You're Hired! Student and Alumni Stories

Bailey Thompson ’09 Strategic Communications

Bailey Thompson is currently interning for the Bumbershoot Music Festival with OneReel. In addition to this internship, in the past she has interned for Fox Sports Net Northwest, the Experience Music Project, and 300ppa. Bailey’s success in obtaining these great experiences, she believes, is due to the cover letter: “For each internship, I think the cover letter is what most clearly explained my skills for the position and set me apart from other candidates.” However, if you don’t have as much previous experience as Bailey, she recommends that students “volunteer at non-profit organizations and ask to work on projects that will give you relevant work experience to add to your resume.”
