Where are you interning this summer?
I am the Assistant Producer Intern with the Star Players of Massachusetts, Inc.
What have you been working on at your internship? Has it sparked an interest in a career/area of study you hadn’t already thought about?
Throughout my internship, I have been working on Marketing Strategy for the upcoming shows, writing press releases for newspapers and online media all across New England, budget skills needed for what it takes to run and finance a non-profit organization theater company, marketing distribution along Eastern Massachusetts, Advertisement sales for the company, and working one on one with the set design, casting, and promotions for the upcoming productions.
Do you believe your internship experience has helped to prepare you for your future? How so?
My internship has helped me tremendously for my future endeavors, as I hope to be working in the theater community as a production/theater manager. With the hands on skills I am learning with professionals I aspire to work with in the future, my internship has been an experience of a lifetime.
Any advice for other Lubin students looking for internships?
Embrace the options that are out there and utilize the tools you will essentially obtain from these internships. If you look at these internships as not just a job, but also a step towards your future career, I have no doubt that you will succeed. The passion and love you have for your career should carry you all throughout life.
