Developing skills through a communications internship

by Stephanie Brown

Over the past three months, I have been working at the national Parents as Teachers office as an intern the Marketing Communications Department.

As an aspiring writer and a recent communications graduate of Maryville University, I was drawn to the intern opportunity at Parents as Teachers to gain experience. I was seeking a position where I could experience a fast-paced, hands-on environment in communications and I got that and more.

I have been working closely with professionals in marketing communications, completing real-world projects from start to finish.

Throughout the summer I’ve written stories for the web site and articles for print and electronic newsletters. I’ve also distributed e-blasts, media alerts and press releases to create awareness for the 2011 Parents as Teachers Conference. In addition, I’ve taken short videos to post on YouTube to promote Parents as Teachers training.

With my experience, I feel that I am ready to take on my next challenge!

Thank you Parents as Teachers team!
