Internships

Employers in the communications field need more than words on paper! We need a tangible product to evaluate a potential employee's ability. Blue Ridge Communications -11 provides experience by implementing the concepts students learn in college. Our "on the job" experience is not offered by many other companies! Although our students are not paid, the knowledge and experience they acquire is priceless!

BRC-11 offers a limited number of unpaid internships to students who have completed at least one year of college. We offer both credit and non-credit internships at our main studio in Ephrata, Pennsylvania. Internships are awarded to the strongest candidates after an interview process. Please plan ahead and apply early!
