I believe my colleague Sean Collier spoke to one of your magazine-writing classes a few years ago.
I am reaching out today to let you know we’re still accepting internship applications for the fall 2015 term. I believe Seton Hill is on our e-distribution list for internship details, but I thought it was best to ensure someone on staff had updated information for the next semester. If someone has an interest and submits the application a few days after the deadline (July 13), that is fine.
Please let me know if you have questions. Thanks for your time.

What Can You Do With an English Degree?
It’s all too common for English majors to hear “What can you do with an English degree?” from well-meaning relatives and friends, implying that the most viable career for an English major is that of a “starving artist.” So what can you do with an English degree? Well, it turns out, you can do a lot of things. Seton Hill English graduates share their stories of how the English program at Seton Hill helped them land fulfilling careers where they use English everyday. –Regina Solomond (2015 Seton Hill Creative Writing Major; New Media Journalism Minor)
After graduating Seton Hill University (SHU) in 2014, new media journalism major Olivia Goudy immediately began writing as a reporter for the Herald Standard, a daily newspaper in Uniontown, Pennsylvania.
Goudy’s determination and persistence helped her in securing her job. She applied for an internship with the newspaper her junior year, and even though she did not get the internship, she approached them about wanting to do freelance work to get into the business. During her senior year at SHU, she continued communicating with the Herald Standard. She contacted one of the editors about a career in journalism in March, and coincidentally it happened to be the day another reporter had put in his two week’s notice. “Everything fell into place after that,” said Goudy, who was the Editor-in-Chief for the SHU newspaper, the Setonian.
A SHU graduate sent me this job announcement:
We know who you are. You’re the reporter in your newsroom who sees stories in a very different way; who isn’t satisfied with the way stories are being reported, the way they’ve always been reported. We know who you are. We’ve been there.
Watchdog.org, a leader in online journalism, is looking for self-starting reporters who want to hold government at all levels accountable, who know exactly where to look for waste, fraud and abuse. Reporters who know how to tell those stories in compelling ways. We move fast and don’t have time for someone to learn on the job.
We have immediate openings in Iowa, Texas and Wisconsin. We also have opportunities that allow the right candidates to work on national issues from wherever they live. We offer a flexible work schedule and a competitive compensation package.
Watchdog.org is a project of The Franklin Center for Government and Public Integrity.
Qualified candidates should submit the following application materials to Mary Ellen Beatty at MBeatty@Watchdog.org:
