From one intern about another: I had the chance to work with Katie Park this summer as a fellow intern. Our work was at opposite ends of the office, and so unfortunately it rarely intersected, but I can say with confidence that she will fly high wherever she goes. Here are some of her thoughts about her time here, as well as examples of her work.
-Broderick Hooker, intern.
This past summer I had the opportunity to gain hands-on media experience through my internship at Multimedia Marketing Group. I am currently a junior at Wheaton College (IL) majoring in Business-Economics and Media Communication with a certificate in Journalism. Before starting my internship, I was interested in learning more about video production but had limited training and experience outside of the classroom. Through the guidance and mentoring I received at MMG, I gained not only experience but also confidence in my ability to tell stories through visual media.
One aspect of the internship that stood out to me was the level of involvement and responsibility that I was given. Over the course of my time at MMG, some of the highlights included editing two client videos and producing an in-house video project for our internal marketing. These assignments were a way for me to integrate the techniques, skills, and editing software that I had been learning into my work.
Furthermore, I was surprised to find that the subjects of these videos were teaching me even more than the project itself. Being new to the Rockford area, I have learned so much more about our community and the people that are part of it, and this is something I didn’t expect to take away from my internship
My time at MMG was full of rich discussion, engaging projects, and wonderful team members. I am grateful for both the experience and for the people that I got to work with and learn from this summer. Thank you!
