Coming Full Circle at Discovery

By Dean’s Intern Brianna Hall at Discovery Communications

The time has come, my final rotation in what has been an amazing nine months with Discovery Communications. I started in Consumer Insights and Culture and learned how Discovery takes on the big questions of national sentiment after the election and linear cord-cutting. When I was on the Account Team, I learned the advantage of having an in-house creative agency to deliver world-class marketing campaigns for Discovery’s Gold Rush and TLC’s Unexpected. Now, I’m a jack-of-all-trades intern splitting my time between three teams. I am working with the Global LifeWorks & Inclusion Team, bringing meaningful employee engagement programs, events, and initiatives to all employees in the US! Some of the events include Black History Month celebration, Kids Day, and Autism Awareness Month. I spend the other half of my time with the Corporate Communication team organizing consumer products, trade shows, and managing social media; and with the Global Events team planning one of the company’s favorite CSR initiatives: Say Yes to the Prom. Being a #DiscoveryIntern was a highlight of my college career (not just because I was able to play with puppies – though Puppy Bowl is the happiest I’ve ever been) but because it’s a company that encourages tackling big questions, celebrates creativity, and fosters professional and personal growth. After this year with Discovery, I feel I am now ready to graduate in May and start my career in Public Relations in New York.
