish/distribute timely marketing/public relations material about the exhibitions. This includes news releases, public service announcements, facebook and web updates, maintaining the online Gallery calendar and updating files of Gallery activities. Writing ability, creative thinking and initiative are key, while basic computer and record keeping skills are also required.
These are flexible positions in terms of scheduling, and have the benefit of being on campus. They may receive 1-3 hours of credit, under the supervision of an SMC faculty member. Interested students may contact the Gallery Director at email@example.com.

Looking for a summer internship that offers real-world experience at a major daily newspaper? The Columbus Dispatch is accepting applications for its news, sports and features copy desks. Interns do exactly the same work our full-timers do: editing local and wire copy and graphics, and writing display text for A1, other section fronts and inside pages. The pace is quick and the standards are high, but the people are friendly and you’ll leave each night feeling like you accomplished something.
Because we have high expectations for our interns, the requirements – while few – are strict:
• Experience writing headlines and editing copy at another newspaper. A previous copy-desk internship is preferred but work at a college paper is welcome, too. If the extent of your editing experience comes from classes, you’re not ready for us yet, but we’d welcome you to apply in another year.
• A working knowledge of Associated Press style.
• A willingness to try creative headlines and join in discussions about important editing issues.
The positions: These are paid internships on the news copy desk, the features desk and the sports desk. The news copy desk handles stories for A1, the Nation & World section, Metro, Business, Health and Faith & Values. The features copy desk handles stories for Life & Arts, Travel, Home & Garden, Food and Weekender. The sports copy desk handles stories for the daily Sports section and some special sports sections.
How to apply: All applications must include a cover letter, resume, list of references and clips. Letters of reference also are welcome. Please specify which desks you are interested in. By mail: News Editor Danny Goodwin, The Dispatch, 34 S. 3rd St., Columbus, OH 43215. By email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Please put “summer internship application” in the subject line.
The deadline to apply is Dec. 15.
