Have you interned in arts and entertainment? ProPublica wants to hear from you!

We at #ProjectIntern are kicking off a series of in-depth exploration of internships by industry, and we’re starting this week with arts and entertainment. 

To participate, search for your school (or alma mater) in our database, and once you’ve found it, click on “Write a Review.” You can do so anonymously, if you wish.

Next week, we’ll be shifting our focus to a different industry – so share your story on ProPublica today (and tell your friends!)

–A former student’s review of an unpaid internship at Medill. “ It was an exceptional internship experience,” but the intern was also forced into credit card debt.
Today, current and former students added reviews of their experience interning for academic credit at American University, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, New York University, SUNY Albany, Northwestern and the University of Oklahoma.
That brings the total to 33 schools in #ProjectIntern’s database. Help shed light on 100 schools by the end of the semester by adding yours today!    High-res
