    Visual Storytelling at USA TODAY

    By Dean’s Intern Berna Elibuyuk at USA TODAY

    Walking in on my first day at USA TODAY I was hesitant just as any new intern would be. I was ecstatic to have been given the opportunity to work alongside the design team at a place where breaking news and stories are constantly being told every minute of the day. I was given a wonderfully warm welcome by my supervisor and everyone on the design team and, later on, given a tour of where I would be working for the next couple of months. It is truly amazing to see what goes on behind the scenes at such a fast paced environment. I never realized how much creative work goes into USA TODAY’s newspaper and website on a daily basis. From info graphics for print and web, to interactive media on the web and for mobile, USA TODAY’s design team is on top of their creative game! (More …)

    Press Releases & Even More Puppies at Animal Planet 

    By Dean’s Intern Hannah Sedgwick at Animal Planet

    My internship with the communications team at Animal Planet has absolutely exceeded my expectations. And yes, the puppies might have something to do with it.

    Hanging out at Animal Planet’s puppy cam pool party with two of my new best friends.

    I spend the bulk of my time typing away at press releases, media lists, pitches and episode descriptions for upcoming Animal Planet shows. It’s been such an incredible experience to see what happens behind the scenes at one of the coolest networks around. I’ve had  real, substantial experiences that with undoubtedly be a huge help when I start my MA in Strategic Communication on August 31st. Like I said in my previous post, I don’t really have a background in PR but it’s a career path I would love to pursue in the future. Having these on-the-job experiences in advance of starting my formal schooling on the subject will be invaluable. (More …)

    Aloha from National Geographic 

    Maeghan says “aloha” to NGC with Nat Geo WILD’s Aloha Vet, Dr. Scott Sims

    By Dean’s Intern Meaghan Crociata at National Geographic

    Did you know that “aloha” in Hawaiian means “hello” AND “goodbye”? As the semester comes to a close, I wanted to give my last aloha to National Geographic Channel and reflect on my time as an intern. Interning for National Geographic Channel has taught me so much about the entertainment industry, the different avenues of marketing and communications and most importantly, giving me insight about my choice of career.

    A bittersweet farewell to The Post

    Zach at The Washington Post post

    By Dean’s Intern Zach Cohen at The Washington Post, May 2014

    I didn’t believe what I was hearing. Vernon Loeb, the Local editor for THE Washington Post, was calling my cell phone in Israel offering me an internship in one of the best newspapers in the country.

    I had dreamed about that moment but never expected it to happen. I had started reading The Post as soon as I arrived in Washington four years ago. I’m a print subscriber. I get the breaking news alerts. I turned to it first for political news and updates about my neighborhood, my home in Wesley Heights.

    In the last four months, I’ve had slow days and busy days. There were days I scanned through Twitter and blogs for story ideas or plugged away on long-term projects. There were days were I bylined two articles for the next day’s paper.

    I went to the Hill to report on accountability at The National Zoo and The White House for “Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day.” Crime stories in Northwest D.C., D.C. Superior Court, a Baltimore TV station, Great Falls, Seven Corners, Blacksburg, Ferndale, and Hyattsville. Features in Capitol Hill, Quantico, Charles County. I wrote obituaries for a foreign correspondent turned Pulitzer-prize winning editor, a blind hiker, a TV actora fair housing proponent, and an octopus. I reported on local politics in D.C. and College Park. I did stories on preserving the environment and history.

    I contributed to stories yet to be published and some that landed on A1, from the Pepco buyout to a homicide case spanning decades and continents. And let’s not forget lots of snow stories.

    Somebody told me recently that the best advice they ever got was to treat every story as the most important story ever assigned.

    Each one of those stories, that day, was the most important story I had ever written. There’s something incredibly special about local reporting, writing about stories that matter intensely to your neighbors. To some of the people I interviewed, getting a call from The Washington Post was as much an honor as it was for me to say every day, “Hi, this is Zach Cohen from The Washington Post. How are you?”

    Last Wednesday was my last day working at The Washington Post. To get to work feet away from some of the best journalists in the business was just an incredible honor and one I will always treasure.

    Learning the Ropes at the Washington Post

    Sink or swim.

    That’s what it’s like to be a Dean’s Intern at The Washington Post. It’s thrilling, terrifying and satisfying all at the same time—a roller coaster of emotions I never thought I would experience at a 9 to 5 job.

    Unlike many of my previous internships, the Post requires interns to be at the same level of competence as any of their entry-level reporters. There are no “easy” stories or “intern jobs” that we get assigned. It’s be a great reporter, or don’t. Sink or swim.

    I chose swim.
