Internships & In-Service Learning

Gain Experience and Build Your Resume


Internship Program

Developed and managed by CEO, Patti Jewel, this program is designed to provide insight and help those seeking an online media career gain valued experience. During the 3-4 month internship, students will work hands-on in their chosen discipline. We have a vast network and want to help each student hone in on the specific topic and specialty that benefits their career choices.

Virtual Internship

We have implemented a virtual internship program with one-on-one online/voice meetings once per week, daily open chat on google, and delegated tasks on google drive.

This program will prepare interns for the future in employment to be able to manage projects virtually and be self-disciplined with assigned tasks in the work force.

The recent pandemic shows the need to be able to be effective virtually and our virtual internships will give interns the opportunity to showcase to future employers that they are capable and have gained experience in this space.
