Don’t know where you want to go with your career? Seeking job experience?
Campus clubs and organizations are a great avenue for students to learn skills that will help build their resumes and skill sets. At The Broadside, however, students have the opportunity to learn those skills while applying them in a close to real-world professional business setting.
If you’re looking to enter the field of journalism, communications, public relations or design, employers and internship managers will likely ask for clips of published work. Because very few publishing companies offer budding writers, designers or photographers opportunity to publish; beyond personal blogs or high school yearbook, it can be near impossible to come up with published samples that display your talent.
The Broadside offers students a unique opportunity to build a portfolio of published work that will stand out among a stack of applications. In addition to practical job skills, most students who leave The Broadside take with them the tangible evidence of their skill and work.
If, however, you’re not looking to enter the above mentioned fields, don’t pass up this opportunity just yet. The practical skills (eg. leadership, communication, budgeting, running meetings, and writing) students can learn here don’t exclusively apply to the world of communications.
The Broadside currently has job opportunities open for writers, photographers and designers and we’re looking to fill positions for next summer and fall too. We have weekly meetings each Monday and Wednesday at noon so if you’re interested in learning more about opportunities, pick up a job application or stop on by.
