Posting Jobs and Internships:
We encourage employers to post opportunities with Career Services at McNally Smith College of Music for our online job board. If you choose this option, only McNally Smith students and eligible alumni will be able to view your posting online. We do include some of the opportunities in a weekly email sent to alumni and current students as well. Feel free to email Liz Jennings about internship, volunteer and employment opportunities.
Employers are expected to comply with Equal Employment Opportunity regulations, Fair Labor Standards Act and related legislation in their recruitment and hiring practices. Internship host organizations should make sure that their internship program fits under proper Fair Labor Standards Act criteria found in Fact Sheet #71. We also encourage you to read NACE’s (National Association of Colleges and Employers) Position Statement on internships. Consideration should be afforded to all candidates without regard to race, religion, color, sex, sexual orientation, national origin, or age.
How to Submit Job, Internships & Opportunities:
Whether you’re looking to share information about paid jobs and gigs, or volunteer and internship opportunities, we’d like to hear from you. Our diverse and creative student population is always seeking new opportunities to further their career and livelihood but we need some details from you.
Please submit the following information when posting an opportunity:
- Organizational Information: Org name, mission/org summary, website
- Contact information: First and last Name, email, phone, full address
- Position Information: Type of position (full-time, part-time, internship, freelance/gig, volunteer, grants, competitions, prizes), position title, position description, maximum hours per week, deadline to apply, qualifications, requirements & how to apply (eg. Resume, cover letter, portfolio, reference, audition, etc.)
Detailed, concise, and clear information will help students and alumni better consider opportunities. Please email Liz Jennings if you have any questions or confusion.
Internship Program Development & Descriptions:
Numerous organizations have expressed interest in helping our students gain hands-on practical experience and training in the field through our internship program. We know that many organizations need guidance in creating programs and position description. We strongly recommend reviewing InternQube’s website, and reading "Starting and Maintaining A Quality Internship Program". Both provide excellent information that has proven success in the field.
In posting an internship position, the overall underlying questions you should answer are:
- What is it you want our students to do?
- What will the student learn as an intern?
- What experiences will the student have during the internship?
Answering these questions gives potential applicants a clearer picture of what the internship will look like and hopefully it will help you better understand how to utilize interns.
