ASU DPC Graduate Student Services Survey- For Grad Students Only
GPSA is the governing body that represents ALL ASU graduate students, but very few ASU-DPC grads seem to know much about us. Few grads know about the free money GPSA gives away, the events we put on, or the professional development we offer. The director of GPSA has created a small survey with hopes of changing that, and ask that you take a few minutes to complete it.

This is not an ASU-wide survey- it only concerns graduate students here at ASU-DPC and the goal is to improve existing services for grad students. If you want to add your input, please click the survey link. Thank you.

INTERNSHIPS

Fall 2012 or spring 2013 Internship
AZFoothills.com

We would like to offer one intern to be a web contributor for AZFoothills.com via the “In My Shoes” section. This would be an unpaid (but with plenty of perks) semester or year-long internship.

In the past, several interns have used their passions to guide this section, and it usually has become a fashion-y blog, which is fine, but we really want to broaden it out and give this intern a chance for us and our readers to experience life in their shoes.

It could have features on fashion trends and technology trends, and other features on fun places to eat, great things to do for cheap and interesting study habits students have. They could also highlight different star athletes or professors from ASU in a fun Q & A or something.

Essentially, we want to share what people are doing, and give a positive spin on ASU culture. We don’t want clubbing, partying, but more of highlighting the great aspects of ASU.

PART-TIME PAID JOBS

AZ Governor’s Office Seeks Video Production Help
Project deadline: January 7
Video length: 10-15 mins
Stipend: Up to $2500

The Arizona Governor’s Office of Energy Policy is seeking help on creating educational materials on important energy issues in the state. They would like to produce a 10-15 min documentary-style video (“Energy 101 for Policymakers”) to show at an event in January. ASU’s Energy Policy Innovation Council (EPIC) is helping to coordinate this effort. We are looking to hire students to help with filming and editing. EPIC will be responsible for developing the script and storyboard and arranging interviews, though we may seek guidance on these elements. Interested students should contact Edward Burgess at Edward.Burgess@asu.edu. Please be prepared to share work samples.

Student Media
Student Media has two student marketing/ad sales positions open. One for downtown and one in Tempe. Students will spend half of their time on assignment — doing marketing and sales support for the State Press — and half of their time working their own accounts for commission. All students will have a professional mentor. We require a commitment of 15 hours per week and the pay is $7.65. Interested students can contact Jason Manning.
