Internship opportunity

EMU’s Office of Admissions has an internship opportunity for a motivated student.  Read on:

It’s fall in Admissions, and that means lots of communication…and writing! We’re looking to provide an internship experience to a good student writer.

Types of assignments:

  • wording on a postcard advertising our Saturday tours 
  • letters to admitted students who didn’t enroll for Fall 
  • working on poster advertising our scholarships 
  • mailing to HS counselors about our scholarships 
  • and other projects as we think of them! 

It’s all writing. The student would report to Chris LaRusso, our Associate Director and the person in charge of our Marketing and Communications to new students. Chris manages our projects with our vendor, Pryor, who does all graphic design. But we need someone to help with the writing for these various pieces.

Start time: immediately…or sooner! 

Hours per week: negotiable. Could be as few as 5 or as many as 20, depending on the # hours available and needed for an internship. A small stipend will be offered.

Opportunities: develop a varied and rich portfolio, learn about working with vendors, writing for marketing /public relations purposes and learn about admissions and recruiting communications in general; possible this could evolve into a paid position for future semesters, if the student internship proves to be as much of a contribution as I believe it will.

If you are interested, please contact
