CHELSEA'S PICK: Women PeaceMakers Internship at Joan B. Kroc School of Peace Studies at the University of San Diego

The cold weather in Michigan has me dreaming of warmer places, so I set out to find opportunities on the West Coast. In Handshake, I used the location filter to find positions within 50 miles of San Diego, California. From there, I filtered the results to only see internships. This particular opportunity stood out to me because it is a paid position with a focus on social justice and research skills--all elements that are popular among many U-M students. Check it out!

KATHLEEN'S PICK: The Gameshow Network Design Intern

This paid, 10 week Design internship at The Gameshow Network in Santa Monica, CA sounds awesome! This is a great opportunity for juniors/seniors that have an interest in design & entertainment to see what it is like to work in the TV show industry in a creative role. Reporting to the VP of Design- you will gain an understanding of the strategic design that goes into making TV shows happen. If you're a collaborative, self-starter with strong communication skills and knowledge of After Effects, Illustrator & Photoshop, this role is for you! I found this role by using the following filters- I typed in 'Santa Monica' under location, and selected 'Movies, TV, Music' under industry.
