Do you want to work in fashion?
CollegeFashionista.com is a fashion website for those who are passionate about the latest styles and trends on campuses around the world. This website allows students and other young adults to view photographs of what their peers are wearing around college campuses and gain valuable insight and tips to incorporate these looks into their own college fashion wardrobes. CollegeFashionista is looking for ambitious, goal-orientated interns this spring to report on the fashion trends happening on their campus. Their interns, aka Style Gurus, are in charge of capturing street style photography around their college campus as well as creating articles based on their findings.

The position runs from the week of December 21 2015 to May 20 2016 and is unpaid, however, CollegeFashionista will support requests for course credit. Students must own or have access to a camera for the position. SLR cameras preferred. CollegeFashionista is looking for outgoing students who want to expand their writing portfolio and contribute to a growing online media company. The final date to apply is December 7, 2015. However, applicants will be accepted on a rolling basis and they encourage you to apply before then.

K-12 Teaching Jobs for Education, Arts & Science Majors
For the 2016-17 school year, hundreds of private/independent schools around the South will turn to Southern Teachers for help finding the best teachers available.  The teaching environment in these schools can be exceptional:  small class sizes, students intent on preparing for college, and a focus on learning—not on test taking. Teachers certification is not necessarily required for these positions. There are a few jobs listed that begin in January 2016, so December graduates seeking good jobs are especially encouraged to apply. STA will hold three Job Fairs for teachers.  Participants must be active candidates with Southern Teachers, so that’s yet another reason to apply now.
