In addition to day-to-day working knowledge and experience obtained, participating students gain valuable "hands-on" work experience which will be applied and used during their post-collegiate employment positions. The prospective intern will perform a variety of activities ranging from the daily office routine to assisting with programming/on-air activities. Attention to detail is imperative with this position. Prospective candidate must be able to accommodate a varied and flexible schedule, which may include nights and weekend hours.
