Writer and Digital Content Intern at Office of Communication(Ohio Weslyan University)
Throughout my time working as a writer and digital content intern for the Office of University Communications, I obtained a variety of new skills through the process of writing and creating posts for the OWU website and battlingbishops.com. While completing my internship, I worked closely with Cole Hatcher, director of media and community relations, and Mark Beckenbach, media relations/sports information director for University Communications. In my work with Hatcher, I created an array of Make the Connection posts, wrote some of my own press releases and feature stories, and proofread and edited a variety of other posts. With Beckenbach, I constructed around 20 Meet the Bishops posts. My work on battlingbishops.com allowed me to completely reconstruct the Meet the Bishops section of the webpage and present the athletes with photos and quotes that displayed who they are both on and off the field. All of my work at the Office of University Communications provided me with experience and skills that I will be able to take into the workforce.
