College Media Viral Video: ‘I Want a Journalism Internship’
A new video that has leapt onto the social media B-list over the past week is a cautionary tale for journalism students seeking internships.
The gist of the four-minute vid, created by Rowan University journalism professor Kathryn Quigley using the wonderful moviemaker program Xtranormal: You are NOT entitled to a high-paying gig close to home that works around your schedule simply because you want one.
My favorite part of the funny exchange between internship coordinator and student is the long awkward pauses before the coordinator has to repeatedly say NO to the student’s selfish/clueless internship-related requests.
