COMD department & City Tech Professional Development Center

On the home page of this site I post internship spots that come to my attention. If you join this site, you will be emailed these openings automatically. You should also talk to your professors and network with them. The course leader for web design is Professor Wong, for graphic design it is Professor Maria Giuliani, for Advertising it is Professor Doug Davis and for Broadcast it is Professor George Larkin and AIG, you can connect with Professor Accardo or Professor Wooley. You should also make sure you are on the Communication Design at CityTech facebook page as our alumni, adjunts all post positions there, as do I. You can also make a appointment to see me to discuss your internship search at tgoetz@citytech.cuny.edu. No need to wait until you are registered. It is best to start searching even BEFORE you register for the class. Use this site as a resource for your search. We have posted many online job sites (https://openlab.citytech.cuny.edu/comd4900internship/online-internship-sites/) that that our students have used in the past and we have a COMD employer contact list I can provide to you upon request.

The next important place to begin your search is The CityTech Professional Development Center located in Atrium 114 within the Welcome Center. The link for this Center may be found on the CityTech site  at http://www.citytech.cuny.edu/pdc/ Please stop in person to the PDC and pickup their calendar of events and workshops. You should also register for the CityTech connect Job board at https://citytech-cuny-csm.symplicity.com/students. You can access the services of the PDC by sending an email to pdc@citytech.cuny.edu. In your email you can:

  • email career related questions
  • send your resume for review
  • request a one on one career coaching session
  • receive addresses of employers who looking to conduct on campus information sessions and interviews

You can also phone the Professional Development Center at 718-260-5050 . There is a  staff person in the PDC responsible for Tech jobs and her name is Nelly Lliguichushca. Her email is nlliguichushca@citytech.cuny.edu. You can email Nelly and let her know you are enrolled or are enrolling in the COMD 4900 internship class and looking to land an internship.

With regard to internships, the PDC conducts ongoing recruitment for internships and employment opportunities as they come in from employers. You should regularly check the email you listed in CUNYfirst as this is the email the PDF uses to inform students of these opportunities. James Jackson,  is the college’s liaison for Brooklyn Tech Triangle Internships. He can be reached at jjackson@citytech.cuny.edu.

Application deadlines for Spring Brooklyn Tech internship are usually in the previous fall in early November. Check with the PDC for date of the information workshops they hold the first week of November.

There is also the CUNY service Corp which offers internships. Again, recruitment information for those positions can be found at the PDC.
