Pointers from MSU internship coordinator L.A. Dickerson

MSU internship coordinator L.A. Dickerson

When it comes to getting a job or internship no one knows recruiters like Michigan State internship coordinator Lori Anne Dickerson.

Dickerson, a former crime reporter for the Detroit Free Press, sat down with Communication Arts Sciences students to discuss how to prepare for their dream job outside of the classroom.

She highlighted the importance of job-shadowing. Dickerson said shadowing professionals can give students insight into what fields best suite their interests. This will also pave the way for networking opportunities, which could lead to mentoring, letters of recommendation,  etc.

Dickerson also emphasized the used of social media. Web sites such as Facebook and Twitter can make it easier to cover beats as a reporter or to publicize events as a public relations specialist.

Internships are crucial to gaining experience and for finding work after graduation. If you would like to speak with Dickerson about internship opportunities or finding a mentor, you can contact her at dicker22@msu.edu.
