Internship panel and resume review, Tues. 4/8, 6-8pm

7 Apr
Come to the English Department’s spring internship panel and resume review!
The event will take place on Tuesday, April 8, 6-8pm, in the English Department Lounge. The event kicks off at 6pm with panel presentations by Baltimore-area employers looking for summer and fall interns and current student interns who will share their internship experiences. Panelists will discuss how to locate and secure an internship, how to make it successful, and how it fits into an education and career plan.
Panelists will be
  • Employers: Sue Lin Chong (The Annie E. Casey Foundation) 
  • Current Interns: Tom Flanagan (ABET intern), Molly Corry (UB/Event planning intern), Marianne Williams (Stone House Publishing; MD Wineries intern), and Courtney Cousins (City Paper intern, Christmas at Environment Ohio intern, and Enoch Pratt Library volunteer)
  • Dr. Jean Cole, internship coordinator: preliminary remarks and introductions
  • Dr. Sondra Guttman, for-credit internship mentor
In the second hour, at 7pm, we will begin an interactive resume review. Dr. Melissa Girard will present a few brief tips about resumes, and then we will organize small-group breakout sessions where students can have their own resumes reviewed by professionals in a variety of fields. Students should bring 3 printed copies of their resumes with them to take full advantage of this opportunity. However, students who don’t yet have a resume are still welcome to participate and review the excellent sample resumes on display.
The Resume Review and Workshop will feature
  • Sue Lin Chong (law, PR, communications, non-profit sector)
  • Colleen Depman Kukowski (FBI/goverment, law)
  • Brianna Panzica (publishing, editing)
The Internship Panel is always a great event. This year, we’re very excited to add the resume review into the mix. Please let your students know that they are welcome to join us for one or both hours of the event. Also: there will be pizza!
