Archived Ad: Artist & Computer Scientist Seeks Internship Advice

I’m a little lost as to what I should look for in a job search. I love my studio art major and I have experience with graphic design, but I also study computer science. I like the idea of combining these two things in front-end design, but I also love working with people – especially kids. I taught in a museum a few years ago and really enjoyed it. I am also interested in marketing/design. I need to start thinking about an internship for the summer, but I don’t know where to start – especially with all of these things I think I’d like to do. I’d appreciate any advice!

Archived Ad: Junior Passionate About Women’s Rights Seeks Advice on Non-profit and Campaign Work

My name is Hailey Magee, and I am currently a junior who will be spending Spring 2014 in Washington DC at American University’s Washington Semester Program. I will be taking courses with AU and also interning for EMILY’s List. I am passionate about reproductive justice and women’s rights. I have served as president of the Feminist Majority Leadership Alliance, WMGS UDR, and this semester founded and chartered NARAL Pro-Choice on the Brandeis campus. In the future, I would like to work for an non-profit or issue advocacy organization (like NARAL), work on campaigns for state and federal legislators, and one day run for office myself. In DC, I would love to chat or meet up with some Brandeis alum who can offer insight into non-profit and campaign work specifically with regards to reproductive justice or women’s rights. Advice about how to make myself more marketable to these fields, especially in the DC community, would be incredibly helpful. Thank you!

Archived Ad: Wisdom from the Art World

I am a Studio Art (painter) major graduating this May. I am also the Marketing and Communications intern at Hiatt Career Center, President of the Student Committee for the Rose Art Museum, and a Roosevelt Fellow (peer academic advisor for first year students). I would love to hear from alums and parents who also have BAs in Fine Arts and have pursued careers in visual arts, museums, galleries, arts non-profits and higher education. What kinds of paths did you take to get to where you are today? What cities are best for young artists? As a person dedicated to making art, how did/do you manage to earn a living while making your art? For those who did not go down a studio route, how did you get involved in the museum or gallery world? What kinds of opportunities exist in the marketing and communications fields for the art world?
