    My daughter, a current SU student, is looking for  a summer job or internship in the area of film making, production, set design, camerawork, or anything related to film or tv production.  She is creative, bright, talented, and a hard worker.
    Any alumni out there who might be able to help? The career center has so far come up empty....

    Hi Cliff,
    I'm guessing your daughter has tried these things, but here are a couple ideas.
    * Make sure she has joined the Seattle University Career Services LinkedIn page.  She could post her job interests there in case anyone else there can help.
    * Talk to her favorite professors to see what connections they have.
    * Some departments of the School of Arts & Sciences had newsletters where they share internship and job opportunities.  She could check with her department to see if they have a newsletter that she isn't getting for some reason.
    * Put a post on the School of Arts and Sciences Facebook page.
    Are you an alumnus?  If so, you could join the Seattle University Alumni LinkedIn page and check out alumni who might be able to help.
    I wish your daughter good luck in her search!
