The Office of SUNY Applied Learning is pleased to announce their National Intern Day SUNY video competition! In honor of National Intern Day happening on Thursday, July 26th, 2018,  SUNY is hosting a student intern video competition. They are asking all SUNY students who are currently involved in an internship or plan to intern this summer to submit a one-minute video answering the question: “Why do you intern?


Their guidelines be found at the following link:


The submission deadline for all videos is Friday July 132018


Video Format

Answer the question “Why do you intern? with a 1 minute video that mentions your name, SUNY campus, internship site, and why you choose to participate in an internship.


SUNY students participating in credit and/or non-credit internships are eligible to submit a video.


Video submissions will be closed captioned to ensure accessibility for all viewers.


How to Create a Video


Be creative: the more creative, the better! Having your site supervisor make an appearance in the video is a plus.


Make sure to speak clearly and keep your remarks simple and straightforward. Make sure your speaking volume is good and that is transferred into the video footage; don’t be too far from the camera.


The video should be shot using a camera. Using a cellphone is ok, but make sure sound and video quality is good. Check your surroundings, make sure anything that is in the frame of your video is appropriate. Avoid ambient noise like electronics buzzing or machines running that may distract from the video.


Hashtags being used throughout National Intern Day: Feel free to use the following hashtags on social media on July 26th for National Intern Day:  #NationalInternDay #SUNY (please use both hashtags when posting and of course hashtag your campus!) You are welcome to add our campus’ hashtag which is #npinterns

Sending in the Video

You can submit your video through Hightail by visiting or by clicking the link below. **Please keep in mind that you do need to make a free account (or use an existing Hightail account) in order to submit your video. Instructions on how to create a Hightail account can be found at the above link.



There will be one winner randomly selected from each SUNY sector. SUNY sectors include University Centers, University Colleges, Technology Colleges, and Community Colleges. Each winner will receive a $50 Visa gift card. Winners will be contacted shortly after the July 13th video submission deadline. Winners and other participants will be featured in the National Intern Day video compilation.

 We look forward to sharing all of the amazing internship experiences SUNY students are having!  If you have any additional questions, feel free to send an email to: or




The ability to network with people is crucial. However, some people are put off by networking; they think it is phony and oozes insincerity. Networking can be helpful and lead to career success. This workshop will help you develop a network of friendly, helpful people who share your interests.

The Workshop will be held in HUM 214 on Wednesday, April 25th from 12:30 until 1:30 pm.

I look forward to meeting and networking with you!
