BGSU Social Media Team Internships

BGSU’s Social Media Team is looking for people interested in Social Media, Marketing, Video, and Design to join our team. We have 2 internships available for spring in this department as well. 

 **Applicants for the internship program look better when they have already had experience on the team.** The team meets once a week for about 30 minutes and covers various events around campus throughout the week. These are available for the team members to sign up for online so they can find things that they are interested in that also fit their schedule. 

Many jobs require experience with a larger brand social media team upon graduation. This is a great thing to add to a resume and a fun team to be a part of. Interested students should email their resume to bgsusocial@bgsu.edu along with a brief description of their social media experience.

CHIPS QUINN SCHOLARS PROGRAM FOR DIVERSITY IN JOURNALISM

The Chips Quinn Scholars Program for Diversity in Journalism offers students hands-on training and mentoring by caring news veterans. Nearly 1,400 men and women have been named Chips Quinn Scholars since 1991, making it the largest and most enduring diversity initiative of the Newseum Institute.

The program’s aim: Provide training and support that will open doors to news and information careers and bring greater diversity to the newsrooms of the United States.

The program, operated by the Newseum Institute and funded by the Freedom Forum, matches qualified candidates with participating news organizations from across the country for 10- to 12-week paid internships. Selected scholars participate in an intense, one-week orientation/multimedia training workshop at the John Seigenthaler Center in Nashville, Tenn., in preparation for their internships. The training in Nashville is paid for by the Newseum Institute.

The annual application deadline is in October. College juniors, seniors, graduate students and recent graduates with majors in journalism or career goals in journalism are eligible to apply.

The program was founded by John C. Quinn, former deputy chairman of the Freedom Forum, and his late wife, Loie, who wanted to honor their son, John “Chips” Quinn Jr., who was an upstate New York newspaper editor when he was killed in an automobile accident. For further information, contact Program Director Karen Catone at kcatone@newseum.org or 202/292-6271.
