Advice

Participate in at least one internship in your intended career field in order to get a feel for what the full job entails before graduation. I had the opportunity to participate at an internship during my time at the University of Miami and it helped to show me where I could possibly be one day if I worked hard and applied myself.

I loved the fact that this internship allowed me to see how a local news station is operated. I was able to work with sales, engineering, news, production, promotions, and sports.

News Editor

May 2018 • Harrisburg, PA

What I liked

I like that I am a part of a company that strives to always be the best and get better. I enjoy the company of my co-workers too. I also like that it is in the field I studied in college.

What I wish was different

I would have liked to have been offered an on air job right out of college.

Advice

Take any job you can get out of college in the field you want to be in. It'll get your foot in the door and give you much needed contacts.
