Internships in the Creative Media Major
Create a Highly Marketable Creative Media Résumé
The Creative Media major will provide you with a great depth in the specific skills that will allow you to approach and creatively solve problems—which is highly attractive to employers—while integrating the knowledge you gained in your specializations to give you the most flexibility in the rapidly evolving global marketplace.
Because you'll follow an in-depth curriculum starting in your first semester, you'll be qualified sooner for internships. Creative media majors have interned with local arts centers, including the Flynn Center for Performing Arts, in roles such as gallery intern, design intern and events intern.
How We Prepare You to Land Internships
Great internships don't just happen. You need to develop valuable skills, create a good résumé, receive expert guidance, and you need an "in." At Champlain, we make sure you are well-prepared in all four of these areas.
- The Upside-Down Curriculum allows you to get extensive classroom learning and hands-on experience with industry professionals in your major in your first year, which gives you the real world skills and qualifications to begin taking internships as early as the summer before your sophomore year.
- Champlain's Career Collaborative will help you develop your professional résumé and hone your interview skills. By graduation, you'll have created a career marketing plan highlighting the unique talents and benefits that set you apart from other job candidates.
- Your professors will become your reliable mentors, pointing out the strategic academic and co-curricular activities they will help you build your professional skill-set and enhance your résumé.
- Local and national employers turn to Champlain for college interns because they are universally better prepared to work in professional environments than the majority of their peers from other institutions. Many Champlain graduates receive full and part-time job offers from the organizations where they first took their internships.
