The station has made contributions to the New York State Department of Labor Job Bank, which supplies current job openings, as well as resume and interview preparation.

 

(c) Initiative:  WDST Internship Program.

 

7 college students participated in WDST’s Internship program during this reporting cycle.

 

Interns majoring in programs related to the media industry received college credits from Marist College and SUNY New Paltz for participating in WDST’s internship program.  They received hands-on training in video production, marketing, promotions and website design. Interns also received training in our promotions department in marketing strategy, concert promotions and on-site remotes as well as our production department in producing commercials and on-air presentation.

 

Paid Internship Program:  One college student participated in the New York State Broadcasters Association Nelson J. Rockefeller Internship Program.  The program’s intention is to provide participating students (interns) the opportunity to witness and experience “first hand” the operational procedures of a radio or television station.

 

These Internships are for 180 hours and students are reimbursed in the form of wages at $10.50/per hour.  WDST’s Internship Program offers college students seeking a career in broadcasting a unique opportunity
