Jobs, internships are out there

It may be late for this summer's part-time work, but the Chicago Headline Club and Illinois News Broadcasters have a lot of tips for full-time job seekers and a few internships that remain open.

Check out the opportunities --

Also, keep in mind that you can create your own opportunities and internships by approaching a local news operation and offering to work for what the Journalism program may be able to credit you.

Check out the catalog description: "404 Field Work in Journalism. (1–12, repeatable to 12) Credit for internships at newspapers, magazines or other publications, or in advertising or public relations offices. By arrangement. See department chair or journalism coordinator. No more than 6 s.h. can be used in the Journalism major, and no more than 3 s.h. of that can count toward the 400-level elective requirement. Prerequisite: Junior or senior standing."
