Toledo Business Journal internships available

The Toledo Business Journal is seeking an unpaid intern for the Summer, and for the Fall 2017 semester, to assist with producing our monthly newspaper. Most work involves transcribing telephone interviews into a typewritten document, but other tasks may include retouching photos using Photoshop, preparing real estate reports, and searching for press releases. Interns will also be asked to prepare a business news story using internet research that may be published in the newspaper with their byline.

Candidates should be able to come into our office, located at 5660 Southwyck Blvd., for two hours twice a week. This schedule is extremely flexible to accommodate classes and other activities, but it is a good opportunity to gain professional experience.

Interested students should send a resume and writing samples to editor@toledobiz.com, or call 419-865-0972, ex. 21, for more information. We will then conduct a job interview at our office.

Are you an English major (or a major in another discipline) who is interested in an internship that puts your critical thinking and writing skills to good use? Do you want to learn more about coordinating interdisciplinary activities for campus and community audiences?

The Institute for the Study of Culture & Society supports faculty collaboration across traditional disciplinary boundaries, and serves as an incubator for innovative research and teaching. ICS supports the academic goals of the University by helping faculty to develop, communicate, and disseminate their scholarly and creative work to constituencies across campus and throughout the region. With our public events and outreach efforts, we bring issues of vital national and global importance to Northwest Ohio, and, in turn, bring community knowledge back into the university.

Interns at ICS work approximately 10 hours a week in the ICS offices, planning ICS Fellows talks, workshops, the Spring Speaker Series, and other high-impact events. ICS Intern tasks and responsibilities may also include:

  • Drafting text for emails, press releases, invitation letters, posters, and other essential documents

ICS interns are eligible to take ENG 4890 (ENG 5890 for graduate students) or AS 4890 (AS 5890) for up to three credit hours; students may be able to continue interning for a second semester. If they would prefer to do the internship without course credit, students may sign up for COOP 050, and the internship will still appear on their transcript.
Interns must have basic Microsoft Office skills; familiarity with Adobe Acrobat and/or Photoshop are preferred skills.

Application Materials are due March 20, 2017. Please submit via email to ics@bgsu.edu the following:
