For each of these conferences we require a multitude of AV/Tech and general Media support. The intern will help professional staff provide support in a variety of technological needs – specifically during the days/weeks of the conference. You will be responsible for the setup, operation, and maintenance of all media equipment in our inventory and that of the college (consoles, carts, doc cams, console & laptop PCs & Macs, LCD projectors, digital cameras, microphones, screens, floor/table microphone stands, cables/connectors, mixers, etc.). Beyond the conference, you will assist our Media Tech Specialist with the technology in the office and potentially web development.
We are looking for part-time interns to work 3-4 weeks around the time of our conferences, with the possibility of extended work. Interns will be expected to work four or five days (up to 40 hours) a week, depending on the events of a given day. There will be some early mornings and long days, as well as weekends. Each day is different and the work is often fast paced, with a fair amount of physical activity. Vacation time will be permitted but please note our conference dates are June 23rd-27th, June 29th-July3rd, August 4th-8th and August 11th-15th. Interns must be available during both the week prior to and the week of each conference. This is a paid internship opportunity, however it is also possible to have interns be self-funded by their undergraduate institution, whether through a grant, scholarship, or college credit.
