The Georgetown Entertainment & Media Alliance (GEMA) and the Career Education Center are again collaborating to offer the GEMA Externship Program, a unique opportunity for undergraduate seniors, MBA, Law and all other students enrolled in a graduate program at Georgetown. The externship provides students the unique opportunity to spend time with experienced professionals in entertainment and media, and get a firsthand look at day-to-day operations in the industry. Specifically, students will attend a number of individual or group meetings (ie, “informational interviews”) with professionals representing a broad spectrum of experiences within the industry. (See sample schedule attached.) While each schedule of informational interviews is individually designed with a student’s particular interests in mind, the larger goal of the externship program is to facilitate a greater understanding of the industry as a whole.
Applications for 2013-14 will open August 28, 2013
