Laura has many interests. When she was a junior at the Cambridge School of Weston, she was the Co-Editor of the student newspaper and the school’s literary magazine and sought an internship in journalism. We placed Laura with the editor of a local newspaper where she refined her journalistic skills. Laura joined a team of reporters as they covered many community events. She learned how to interview, write and edit.
She writes, “As much as I valu internship I had last summer, I don’t think journalism is my calling. I’m more interested in law right now, and plan to be involved in student government on campus.”
One of the most valuable aspects of internships is when they lead to a new path and direction for a student. For Laura, a follow-up internship in law or government would be an interesting next step as she continues re her career interests.
