We are looking for students to intern with the DIS Communications & Marketings Team to continue our video storytelling tradition! Each semester DIS Student Videographers collaborate on the semester yearbook video as a visual compilation of their semester abroad.
Why Should You Apply?
- Your time spent with the Communications & Marketing Team can be noted as a non-credit internship on your future resume, and at the end of the semester, you can request a letter of recommendation or a LinkedIn recommendation from the Communications & Marketing Team to help build your resume*
- You’ll build your skill set and portfolio abroad, and your videos will be used in DIS web and social media material
- You will be an ambassador of the DIS program – helping to inspire future students and set their expectations about what the real experience is like
- You’ll join a community of creative students interning for the Communications & Marketing Team – sharing ideas and reviewing each other’s work
- At the end of the semester, you will be invited to celebrate your work and semester at DIS, over a concluding thank you dinner!
*Please note that this is an experience-building ambassadorship and not a paid position.
Am I Qualified for the Position?
- It is preferred that you have previous experience in documentary or creative short filmmaking
- You must be comfortable in all aspects of video making – from storyboarding, to interviewing, to filming, and producing
- You should be outgoing and willing to work with others and to network with others for inclusion videos – as you’ll see from past videos – we are all about people here!
- Good time management and organization skills, as you will be expected to complete the video assignment alongside your academic and social commitments
