This summer I had the opportunity to work with the Philadelphia Union, a Major League Soccer team. This was an incredible experience for me since I am pursuing a career in the professional sports industry. The internship also helped enhance my communication skills that I have gained at Bloomsburg University. During the internship, I assisted with donation requests, soccer clinics, grassroots marketing, and other promotional events. I also networked with professionals and athletes from all over the country and from around the world. Changing my major to Communication Studies during my sophomore year was one of the best decisions that I have ever made. My internship experience allowed me to apply my skills and knowledge from the classroom into a real world environment.

- This past summer, I was honored to be selected as the sole intern to work with the American Wedding Group (AWG), the nation’s premier wedding service company. AWG is a major provider of wedding photography, videography, and DJ services. This opportunity was a great experience for me because I dream of having a career in the event planning industry. Throughout this internship, I was able to see the ins and outs of such a large company. I worked closely with the Director of Marketing and the Director of Sales. Over the course of this internship, I assisted in developing different marketing campaigns, the launch of a new brand, and attended sales showcases. This internship has provided me with experience in the event planning industry that I would have never received otherwise. The time that I spent with AWG has allowed me to discover my knack for event planning. I am very excited to see what the future has to offer upon graduation in the spring.
