Greater Media Detroit is an Equal Opportunity Employer
Greater Media Detroit is committed to ongoing outreach efforts to insure that we make our employment opportunities known to as wide a range of potential candidates as possible. We have an extensive list of community organizations that we make aware of our job opening as they occur. If your organization would like to be included on this list, please e-mail us at email@example.com.
We also participate in supplemental recruitment efforts, both on an individual station level and as an employment group. Here are some examples:
WCSX, WRIF and WMGC each have ongoing internship programs in the programming, promotion and production departments of each station. These are semester-long, unpaid, for-credit programs that allow students to experience radio station operation first-hand. Students work side by side with station employees on station projects and promotions. In addition, time is provided by the department manager for question and answer sessions, which will explain and contextualize for the student the various procedures, techniques and events they encounter during the internship.
Our stations solicit intern candidates from a variety of educational institutions through placement offices, communication department contacts, and through student initiatives. Participating institutions have included:
Baker College Auburn Hills and Allen Park
Central Michigan University
Eastern Michigan University
Ferris State University
Grand Valley State University
Lawrence Technical University
Macomb Community College
Michigan State University
Oakland Community College
Saginaw Valley University
University of Michigan Dearborn
University of Michigan, Ann Arbor
University of Detroit/Mercy
Washtenaw Community College
Western Michigan University
Educational Institution Outreach
Greater Media Detroit has a standing relationship with the Specs Howard School of Communications. Our managers regularly speak to current and recent students to provide them with a real-world view of the radio industry. We cooperate with the placement staff of the school to identify and make contact with near-graduates and recent graduates and introduce them to the opportunities within Greater Media Detroit.
