Press Club Seeks Summer Interns

ARLnow is seeking a pair of interns to work with us this summer in our Rosslyn offices.

We are looking for an intern on the news side, who will write bylined articles for the site while helping out with research, note-taking and some administrative tasks. We are also looking for an intern on the business side, who will help support our sales team while working on some marketing projects.

The ideal candidate for each will be a self-starter with clear career goals, who has extracurricular experience and a strong drive to succeed. Those who have worked on either the editorial or sales side of a student newspaper or broadcast operation are encouraged to apply.

College students who are interested in this opportunity should send a resume, cover letter and any representative work samples to [email protected]. Please also note whether you will be receiving academic credit for the internship.

Those who want to skip the initial screening process can also talk to us directly at an upcoming startup internship fair.

Numerous technology, media and other startup companies will be participating at the event, to take place Friday afternoon (March 28) at 1400 Key Blvd in Rosslyn.

“We want to help college students come into the new entrepreneurship world,” said Raymond Rahbar, founder of the UberOffices coworking community, which is organizing the internship event for its member companies. “[We] think they’ll greatly benefit [by working] with a smaller team that can really show them all facets of business.”

Registration is required for the event.

“Probing the highly imaginative, inspired mind of Teresa Oaxaca is not altogether unlike having a present-day conversation with an Old Master,” says Nashville Arts Magazine.

Here is an unusual opportunity to learn from this incredibly talented and accessible artist, at Art House 7’s two-day oil painting workshop in October. Teresa will give 2 portrait painting demonstrations for 3 hours each morning. Students will then be painting from a clothed live model. Teresa will offer individual critiques that focus on materials, techniques, process and artistic vision. You’ll get jazzed up about painting and become more confident about your abilities.

Art House 7, Two-Day Oil Painting Workshop with Teresa Oaxaca. Saturday, October 22 and Sunday, October 23, 10 a.m.-4 p.m. EDT $250.

Validating one’s emotions has the power to heal, transform, and empower. What Is Validation? Every human being has feelings. We all have emotions that change over time, sometimes quickly, sometimes slowly. The question isn’t whether we feel; it’s how we handle feelings once they arise.

Building strategies to understand emotions is essential to positive mental health, and validation is one effective skill to practice.

Emotional validation is the process of understanding, embracing, and actively listening to another person’s feelings (or your own).

Understanding someone’s emotions doesn’t necessarily mean you approve of how they are feeling or reacting to something. You can be supportive in acknowledging and validating an emotional experience without agreeing or diminishing it. Validation is a skill to learn and improve over time. It may take practice, but the effort is most certainly worth it. Emotional validation has the power to enhance interpersonal communication and foster strong relationships.
