Internships serve as a bridge between classroom knowledge and building an impressive resume and portfolio.
Working in a field relating to digital media allows students to gain an enhanced understanding of how to apply skills learned in the classroom to situations that will be faced beyond graduation.
The following resources are available to UF students:
Oiler Connection - As part of our ongoing efforts to enhance employment services to students, the Office of Internship and Cooperative Education Program has implemented a FREE online registration service. Once registered, you have 24/7 access to internship postings.
Job Fairs - Please view our Calendar of Events for upcoming events.
On-Campus Interviews - Watch for emails notifying you of the interviews.
Please contact the office of Internship and Placement for your required forms and additional information by calling 800-472-9502 or speak with a faculty member.
We strive to give you hands-on experience so that you will be able to seamlessly transition from graduation to a rewarding career in digital media.
The final days of my
internship were the happiest and the saddest days I’ve experienced,
during my internship. I was sad because I was leaving, I had spent so
much time there, and I had made great friends, and I didn’t want it to
end so quickly. I knew it was coming, but I still wasn’t ready for it
to end. I was happy, because then I found out that I wasn’t leaving. I
found out that they had decided to hire me part time, because they
needed an emergency fill in, and they thought it would be beneficial to
me, because if I got hired in there, I could be transferred anywhere
else I wanted to in the process.
During these last few days, I did more
voice work for WiLD 939, and they got me ready for on air time, because
they want to get me in their regular rotation of DJs (which I may add, is
coming soon!). The timing of this couldn’t have been better, just
because I came in right when they needed someone, and I was already
there, and they were very impressed with my work ethic and devotion to
radio, that they didn’t want to let me go that easily. So, meeting
dates have been sent, and I’m in the process of filing paper work, so
that I can be regularly employed.
As a small side note, hopefully The
University of Findlay isn’t planning on removing the internship from the
communication curriculum, and if they are, please tell them I said, “Do
not take it away! It’s the best thing that could have ever happened to
me!” My internship was so helpful, because it helped me realize that
my education here really helped me in the ‘real world’ and that I’m
ready to tackle corporate radio.
