Delaney Vetter“During my internship, I wrote media and influencer pitches, assisted with food styling for client shoots, created editorial calendars for social channels, and helped with a lot of research. I left this internship with so much industry knowledge and was grateful that they gave me the opportunity to do real work. Just being able to work full-time in an office setting was really important to me. Sitting in on staff meetings, smaller team meetings, and client calls gave me a really good idea of what the day to day would look like at a PR agency.

The nice thing about internships is that they give you an opportunity to expand your knowledge on an area you’re interested in. Food is a passion of mine so it was so fun to be able to learn more about the food industry from a different perspective than just a consumer. It also reiterated how much I love learning about media. A lot of the things I’ve learned at my internship have been applicable to my courses back at UP.”
