Patrick Donlin: Worcester Business Journal
Interning for the Worcester Business Journal

Interning for the Worcester Business Journal


Name: Patrick Donlin
Hometown: South Glastonbury, CT
Major: Organizational Communication
Internship Sponsor: The Worcester Business Journal (WBJ)


Primary Responsibilities:
As an intern in the Editorial Department at the WBJ, my responsibilities include: researching and writing brief articles covering a variety of business-related topics, uploading the latest editions of the WBJ on the website, and representing WBJ at local business events.


Blog Entry:
My internship at the WBJ has given me a dose of reality. As senior year winds down, my experience at the WBJ office grows invaluable. The time spent and knowledge gained during my internship has made me feel very comfortable entering an office setting after graduation.


I have had the opportunity to write my own column, The 101 Section.  My column offers important business tips specifically tailored to business leaders throughout our Central Massachusetts coverage area. For example, I have written about Business Plans, Leadership, Reference Checks, and MBA Programs. Seeing my name in print in a professional business journal every two weeks has been exciting!


I have also made important contributions to the production process. I have been handed assignments to take photographs in the field for articles and record and edit multi-media for the WBJ’s social networking sites.


My work at the WBJ has been a tremendous step forward in a potential career path. As I currently fill out applications for magazine jobs in New York City, I am confident that my position at the WBJ has set me up for success.
