Communication Internship Workshop

The Department of Communication student-run Communication Association will hold its annual Internship Mixer on Tuesday evening, February 24, 2015, in Corwin Pavilion from 6:30 to 8:30 pm.

Employers who are seeking interns or entry-level employees or who simply want to learn more about the internship-mentor relationship are invited to join us. The event is free to all employers and Communication Association members.

Please contact Kayla Miller (, the Communication Association Director of Events, for more details. 

At last year’s event, the Comm Association hosted a mix of 100 students and 30 employers, ranging from large corporations to midsize local organizations and sole proprietorships. Among the professionals were several successful Comm alumni including Ken Sterling of Big Speak, Sara Tilotson and Alexandria Banks of Ontraport, Lauren Dorsey of Target, and Cathleen Dunne of Enterprise. Advice from a panel of 4 employers and 2 interns helped students understand the process of developing productive intern-mentor relationships. Introductions of all professional followed, before opening the floor for an hour of highly productive networking.

Rachel Cansler, the Communication Association Director of Events, brought these employers and students together, structured the panel and moderated the session. Approximately 100 communication majors came to network and to hear the panel speak on the mutual benefits of the internship relationships.

A special thanks goes to the Department of Communication Alumni Council and to Comm alumnae, Ken Sterling, for helping to underwrite this event.
