Internship notice from Dr. George Sylvie

2006 BPEF Internship Program Update



As you know, genuine hands-on experience outside the classroom is critical
for the development of students interested in journalism and publishing. As
your students begin to consider the internship opportunities available to
them, we hope you will encourage them to apply to American Business Media's
2006 Business Press Educational Foundation Internship Program (BPEF). The
BPEF program was established 21 years ago as a means to expose talented
college students interested journalism, media, communications and
publishing to the variety of career opportunities available in the business
media industry.

ABM has more than 280 members who publish a variety of publications and
operate Web sites, online publications and produce trade shows and
in-person events. Last year the BPEF Program placed 37 students in
full-time paid internships with business media companies; six of these
students were hired full time following their internships. In this, our
centennial year, our goal is to broaden the reach of the BPEF Program to
schools around the US to meet the growing demand for talented b-to-b media

As ABM is a non-profit association with limited resources, we ask that you
assist our efforts to match qualified students with internship
opportunities by forwarding this message to internship coordinators or the
appropriate career service representatives at your school, university or
department. Because of faculty position changes, if you have received this
in error, we ask that you kindly forward it to the appropriate faculty by
clicking 'Forward e-mail' at the bottom of this page.

An interactive BPEF Web site will go live in February, making it easier to
download and submit applications, learn more about the program, hear
testimony from former BPEF interns now working with business media
companies, and review 2006 internship opportunities.

Here is information about the 2006 BPEF Internship Program requirements and access the 2006 application forms.

We encourage you to share this information with your students and feel free
to forward it to other faculty members, students or companies. The deadline
for student applications to be e-mailed, faxed or postmarked and mailed to
this office is Tuesday, February 21, 2006. More details about program
requirements are available by clicking the link above.
