(Pledge Class 2007/Chapter President)
Intern at Sports Illustrated Kids
"I love working at SI Kids. I commute from my apartment at Columbia University to Rockefeller Center each morning and feel like a true New Yorker. Working with SI Kids has been great because it is a fun environment and part of Time Inc. which has 115 magazines (perfect for post-graduation job hunt connections). So far I do a lot of archiving, mail, and fact-checking work but I have been able to do some great interviews and write blog posts. I have interviewed John Wall, the NBA's first round draft pick, World Cup organizers, and one of the best goalies in the NHL, Martin Brodeur! I am excited to see my work in print next month. For a sports nerd, this is a dream come true!"

Intern at space150
"I am working at space150 (http://space150.com/) in the New York (Brooklyn) office. This advertising agency focuses on digital work and keeps me very busy. A few of our big clients are American Express and Forever 21. I am helping on the account side for the American Express mobile team. (Basically helping out where i can with the different smart-phone apps and mobile websites my company creates for American Express) SO COOL! I am learning a lot and loving my work. I am also doing the Mizzou Journalism NYC Program too where I am taking classes and receiving credit. I am really enjoying life in the concrete jungle and would recommend doing a summer internship here to anyone. "

Intern with designer Wes Gordon
"I work 5 days a week doing all kinds of things. I pretty much run around the city all day! I organize and get clothes ready for photo shoots and magazines. I am helping Wes launch his fall line that will be in major department stores all around the world. I also am helping him create his spring line by picking out colors and patterns. I design trend boards and fabric boards."

Intern at AOL
"I'm interning on the global brand marketing team at AOL. We are responsible for coordinating marketing efforts for the company as a whole, both in the US and globally. Since AOL is currently in the process of rebranding their company as more than the dial-up Internet of the past, I'm working with the team that is coordinating this rebranding effort. I work on planning events and initiatives to promote AOL and all of their content platforms. Other than work, New York has been amazing and is defintely a city that everyone should experience at least once in their lives."

Intern with KPMG LLP
"I am working in the Audit Metro practice of the firm, which means I am auditing non-financial service clients such as construction, manufacturing, health care, retail, food and consumer products, etc. At my internship, I am treated as a first year associate staff so I am getting to participate in actual audits and getting to performing testwork for the audits. I am living in SoHo, which has lots of shopping, restuarants, and bars. I am enjoying every minute in the city so far and hopefully will receive a full-time offer at the end of my internship and return to NYC and KPMG after graduation."
