Kristina Hagan- On Campus Internship Spotlight

Did you know there is an internship on campus that is focused particularly around social media? Northwest Missouri State University student, Kristina Hagan along with two other students, nailed this great internship opportunity this spring semester.

This semester Hagan and her coworkers have been working eight hours a week at the University Affairs Office working on Northwest’s social media websites. Hagan updates the websites with upcoming events and information for Northwest students.

“I usually check the Northwest calendar to get ideas about upcoming events to tweet about,” Hagan said. “I also answer questions on our Facebook account and pin ideas on our Pinterest boards. Basically anything to do with social media is what I help with.”

Hagan along with many students in the Communication and Mass Media Department need an internship to graduate. Summer internships are always a popular choice but who knew you could complete those credits during the school year right on campus? University Affairs looks for three Social Media Interns each semester to work on their social media sites.

“After taking social media strategies I thought I would be well qualified for this job,” said Hagan. “One of my friends told me about it and so I applied!”
