Communications and Multimedia

Do you enjoy telling stories through video and pictures? Do you get excited about being able to creatively document an event and show your work off to others? The Multimedia Intern will demonstrate their multimedia capabilities along with their teamwork and project management skills by working on meaningful, high-impact projects. This internship will allow you to fine-tune and develop your videography and photography skills in a professional environment. Interns will collaborate and coordinate with Research Park leadership and the EnterpriseWorks intern team.
