Internships play an important role in exposing students to the day-to-day operations of television and radio stations, advertising and public relations agencies, newspapers, magazines, production houses,etc. Additionally, COM students gain valuable experience to use on their resumes. COM Career Services acts as a clearinghouse of internship information, providing many resources to COM students. Take a look at what we have to offer:
