More than 40 students from Florida A&M University’s School of Journalism and Graphic Communication (SJGC) will work as interns in media companies, public relation firms and other institutions across the United States and Canada this summer.
“This is an indication that the Office of Internship and Placement has become more visible to the students, and students are taking its services seriously,” said Yanela Gordon, SJGC’s director of Internship and Placement. “Our students are understanding the importance of internships and they are registering for internship credit and that is a good thing.”
Gordon worked with Delisha Peterson, an adjunct graphics instructor and web designer, to launch www.sjgc-oip.com, a Web site to increase awareness among students and potential employers of various internship and job placement opportunities.
