We are happy to report that The Voice has taken on four new interns this summer! Leah, Ronise, Meredith and Kent (L to R) are partaking in a four week “boot camp” internship during the month of June. Through the program, the interns have been enriching their knowledge on the history of advertising, participating in lectures, and dealing with clients firsthand. The internship experience provides the opportunity for the interns to gain academic, business, and marketing training in the context of group and individual projects. The interns are learning skills in copy and graphic design, print ads, websites, social media, and overall branding.
Meet the Interns:
Kent is currently a senior at the University of Bridgeport majoring in Public Relations. He is interning at The Voice as a video editor/art director. He wants to one day work as the marketing director for a non-profit. His interests include video production, star-gazing, and twiddling on the banjo.
Leah is an upcoming senior studying Psychology and Media & Communication at Muhlenberg College. She is interning at The Voice as part of the Accounts team, helping out with social media management, communication with clients, etc. Leah is currently on the executive board of her school’s activities council as the Head Comedy Chair, a position that entails organizing the comedy shows at the college. One day, she would like to get involved in the entertainment industry as an event planner.
Meredith works as a social media specialist for a small business in Orange, CT but is an aspiring copywriter. Aside from working on her book at The Voice to pursue her career in advertising, she spends most of her time seeing live bands, visiting art galleries and baking. Meredith is also a musician and has been playing multiple instruments for almost twenty years. Once her book meets her high standards, she will begin her job search at agencies around the country.
Ronise is a recent graduate of Southern Connecticut State University where she majored in Communications with a concentration in Advertising in Promotions. Ronise is a artist who specializes in painting and drawing. Besides being an artist she loves to travel and meet new people. In the future, she hopes to bring her fun, spunky and creative personality to New York City where she aspires to work in the entertainment industry on a promotion and marketing team.
We are excited to have the new interns on board and are looking forward to a great summer at the Ad House!
