What do I need before I start?

Ask the instructor for a syllabus from the current semester so you can see how CMM490 works. Because the course is for variable credit, the department chair must clear everyone who takes CMM 490 to register for the appropriate number of hours. You also need a resume BEFORE you begin looking for an internship.  Supervisors also typically want to see at least three samples of your work: writing, design, clips and etc. – these can be hard copies, online or a PDF file. You can clean up work turned in for class credit or work that was produced/printed (ex. Springhillian clips, real client work done in classes).  You should also have three references – people who are very familiar with your work ethic and capability.  It’s good to have at least one letter of recommendation as well.
