At the Assumption College Public Affairs office


Name: Michael Smith
Hometown: Worcester, MA
Major: Management
Internship Sponsor: Assumption College Public Affairs Office


Primary Responsibilities:

At the Office of Public Affairs, I am responsible for researching and writing articles, profiles and press releases for the Assumption website and magazine. This job also requires me to interview fellow students, faculty and alumni, as well as coordinate various projects and events that take place around campus and in the Worcester community.

Blog Entry:

This internship at the Office of Public Affairs has been a great way to gain hands-on experience and actually apply class concepts outside of the classroom. As a management major and mathematics minor, I am now getting a chance to also develop my English, writing and communication abilities. Communication skills learned during my marketing and management classes have allowed me to conduct meaningful interviews with fellow students and faculty, and to keep the audience interested and attentive when speaking. These skills also have allowed me to clearly define the target audience, and to write articles/profiles for publication with clarity and conciseness, making every single word valuable.

It is not about just getting through my day of work; my internship is valuable because it allows me to diversify myself and become flexible. I look forward to my internship because there are so many beneficial skills that I take away from the experience.
