KzooConnect’s Internship Review0
We know that things are a little unpredictable in the world right now, but it is still important for young professionals to continue building their resumes and gaining relevant experience whenever possible. Finding these opportunities can be hard so, to help get the ball rolling, we compiled a short list of great internship opportunities throughout Kalamazoo.
A hospital can never have enough nurses, which is why Ascension Borgess has an opening for a Nursing Intern. This individual will observe the status of patients, document observations, and assist in the development of care plans among other duties. With applications due April 3, interested candidates are encouraged to apply as soon as possible.
Attention all extroverts, StructureTec Group needs an affable Recruiting Intern who can help the organization grow its brand! While working alongside a Corporate Recruiter, the intern will screen job candidates, create job descriptions, streamline the organization’s recruiting process, and perform administrative duties.
If you have an interest in art or art history, then an internship at the Kalamazoo Institute of Arts is worth considering. Past internships have included roles in education, library services, marketing, and advancement. Candidates are asked to email a letter of interest, resume, and writing sample in PDF format.
Every fall, spring, and summer, Public Media Network holds internships in video production and social media/marketing. Additionally, year-round internships in broadcast journalism are available for students whose goal is to become the next Barbara Walters. Interested parties can reach out to Kris Ferguson for more information on how to apply.
Closing out our list are three internship positions from Binder Park Zoo. Applicants for the Animal Care Intern, Education Intern, and Special Events Intern roles must be willing to work a flexible schedule regardless of weather conditions or holidays. These internships are available year-round, however, duties may be affected by the season.
Looking for other opportunities? As an organization that is passionate about keeping talent in southwest Michigan, Miinternship.com is a great place for students to begin their search.
We hope that this list has given you a starting point to pursue the many fantastic opportunities our community has to offer, or at least been a nice interruption from video games, Netflix marathons, and other social distancing activities.
Before we sign off this week, we want to remind our readers to stay safe during this time of uncertainty. We are proud to be a part of a community that always comes together, literally and figuratively, to ensure a better tomorrow.
