Throughout my four years at Fordham I have interned in four very different industries. As I am a marketing major, all my internships have involved marketing. The type of marketing I did, however, was extremely different at each one. I have interned in fashion at Kenneth Cole, in the digital media industry at a website called YourTango, the hospitality industry at a social media agency called The Blaq Group, and finally, in the entertainment industry, for my current internship at Nickelodeon.
From my internship at Nickelodeon, I have learned that the entertainment industry is absolutely the one for me. I would have never known this had I not interned in the other industries, though. I genuinely love what I do at Nick and feel that the work I’m producing actually makes an impact. The tasks I am given never include running errands or fetching coffee. I am assigned projects that full-time employees also work on. I get so excited about the work that I do that I know for a fact this is the type of marketing I’d like to do when I graduate.
My biggest advice that I can give you is to intern in as many industries as you can throughout college. It’s the only way you’ll truly know where your passion lies.
