    Beyond the Yellow Border 

    Checking out that yellow borderBy Dean’s Intern Jana Kleemeier at National Geographic

    Hi! My name is Jana Kleemeier and I’m a senior majoring in PR & Strategic Communications and minoring in Marketing. I am thrilled to have this opportunity to share my experiences adventuring with the National Geographic Channels.

    First, let me give you a quick intro about myself. I was born in Chicago, moved from the US to Saudi Arabia when I was 6-years-old. I grew up on an American compound on the Eastern Provence of Saudi with my family. The friends I grew up with are from every continent of the world. Because Saudi is so centrally located, traveling to exotic countries (unlike the US) is not taboo. It was growing up in Saudi where I realized I wanted to end up working for a company that stood for something bigger than itself… what better place to intern for than National Geographic?

    Visual Storytelling at USA TODAY

    Taking a selfie at USA TODAY during a lunch break

    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 …)

    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.

    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.
