A group of 39 George Washington University undergraduate and graduate students—including ten students from the School of Media and Public Affairs—arrived in New York City last Thursday for a whirlwind two days of networking with prospective employers. The trip was the final leg of the inaugural GW Career Quest program—a professional development experience launched by the Center for Career Services and the Career Services Council during the fall semester. GW Today spoke with SMPA Seniors Danielle Noel and Honor Williams about their experience on the trip.
The J. Michael Shanahan Journalism Internship Fund supports an SMPA program that Professor Shanahan (1943-2014) cared about deeply and worked on extensively: student internships. The Fund permits SMPA students to pursue and benefit from enriching summer internship experiences that they otherwise might not be able to afford. Awarded in the spring to rising GW seniors pursuing journalism majors or minors, it supports an internship experience in the summer after junior year with an established media organization.
