Hear From Our Past Interns

As a digital media intern for ALIVE Podcast Network, I was most excited about creating and crafting posts that would reach plenty of viewers across a variety of platforms, and I was able to do that, but I also learned a lot about podcasting and it really introduced me into the world of podcasting.

Having a virtual internship made this experience much more accessible to me compared to other in-person internships. I was able to challenge my editing and designing skills in a professional workspace, but I also learned how to communicate with my boss, delegate tasks to my teammates, and manage my time responsibly. Learning all these things and how to keep a work-life balance as a high schooler was extremely insightful, and it solidified my pursuit of graphic design when I was uncertain about my career path. After this experience, I feel much more confident entering other internships and jobs in the future.
