Name: Katie DiCioccio
Hometown: Wappingers Falls, New York
Major: Organizational Communication
Internship Sponsor: Assumption College Public Affairs Office
My internship semester has given me the opportunity to develop a strong career portfolio of writing samples and projects with faculty profile pieces, media alerts, memos, advertising mailings and press releases. This internship also requires me to interview fellow students, faculty and alumni, as well as attend strategic meetings to coordinate upcoming campus events and publications.
Being able to intern in the Public Affairs Office at Assumption College has given me a valuable opportunity to utilize and expand my professional writing and verbal communication skills.
My main role in the office is to prepare for the college’s upcoming production of OLIVER! With the performances quickly approaching, I have been working on promotional tools as well as the playbill to make this show as large of a success as possible.
Because I am extremely busy as an intern, I have experienced a deep need to multi-task on my many different projects for the Public Affairs Office. As hectic as this has become, it always leads to a fulfilling feeling at the end of each workday from knowing I have added value to the mission of the college.
