Over the summer media, journalism, and film department senior, Emily Geraghty, participated in an exciting internship in New York City. Geraghty had the opportunity to intern with Viacom and MTV Networks in Digital Production for LogoTV.com and NewNowNext.com.
She learned of the position through her own personal use of social media. Geraghty says, “Ironically enough, I can thank Facebook for my internship. I had posted on Facebook about applying for internships in New York, and friends and family started sending me e-mail addresses and phone numbers for contacts they knew at different media corporations.”
Through the Logo internship she gained experience in online production, video editing, social marketing, copy writing, and video content development, among other skills and experiences valuable to the media industry. Gerharty adds, “Because digital production for the web is a relatively new component of television channels, I developed sought after skills and experience in a job market that is constantly growing.” Geraghty plans on going into online content production upon graduation in December.
The media, journalism, and film department office coordinates internship opportunities connecting students and the industry.
