Benefits of Internships

Are you unsure about whether or not to apply for an internship? Are you unsure as to what type of internship to look for? A recent graduate from the Language and Literature program has given some advice when it comes to picking an internship and planning for post-graduation work.

“Because my greatest passions are writing and helping others, I decided to pursue internships that would allow me to develop my skills in these areas while padding out my experience at the same time. Moving from arts reporting with ACU’s student newspaper, I found success writing album reviews and feature articles for The Appetizer Radio Show, a venture started by an Abilene graduate. At the same time, I spent a portion of my summer providing administrative assistance for the International Rescue Committee, which works to resettle refugees and asylees from around the world.

These two internships pushed me to strengthen my abilities and remember to keep other people’s interests above my own. While it’s important to bolster your résumé proactively to stand out from other applicants when the time comes, internships that reflect your deepest interests are also an excellent way to reflect a rounded personality on paper; after my time with The Appetizer and IRC, my prospective employer was impressed that I had something to show for my talents and passions beyond academia!” – Richard Lyne, 2015

A summer internship opportunity has come available for a writer/web editor through KDLG, a public radio provider in Dillingham, Alaska. Daily tasks would include taking news stories from the radio to transcribe, edit, format for web, and publish/promote them. There may also be a chance to have some airtime with the KDLG station along with some other exciting tasks. KDLG is in partnerships with The Bristol Bay Times and Alaska Dispatch News, so a young writer may see a story or two per week pop up in publication all around the state. This also allows for networking opportunities that can build contacts and connections helpful to students as they enter the job market. The position would ideally run from June 1, 2015 to August 1, 2015 with some free time at the beginning and end to enjoy fishing, hiking, boating, and camping, but it should be said that these dates are subject to change. The internship is unpaid, though help will be provided when searching for housing and transportation. Participation in this internship would give credit hours under “Language and Literature Internships”. To find out more, click HERE

…they’re interested in seeing your applications! Here’s a video you can watch about the Disney English program:

You can also visit the program’s homepage at and fill out an inquiry form at

From what I can see, a position with Disney English requires a completed college degree and offers a living salary plus benefits (including, of course, living abroad in a growing and fascinating place). Other TEFL jobs may pay more, and with Disney, you have to be comfortable with being connected to a brand as well as just teaching. On the other hand, you’ll also be working with an established company, earning recognizable experience, and tied to something familiar. So as always, do your homework before applying and accepting any job. However, if this is a good fit, you could have a blast!
