As we all know, many businesses are shut down due to the virus. However, we are enrolling for the summer 2020 class and for Fall 2020. Summer 2020 will be online completely and the work will be done remotely. Professor Nicolaou will be your professor for the summer and below is a letter she has written to all summer 2020 interns with important information for you. Prof. Nicolaou will work with you to place you with past employers of COMD student interns or with employers outside of that list.
Students, there are still internships out there and one student in COMD has found one already for summer.
With regard to FAll 2020 internships, `it is unclear yet with regard to the health situation, so fall internship work for employment sites may be all remote as well. The classes for fall are hybrid classes as of now. They generally meet in-person the first two sessions and the last two sessions, with 3 other in-person sessions. The rest of the classes are online and are asynchronous (in other words, assignments and resources are online and the work is done over the course of the week).
Even before you begin searching, there is work to be done in preparing your resume and getting together your portfolio. The first steps should be to get on CityTechConnect, this will allow you to take advantage of the Virtual services provided by the Professional Development Center. See below for how to do that.
