Don't just sit there, GET INVOLVED!

The following is a note from Director of Student Careers and Opportunities Eric Minor:

Dear Students,

I spend a lot of time talking with employers about the kinds of things that get an entry-level applicant’s resume noticed. As I’ve mentioned many times, internships are number one across the board.

However, they also put a premium on your involvement with student organizations.

Whatever your major, the WVU Reed College of Media has a student organization that can help you to

  • Learn more about jobs in your chosen field
  • Build and strengthen your professional network
  • Get advice from upperclassmen
  • Do worthwhile projects that can translate into great resume “stories”

Most of these organizations are open to all majors, so if you’re interested in seeing media from outside your major’s perspective, you can’t beat this! I’ve linked them all here so you can quickly get more information.

Get involved in these organizations right away. This is one of the most important investments of your time that you can make if you’re looking for opportunities, whether they be internships or entry points for your career.

Let me know if you need help connecting to these great organizations!
