Opinion: Email to one of the higher ups at CUNY about my potential journalism internship.


Greetings Baruch College and CUNY,

I’m a journalism major. 

As part of the requirements to graduate as a journalism major I have to either intern for a news media company or take a 4000 level class. 

I’m going to try to see if I can land a job as an intern somewhere. 

I just wanted to mention one quick thing about it to you. 

I never mention anything negative about law enforcement to anyone at Baruch College. 

I never mention anything negative about anything to anyone at Baruch College. 

I have the utmost respect for you and your team. 

I’m guessing that I’m going to have to send hundreds or thousands of emails to news media companies in the next few weeks to try and land an internship. 

With remote working it can be any news media company nationwide. 

If anyone from any news media company contacts me back I will treat them with the same professionalism and respect that I treat everyone at Baruch College. 

If a person that I’m trying to land an internship with starts asking me about law enforcement because they see something I’ve posted online, I will say with all due respect I can’t talk about it. 

I view everything connected with this internship as being on campus at Baruch College and I don’t talk about anything negative at Baruch College. 

If someone is interested in helping me they can give me the internship. 

If anyone asks me about my living situation, of course I would let them know that I’m living in the street homeless. 

I’m not complaining about being homeless. 

I’m making the best of being homeless and trying to elevate my situation.

Thank you and have a great day.

Mark Pine
