“My internships got me out of my comfort zone and showed me how things really are in the working world. They also helped me build on my Emmanuel courses and learn about the different ways I could use my English degree after graduation. ”
—Kelly Anderson ‘17
As an editorial intern at BOSTON COMMON magazine, Kelly learned about the world of media and publishing from the inside. Working for a leading luxury lifestyle publication focused on arts and culture, Kelly had the opportunity to write, edit, conduct interviews, handle social media, assist photographers and much more. This was Kelly’s third internship while at Emmanuel. Previously, she worked as an editorial intern at Spotted Media, a digital celebrity advertising solution provider, and as a copywriting intern at BIGfish Communications, a public relations and social media agency. These hands-on experiences, combined with her English courses and on-campus involvement with the student newspaper, The Hub, and E.C. Radio, gave her a broad perspective on how to use her communications skills after leaving Emmanuel.
