Deadspin Is Looking For Summer Interns

The good ship Deadspin ( is looking for some reliable deckhands as we sail toward harbor this summer. Do you think you could be our intern?

Here are some questions to guide you. Do you know sports? Are you familiar with Deadspin's style and content? Do you write well? Do you read a lot? Are you free at least two days per week from June to August? (We can be flexible about precise dates.) Are you based in the New York City area? (This part is important, so we've bolded it.)

If you answered yes to all of those, you just might make a fine Deadspin summer intern. Here's what you'd do: plenty of reporting, perhaps some writing, social media, stuff like that. (Interest in combing through public records is preferred but not necessary.) Meanwhile, we'd teach you plenty about what it is we do, and with any luck you'll conclude your time here wiser and more reassured about what awaits you in the wide worlds of sports and journalism. We'd like for you to get college credit, too, but we can work something out if that's not possible. And all of this would take place in our glamorous, air-conditioned Soho office.

So, potential Deadspin intern, if you're interested, please send an email to me ( and Dom ( This email should include a couple paragraphs about you and why you'd be a good fit for us. Don't be stuffy. Please also include one or two links to published pieces of writing, and paste your résumé as text into the body of the email. And tell us what your schedule for the summer might look like. No attachments, please.

Don't take it personally if we don't get back to you—we can't reply to everyone. But if you're our gal or our guy, we'll be in touch shortly.

Media@IU: a portal to all things media at Indiana University


Media@IU is a cross-campus collaborative effort of faculty, staff, and students interested and engaged in research, teaching, and creative activity in the broad field of media, communication, and the cultural and creative industries. One of the goals of this project is to provide a portal to resources for teaching, research and creative activities regarding media and communication at IU. The project originated in 2009, and includes graduate students and faculty from all over IU.

 From 2010-2012 a group of volunteer graduate students from Telecommunications, Education, Journalism, and Informatics gathered information and built a database of all things 'media and communication' at Indiana University, available online at: This site intends to provide a portal to all things media at Indiana University, including:
*     over 700 undergraduate and graduate courses related to media and
creative industries regularly offered across the IUB campus, searchable by unit and discipline;
*     over 70 student organizations active on campus, engaging in
activities related to the creative industries (from media production to performing arts);
*     overview and contacts of all the resources related to media and
communication available to students and faculty on the IUB campus;
*     list of companies and professionals in and around the Bloomington
area engaged in media production and management (offering internship and employment opportunities to IU students and graduates).

Currently (2012-2013) the project is in a third phase, where we develop a graduate student and research section for the website (including information on internal and external funding opportunities), and organize an annual Media@IU conference (tentatively scheduled for each Fall semester) where graduate students and faculty present research and creative activity related to media and communication.

As you meet with IU students and faculty across campus, please consider pointing those interested in media - including, but not limited to:
journalism, film and television production, radio, computer and video games, new/mobile/social media, online networks, advertising, marketing communications, and public relations, media management and economics, and the media business - to this cross-campus website. Please let us know whether this resource is helpful in your advising work, and how we can make it better!

Speak Like A Business

The College Alumni Board invites you to attend the next College Connection with IU alumna, Jennifer Crittenden, BA'81, MBA'88.

Good decisions in business are based on quantifiable information, but being able to explain what the numbers mean is as important as getting the numbers right in the first place. Business leaders must demonstrate strong financial skills and be able to articulate their interpretation of the data. Women, in particular, when working in corporate America, should learn to speak the language of the business game, even if it means learning a few sports idioms.

Event Details:
Free Luncheon and Presentation
DATE: Wednesday, April 18, 2012
TIME: 12:00pm - 1:30pm
LOCATION: Indiana Memorial Union, Frangipani Room, Mezzanine Level

Raised on a farm in southern Indiana and following a B.A. in Linguistics and French, Jennifer was an unlikely candidate to graduate with an MBA from the Kelley School of Business and enter corporate America. To her surprise, she excelled in her new world and spent the next twenty years building a scintillating career, rising from Financial Analyst to Chief Financial Officer, working for big pharma and biotech companies in the US, Europe, and the UK. Now she has now come full circle, returning from numbers and technology, to her love of words by putting her passion to print.  Ms. Crittenden recently published her first book, The Discreet Guide for Executive Women. . .How to Work Well with Men (and other difficulties).

New Optician/Technician Program Options

New Optician/Technician Program Options
Beginning Fall 2012

Introducing a new 2-semester Certificate in Optometric Technology/Opticianry with optional 2-year degree

Optician/Technician Program
2-semester Track:  Certificate in Optometric Technology/Opticianry (29 credits)
2-year Track:  Associate of Science degree in Optometric Technology/Opticianry (60 credits)

Students will have the option to complete a 2-semester certificate in optometric technology/opticianry or build on this same certificate core curriculum (29 credits) to earn a 2-year associate of science degree (60 credits).  The new fast track certificate will allow students to learn marketable skills and enter the workforce more quickly than in the past.  The need for trained personnel in the ophthalmic field and eye care industry is very high.  It is anticipated that the job opportunities and placement rate will be excellent for students completing either track of the program.  The placement rate has been 100% for the past 5 years for the 2-year degree graduates.  The U.S. Department of Labor Occupational Outlook Handbook (2010-2011Edition), states the job outlook as very good through 2018. 

The 2-year associate of science degree has been in existence since 1972 and will continue to be an option for students.  The new curriculum format will give students the option to gain clinic practical skills and count general education courses toward the associate degree (29 credits from the certificate core curriculum + 31 additional credits to equal 60 credit hours).  The general education courses may be taken prior to or after the completion of the certificate core courses.

For students wanting a 4-year degree, some IU Bloomington schools/departments accept optician/technician program credits toward a bachelor’s degree.

Students learn theoretical concepts and practical skills in the areas of anatomy and physiology of the eye; ophthalmic procedures and testing; office procedures; optical concepts and ophthalmic optics; ophthalmic dispensing; ophthalmic lens laboratory procedures; and contact lenses.

Students must apply and be accepted to Indiana University Bloomington either as a new incoming freshman or as a transfer student; (  In addition, a short separate application must be completed for the Optician/Technician program (same application for both the certificate and the associate degree).  Although most students have completed some college course work before deciding to enter the program, there are no prerequisites.
