Internship Video Contest

Create a 60-second video showcasing your internship.

Produce and submit a short video using footage of your workplace and/or city. Three submissions will be selected to receive prizes and will be featured on the Career Center website and social media sites.

You may want to consider doing the following in your video: 

  • Show us your desk and/or office space
  • Introduce us to your coworkers
  • Give us a tour of the city where your internship is taking place
  • Tell us about your typical day or week
  • Describe what you like about your experience
  • Offer advice for other students seeking an internship at your organization and let them know how you landed it
  • …and whatever else you want!

Just be creative and show us why you love your internship. Feel free to use your smartphone, iPad, or any other mobile device for your camera.
