Interning for the Worcester Regional Chamber of Commerce
Name: Danielle DeLaura
Hometown: Gales Ferry, Connecticut
Major: Organizational Communication
Internship Sponsor: Worcester Regional Chamber of Commerce
As a marketing and communications intern, I am primarily responsible for: creating press releases about past and upcoming events, writing, editing and updating information and graphics on the Chamber website; writing and editing news articles and maintaining social networking sites.
The most valuable part of interning at the Chamber of Commerce is being able to apply concepts and skills that I have learned in my communication and marketing classes to actual work responsibilities in a professional environment. Interning at the Chamber allows me to recognize that all my hard academic work has paid off - and it’s extremely gratifying!
My internship provides opportunities for me to attend all of the many Chamber events. The most significant event I worked on and attended was the New England Business Expo where hundreds of companies came together to showcase their products and services. Attending this event gave me incredible networking opportunities and business experience that I had never been exposed to before.
While working at the Chamber I have developed a large portfolio of my writing and technical accomplishments. I also am able to better identify the type of work environment I wish to be a part of in the future.
This internship is a vital piece of my educational experience at Assumption College – my internship has given me the opportunity to grow and transform into an Organizational Communication professional.
