Taylor media students do internships all over the country and around the world, typically during or after their junior year. Read a few internship reports below:
Matt interned with Focus Features, producers of Corraline, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Lost in Translation and many other Hollywood films. Matt coordinated a marketing presentation that all interns make to the management. His boss was so impressed that he called it the best intern presentation ever. With a response like that, it's not surprising that Matt got hired by Focus Features right after graduation.
Jonathan interned with Disney Imagineering, focused on theme park media production. His internship was a direct result of placing as a finalist in Disney's ImagiNations competition for which he designed a prototype theme park ride. For Jonathan, as a lifelong Disney fan, this internship was a great launching point for his post-Taylor career in entertainment.
Chase interned with National Geographic Television in Washington, D.C., working on a series about the mysteries of the ocean. He got his position with a little help from another Taylor graduate who worked there. Chase was thrilled to find they shoot with some of the same equipment he had learned on campus.
Eliza, interested in combining public relations and the music industry, worked as a Marketing & Promotions intern for radio station WYEP, Pittsburgh, PA. Her boss said, "Eliza has been a great asset to our Marketing and Promotions dept. We couldn't have been happier with her performance. She demonstrates great commitment, character and pride in her work. We'd love to have other students from Taylor if they're anything like Eliza!"Sarah, a senior, worked for San Francisco's Center for Digital Storytelling, a not-for-profit community arts organization that assists youth and adults in using media tools to share, record and value the stories of their lives. The goal is to use media in ways that promote artistic expression, health, well-being and justice--goals that fit well with Sarah's vision to use media in positive ways.
