Work and internship opportunities​​​​​​​​

Students in our program have many work opportunities in media both on and off campus.​


Internships serve as a bridge between classroom knowledge and building an impressive resume and portfolio.  


Jacob S. Miller is spending his summer as an intern with the Cleveland Browns. He is studying to earn a Bachelor of Arts in Public Relations with a minor in psychology.​


“One thing of note that I would pass on to any younger students considering internships: do not simply settle for doing the work that is given to you. Here at the Browns I have been encouraged to get in contact with and sit down with the higher management personnel to learn the inner workings of the ENTIRE organization. I’ll learn the finance side, the corporate partnership department, the content teams strategies, and even  talk to the president of the organization so that 1) I have the opportunity to network with people outside of my own department because you never know who you might meet and what connections they might have, and 2) the more you know about business as a whole the better you will be as an employee in any specific department for any company. “​

 

Jacob has the opportunity to film practice, player interviews, community events, fundraisers, post-practice press conferences and many other things.

Ellen Hoffman is a public relations major at The University of Findlay who is spending the summer as an intern at the Children's Museum of Findlay.  The focus of her internship is to gain experience with public relations and marketing.  "I make the flyers for all of the events and post them on social media and the website pages," she explained. "Sometimes I will go around and take photos of the kids having fun in the different exhibits."

Hoffman feels that she is definitely picking up a lot of different skills. She has learned new ways to promote the museum. For instance, she has been working with Google AdWords which provides more exposure on Google and makes the business easier to find in a web search.

Ellen says that during her time at the museum she has done a lot of different things beyond marketing and public relations.  "I have particularly come to love the reptiles here at the museum" she explained. She said that the experience has helped her overcome her fear of snakes all together.

Of this internship, Ellen said "I absolutely love working at The Children's Museum of Findlay and could not have asked for a better opportunity."

Ellen was also featured on the Humans of Findlay Facebook page.  Click here to read more about her determination.
