As someone who has completed an internship in the English department, I highly recommend doing so during your undergraduate career. Not only does it give you hands-on experience and something tangible to add to your résumé, you get 3 hours of college credit toward your major and some life experience to boot!
If you didn’t receive an email about English department internships (or you just need a refresher) I’ve attached Dr. Jones’ email below; it includes links to the internship descriptions and the webpage for English department internships where you can fill out your application (which just takes a few minutes). Do it soon, though, because the deadline is noon tomorrow!
Email from Dr. Angela Jones:
Dear English students,
As coordinator of the English department’s internship program, I am delighted to announce several internship opportunities for the spring 2014 semester. For a list of internships visit http://www.wku.edu/english/internship_position_announcements_sp2014.pdf , and I hope many of you apply to fill both these recurring opportunities and the new ones.
To apply for an internship, follow these simple steps:
- Download and complete a copy of the Internship Application Form (available at http://www.wku.edu/english/internships.php).
- Submit the Internship Application Form to me by noon on *Monday, November 4*. Save the form as a Word document or PDF file and attach it to an email to me.
As the coordinator of the program, I review the completed applications and forward them to the supervisors. They may then contact candidates for additional screening. As each intern is selected, I will work with the student to arrange enrollment in ENG 369, the internship course.
If you have any questions about the internship program overall, feel free to contact me; however, if you have any questions about the specifics of any of the available positions, please first review the descriptions carefully and then contact the supervisors listed.
I look forward to receiving your applications and to working with several of you to complete your internships.
Angela Jones, Ph.D.
Take a few minutes to fill out your application and email it to Dr. Angela Jones by tomorrow at noon. Don’t miss out on these great opportunities!
