Careers and Opportunities

This student-centric hub for the College’s career development resources gives you access to a centralized and expanding database of internship and career opportunities.

As part of our commitment to educate and prepare students for today’s digital media marketplace, the WVU Reed College of Media established the Office of Student Careers and Opportunities in 2013.

In addition to career and internship resources, the College of Media has a diverse and expanding group of passionate alumni, journalism and communications professionals who are friends and mentors, and generous benefactors who want to ensure you get the internships and professional experiences that lead to a dream career. You'll have lots of opportunities to network and meet the perfect professional mentors.

Do you need help learning how to find a job, build a professional network or tune up your resume?

Eric Minor, Director of Student Careers and Opportunities, is offering a series of evening coaching sessions this semester to help you out with all of those.

Eric will send you a secure Zoom link and password in the morning on the day of each session.

Are you having a “resume emergency?”

It’s been a crazy year with lots of unexpected demands on your time and energy.

If you’ve just run out of time to get your resume and cover letter tuned up before hitting the job or internship market this summer, Eric Minor is here to help.

“Resume 911” is a series of short (30 minute) after-school sessions aimed at diagnosing what ails your resume and finding a quick remedy!

Each night’s program will be the same, so you don’t need to attend all five. We just wanted to make sure Eric was available on the evenings when you’re free.
