    Get by with a little help… 

    I think some of the most rewarding encounters at my internship have been with co-workers that have offered their own advice as to how I can perform better, or how I can even be successful in my current and future careers. I have had the pleasure of working in a smaller department which has its great advantages of taking on my own tasks, but also asking for help when I need it, and seeking the guidance and advice from more senior members of my team.

    I am lucky to share my experience with a current professor of mine and he urged me to get to know a few members of the video team personally. I now certainly understand why he suggested this. He worked closely with the two members that I now feel very comfortable asking for help or even asking for their own opinions on work and career tips.

    The big leagues: By-line and all… 

    Perhaps one of the most rewarding aspects of my internship thus far, and exciting as well has been editing a package that was featured in both the print and online versions of USA TODAY. I was given the assignment by one of the Video Editing team members I work closely with who has been giving me some helpful tips along the way. She was in need of making the deadline for the next day and we had discussed the original piece during a table discussion at a news meeting earlier in the week. The story would be a centerpiece in the print paper as well has a cover section on the front page. It was my job to take what Shannon had transcribed during the early logging and edit the entire piece from raw footage. I was warned that the piece was shot from a videographer that was new to filming and interviewing since she specialized in writing for paper, not shooting. I quickly learned that this edit would be a challenge but as my first official by-line in the paper and online, I would need to step up and create a solid piece of work for both sections.

    Making Every Job Count… 

    First off I assume it is best to introduce myself to distinguish myself amongst the other fascinating and incredibly talented bloggers/interns featured here. My name is Emily Roseman and I am a Senior in the School of Communication at American University. My four years at AU have challenged me academically, but also professionally and that is something I always credit to the program I am enrolled in, but also my sense of determination to never give up. Since my first day as a Freshman, I have interned  or worked at  some of the most incredible offices around the world. Freshman year I was an intern at BBC World News in DC , Sophomore year brought the great honor of being selected as a White House Intern, my summer leading into Junior year I worked in the editing department at MSNBC in New York City, my spring semester of Junior  year I traveled abroad to London where I was able to intern as a production assistant at Purple Flame Media a documentary film company, and now my last year at AU, I have had the great honor of being selected as one of the students for the Dean’s Internships in SOC and intern at USA TODAY’s video editing department. SO enough about where I used to work…and onto what I can impart onto my fellow classmates as a seasoned veteran of the intern world.

      Emily, what’s it like working with the daily pressure of deadlines?

      • Emily Roseman 1:28 am on November 2, 2011 Permalink

        I tend to live by deadlines actually! I enjoy the thrill of a newsroom and a constant push for my work, guess that’s also good for being a college student!

    Spice up the week with a tour of DCTC! 

    This week involved coordinating another RFI (Request for Information).  This specific RFI is the first of 5 documents from the same organization that is attempting to simply the RFI/RFP process for schools and providers.  The first RFI focuses on growth opportunities for teachers and leaders.  I have also been reading and summarizing some legislative bills for my supervisor, since part of her position focuses on education policy.
