Interning in the Assumption College Admissions Office
Name: Kristen Armata
Hometown/State: Northborough, MA
Major: Organizational Communication
Internship Site: Admissions Office, Assumption College
My primary responsibilities at my internship are to:
- Conduct interviews with prospective students
- Create marketing messages to select high school students who are interested in Assumption
- Conduct market research on Assumption’s competitors
My internship at the Admissions House has been one of the best internships I have experienced because every day I am challenged with new projects, and these new projects are helping me to develop the skill of “wearing several hats at once” or the skill of multi-tasking.
I have interviewed many potential incoming freshmen. The students I have interviewed are all great candidates to become future Greyhounds! Being in the role of the interviewer has helped me gain insight and experience in the interpersonal communication skills which I studied in my Communication Theory course.
I am also involved in a personalized marketing effort and create cards to send out to students who have not yet applied to Assumption. In my message I make it a point that these students realize the importance of keeping Assumption as an opportunity for them.
It has been a pleasure interning in the Admissions House and it has opened my eyes to a potential career in college admissions.
