Would-be student interns get help from Collegetown Web
Johns Hopkins students now have a network through
which they can look for opportunities to work as interns.
Baltimore Collegetown, a consortium of 15 area colleges and
universities, has added a spot on its Web site where local
employers can post descriptions of their organizations,
overview of the internship and application deadline.
The form is then sent to the career centers on each
Collegetown campus to distribute through the channels that
work best at each institution; interns then contact
prospective employers with their resumes in the way that
the employer determines-via e-mail, phone or letter. To
check it out, go to

Saturday, March 26.

brief and informal but meaningful to those who honor the
