Finding and Applying to Internships
Tips for Getting a Head Start on Your Career
Kean University students acquire broad knowledge, professional experience and a solid foundation for career success in the exciting fields of media and communication at the university's School of Communication, Media and Journalism. And it's highly recommended that at least one (1) internship be a part of each student's experience.
To date, communication majors can have a variety of for-credit, not-for-credit and paid internship experiences. To be eligible for a 3 credit internship, students must have at least a 3.0 GPA and 75 credits or more completed. For more information, please contact Allison Edgley, Director of Internships (CMJ), as some other criteria may apply. All of our School's current internship opportunities can be seen here.
While it's true that resources like CareerBuilder, IdeaList, Indeed, Internships.com and Monster can help a student's internship (or job) search, for communication majors we recommended using the following tools too.
