This page exists to educate you about our program -- what internships we offer, what requirements we have, what you might expect in an internship, and how to apply (we'll even throw in a few helpful tips to make your application stand out!). First, we’ll look at some of the responsibilities and duties that will be expected from all interns. Throughout the course of the internship, the intern will be asked to work with individuals from several departments within Mix 96.5, including promotions, sales, web, video, programming, and sports. The intern’s duties include preparing for and working at promotional events, and carrying out special projects. Now for internship specific activities:
Applications should be received by the following deadlines to assure full consideration. Late applications will be considered for future terms. Dates listed subject to change.
Tip: Summer internships have the greatest number of applicants and, therefore, are toughest to obtain. Consider a fall, winter, or spring internship to increase your chances.
Interns are selected on the basis of professional potential. We look at our internship program as a developing ground for future employees. That's not to say all interns will get hired. One of our goals is to see how many responsibilities an intern can handle; on the chance an employment opportunity becomes available. This isn't a coffee-fetching, grunt work internship. We trust our interns to handle duties that require the utmost in responsibility, diligence, and enthusiasm.
Tip: When applying for an internship, specify which particular post you're interested in. Be sure to include why that particular internship post would benefit you professionally, as well as explaining why you would be an asset to our internship program.
During the internship, interns gain exposure to the realities of working in radio and gain exposure to related fields. Interns have the opportunity to prove themselves and determine if radio is a career for them. Interns make friends and contacts that they can network with as they start their career. After interns complete their term at Mix 96.5, some return to school and share their new experiences. A few become part-time employees. Occasionally, interns obtain full-time positions with Withers Broadcasting. Many interns take their experiences to other media outlets where they begin rewarding careers.
