Dear Professors
Allow me to introduce myself,  I am the owner of a talent agency in Linden NJ.  My agency is licensed and bonded by the NJ Department of Consumer Affairs and we are also a premier business in the Better Business Bureau.  In addition my agency is franchised with Actors Equity Association (AEA) and the American Federation of Television & Radio Artists (AFTRA).  We are looking for interns for the fall & spring semesters.  Duties will include help scheduling interviews, assisting us with the interviews, researching, and answering phones.  This would be ideal for communication, fine arts/drama, film, and Public Relations majors. 

We need at a minimum of one day per week and this is good way for someone to  break into the entertainment/agent business. 

Thank you for any assistance

Subject: photography interns

Hello,

I am interested in implementing a photography internship program for students to work in my photography company.  I would greatly appreciate your advice as well as letting me know how I can reach the right students.  I have a few questions regarding the specifics of taking on an intern and I'm also going to include a job description.

Can the students receive course credits?  Would this replace hourly payment?  If we are expected to pay on an hourly basis what is the going rate for an intern in a position like this?  This position would be ongoing from now, through the summer, fall and winter.  Depending on the hours that the applicants are able to offer us we may be interested in taking on more than one intern.

Here is a little bit about us and the position we are looking to fill.

My husband and I own Be Creative Photography based out of Wyckoff, NJ.  We specialize in event and portrait photography in a photojournalistic style.  We photograph a high volume of work, approximately 30 events a year including weddings and other celebrations as well as 20-30 family lifestyle sessions.  To get a good idea of the work we do please visit our blog at www.becreativephotography.com/journal

It is also worth noting that my husband and I are both international award winners.  Eric received the honors of the 1st Runner Up Photographer of the Year in a worldwide competition.  

This position would be an amazing opportunity for a student to learn the ins and outs of a digital photography studio.  We are looking for assistance in our office in Wyckoff, NJ.  We are not far from NYC but we would prefer that the applicant live locally.  Job responsibilities include digitally processing photos from the raw format to print output, updating client information, packaging prints and albums for delivery, and many other tasks that we need assistance with on a day to day basis.  

The applicant should have experience converting raw images to the jpeg format, have a good understanding of color balance and exposures, and should also know how to use tools in Photoshop such as curves, actions, layers, and masks.  Any skills in graphic design would also be a bonus.

We would like to interview applicants as soon as possible.  Now is the perfect time for training because our busy event season begins in May.  Thanks again for your help.

Sincerely,

Brooke Lagstein

8. Only Make Believe

We would love the help of an intern. However, what we specifically need is
someone who is interested in theater production and backstage work. We move
a lot of props & costumes around as we are basically changing venues every
six weeks. We would love to have someone (strong!) who would help us
physically with this (we rent Zip cars, pick up and drop off suitcases full
of costumes and props for six shows at each hospital). We could also use
help at rehearsals and I thought if someone were willing to help with the
"schlepping" of stuff, it might be interesting for them to then be involved
in rehearsals.

 

Also go to www.theatreinterngroup@americantheatrewing.org, an organization that unites interns with the New York theater community.

Another valuable source for information is  www.njtheatrealliance, which lists internship opportunities with various NJ Theater companies.
