Interning this past semester has taught me more than I ever thought I could learn, not only about my field, but about myself as well. I was lucky enough to have an internship in the Marketing Office at the College. During my time there, I experienced first-hand every aspect of marketing, including photography and videography, advertising, web content management, social media management, and so much more.

As someone graduating in the very near future, the idea of finding a job keeps me up at night. I was lucky to get an amazing education, but soon I will have an amazing amount of education loans. Fortunately, the Mount’s Career Center teaches you how to fly before being kicked out of your comfy nest.
I came into junior year a new person after my summer internship at the YWCA of the City of New York. It taught me a great deal regarding professionalism and what the work place was like. Realizing that I would be studying abroad in the coming summer, I knew my next/final internship had to be completed in the spring of 2012, and I had my heart set on one place, Orange County Choppers.
With YWCA-NYC being a non-profit organization dedicated to empowering women, and Orange County Choppers being a custom motorcycle company that’s part of a hit television series, I got exactly what I wanted – the chance to test my strengths and see if I could handle doing PR work for two completely different companies.
