Business Communication junior Lauren Aversa has begun her reporting internship at SUTV under the direction of Aaron Harris, the director of digital broadcast media, through the internship program headed by Sonya Lawyer, assistant professor and internship director in the School of Design.

Harris writes, "Lauren just did her first story  .... and it got 1100 views on Facebook, 865 on Instagram and 589 on Twitter so far."  Lauren will do one report a week, and you can see her first piece here. She joins other Business Communication majors Christine Favata and Krystal Alexis as SUTV reporters. Good luck to all this semester! (Photo from YouTube)

Senior Molly Myers (left) offered some insights through LinkedIn about what she has learned through her internship at Platinum Reputations. She writes:

1. Business meetings are stressful. They are also very interesting and gave me a chance to learn so much more about running a business.

2. A company that responds to its clients' feedback is more likely to get repeat business than those that don't.

3. Creating social media content for businesses is harder than it seems. I hit many creative roadblocks along the way, but it's definitely a fun career.

4. When given the opportunity to network... Take it!

5. Always always always ask questions! If you don't understand something or if you don't know how to do something, someone is there to help. Learn from others and seek help with your work when needed.

Platinum Reputations is a Cockeysville-based firm that helps businesses and individuals improve their online reputations, through the use of a full team of legal, search experts and computer science engineers who create a strategic plan of action for each client. Their specialties include online damage control, niche business/industry brand solutions, and mitigation, according to the company's website.

Senior Grace Clark is enjoying her internship at WJZ-TV this summer, as a general newsroom intern who has been learning a variety of jobs.

Most recently she has been working on stories for the CBS Baltimore website,  authoring or contributing to eight pieces so far. Grace notes that the station works on Wordpress, so having similar experience with The Villager has been very helpful.

Grace has also worked on the station's assignment editing desk, sifting through potential stories and deciding what is newsworthy, as well as assisting the editors setting up photographers and reporters for the day.

In the next couple of weeks, Grace will begin working with reporters by going out with them in the field and conducting interviews, a task that interests her greatly.

Internships in the School of Design are supervised by assistant professor Sonya Lawyer.

Congratulations, Grace!
