While you're there, see what other interesting opportunities you find! C3 is a great way to start exploring your career options and it is also the best way to stay informed on what you need to know as a job or internship seeker while you're a student here at U of M. Besides housing a resume builder, C3 also contains information about employer presentations, career fairs, work-shops, and on-campus interviews.

DUSTY'S PICK: Film Marketing/Film Festival Internships - Facets Film & Video/Chicago International Children's Film Festival
JOB ID: 49530

For anyone interested in non-profits, marketing/PR, fundraising, or film publicity and promotion, this well-established organization based in Chicago has several opportunities available for summer 2015. While the internships are unpaid, there is significant opportunity to gain useful experience and skills and there are some perks included. The location in downtown Chicago is great for a summer, and the schedule of the internships (3 days/week) is flexible enough to allow you to fill the time in other ways--a separate internship or maybe a part-time paying job.
