Students, Apply for Summer Internships!

Looking for a full-time job this summer? Internships in media/web development are available at the Multimedia Learning Center.

Each year, the Multimedia Learning Center (MMLC) — through the support of the Weinberg College of Arts and Sciences Hewlett Fund for Curricular Innovation —invites students to work on a wide range of multimedia projects during the summer.

Specifically, we are looking for talented students with interest and experience in one or more of the following areas:

Web Design:
 — Flash
 — Dreamweaver
 — Photoshop
 — Illustrator

Video Editing:
 — Final Cut Pro
 — Video encoding for web distribution

Web Programming:
 — Database-driven web design with PostgreSQL
 — PHP, Java
 — jQuery/AJAX/DHTML

The internship begins Monday June 18, and runs through Friday, August 17. The pay is $12.50 per hour (up to $4,200 or more for the summer).

Although candidates having experience with these software applications and technologies are preferred, the MMLC will train motivated individuals looking to learn and apply skills in these areas.

After a period of orientation and training, interns will be paired with a faculty member whose proposal has been selected for development. Together, the intern and faculty member will collaborate to build an online resource: typically, an interactive web site. During the 9-week internship period, you will be supervised by a permanent staff member of the MMLC who will provide additional training and technical guidance as needed.

Title: Hewlett Summer Project Intern
Location: MMLC Development Studio
Salary: $12.50/hr (~ $4200 for the summer)
