A foot in the door

The word is out — Blugolds are hard-working and talented, and are highly sought by employers. The step between college and that first job is often an internship.

What kind of internships?

Students can apply for campus internships, like the current choral intern whose duties include creating promotional materials for the voice and choral areas. On a larger scale, there are more distant opportunities like our percussion student who landed the single 6-month internship at the Percussive Arts Society based in Indianapolis. These experiences and connections help to create a wide career network that can take you far after graduation. Other internship opportunities have been at Williamstown Theatre Festival, The Glimmerglass Festival, Santa Fe Opera, Festival Theatre at St. Croix, Utah Opera, and Disney College.

Work on signature events

Every year the Jazz Festival provides multiple internship opportunities for our students. These internships typically include students in graphic design, communications, marketing, volunteer coordinating and an overall festival director. Highly prized, these opportunities give our students the kind of learning that will make them standouts in their fields.
