Work-Study and Internships

Attention EMU students! Interested in beefing up your resume? Join the team that helps tell the EMU story! Each semester our office employs “communications assistants” in work-study or intern roles from a variety of majors and academic programs, like language and literature and visual and communication arts.

We especially need intern or work-study help in the following areas. Students normally cross-train in two or three of these areas:

  • graphic design (Adobe In-Design)
  • photography
  • writing and research
  • video production (Final Cut pro)

Familiar with updating Facebook or a blog? Possess good attention to detail? Basic web design and content work is waiting for you.
