Communications and social media

Communications interns weren't a hot commodity until social networking exploded.

"There's been a big increase in small businesses relying on students to start up social media marketing," says Gary Alan Miller, assistant director for university career services at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. "This has been a big area of growth, particularly for younger workers."

While average intern pay hovers around $11 an hour, Miller says students who have social media skills may have more bargaining power. Where most paid internships are designed to give students real-world experience, companies without a social media marketing program may tap students raised on Facebook and Twitter to show them the ropes. Students should check out their college career center and specialized Web sites like Mediabistro.com, CreativeJobsCentral.com and JournalismJobs.com.
