We know some of you are starting to plan for summer (or spring) internships, so we are offering this session just for you! Learn strategies for finding or creating the best internship for you.
At this session, we will:
• Give you examples of past internships Midd students have done.
• Highlight top resources to use in the search process.
• Discuss strategies for creating your own experience.
• Provide an overview of CCI’s GRANT FUNDING available for unpaid summer internships.
• Help you with the process of narrowing down fields in which to pursue your internship.
Students seeking internships for the Spring semester or the long Winter break may also find it valuable to attend but please note that funding is only available for summer internships. This webinar will be recorded and sent to anyone who registers for the workshop (another session will be offered in January). Students may also drop into Quick Questions to see a Peer Career Advisor or make an appointment with a CCI advisor for help. We look forward to seeing you and answering all of your questions!

Now in its 36th year, the IRTS Multicultural Career Workshop has earned the reputation of being one of the best ways for BIPOC students and recent grads to get a jump start in their careers, all while interfacing with top media companies for insights and open opportunities.
This year, due to the impact of COVID-19, they are bringing this experience to you! Students will leave this conference with a greater understanding of the media business, career paths you might not know exist, tangible next-steps, and an even stronger sense of why the industry needs your talent and perspective more than ever. No cost to attend the workshop!
Join them virtually for the 2020 IRTS Multicultural Career Workshop on November 12, 13, & 14!
From 11am – 3pm ET each day, you will hear from some of the industry’s most dynamic professionals through a series of engaging panels, featured speakers, and Q&A sessions. Then, each weeknight from 6pm – 7pm ET, they will have a conversation with accomplished members of the IRTS community. The majority of the speakers were actually former attendees of IRTS programs.
Since media is ever-evolving and multifaceted, the panel and speaker topics are designed to introduce attendees to the various positions and opportunities within the industry. Conferees will learn about opportunities in advertising, content creation, digital media, journalism, marketing, media buying and planning, production, research, sales, and many more!
Following the Workshop, students will have the opportunity to participate in exclusive meetings with top media companies to learn about their work, mission, and entry level opportunities. Resumes will also be shared with their corporate partners, to be vetted for current and future internships and full-time positions.
Accomplished students (freshman – grad school) and recent university graduates (less than 12 months out of school) from all majors are encouraged to apply! Click here to apply!

An Admissions Officer from the Yale School of Management and a panel of Yale SOM Silver Scholars and alumni will present an information session to share information about this very unique opportunity.
The Silver Scholars Program is specifically designed for college seniors who wish to earn an MBA immediately after completing their undergraduate studies. Students enroll in Yale SOM’s full-time two-year MBA program but rather than the traditional summer MBA internship, Silver Scholars complete a year-long internship of their choice.
The admissions committee seeks applicants with a combination of intelligence, maturity, and curiosity who aim to be future leaders in their field of interest. Candidates from all majors are welcome to apply; Yale SOM enjoys the diversity of interests and backgrounds that Silver Scholars bring to the broader MBA class.
Date: Friday, October 23
Time: 12 noon – 1 pm EST
