Before she graduated from USC, Laura contacted us 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.
“Covering so many community events has really peaked my interest in government. I’m more interested in law right now. While I learned so much about journalism on my internship, I’m realizing that I’d like 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 to explore her career interests.
