Welcome to The Art of the Internship! This website was created by a group of 17 Duke undergraduates who participated in a variety of different internships during the summer of 2014, and wanted to share their experiences in the hopes of helping other students. They created this website, and the blogs and digital stories you will find here as part of their involvement in Duke University’s Writing 270, Composing the Internship Experience: Digital Rhetoric and Social Media Discourse, taught by Denise Comer.
The content in this website touches on all the most important points of the internship experience – from finding the right one for you to getting the most out of the opportunities you are given. You will notice an emphasis on the use the social media as a means of enhancing your internship and pushing your boundaries.
