A Successful Project to Wrap Up My Marketing Internship in Dublin

Jan 3, 2019 9:41:00 AM / by Casey Rhode

In this week's post, Casey tells us about how she ended her marketing internship with Griffith College's Alumni and Career Office in Dublin. She played a big part in planning and executing the very first Alumni Breakfast event for Griffith College. It was a success and one to be remembered! See how Casey diligently contributed to this project while coordinating with various professionals.

Thanks to CAPA, I was able to do an internship while studying in Dublin. My internship was with the Alumni and Careers Office at Griffith College, where I studied. I worked directly with Suzanna Doyle, who takes on the alumni office all on her own, with occasional help from the marketing team whom we shared an office with. The biggest project I had to work on this semester was the first ever Alumni Breakfast event.

This breakfast was a great way to network and reconnect with fellow Griffith alum, while also hearing from some speakers and giving out spot prizes. This event took a lot of time to plan, and I don’t think Suzanna and I could have done it without each other. What was great about my internship was that I didn’t feel like an intern; I felt like I had an important voice that was being listened to and valued. I was able to bounce ideas off of Suzanna and vice versa.

An Internship with the Screen Directors Guild of Dublin

Dec 28, 2018 10:37:56 AM / by Jessica Kisluk

This was an internship that almost did not happened, but Jessica's glad she changed her mind. In this week's post, she talks about interning at the Screen Directors Guild of Dublin and what she did to achieve her professional goals there. She also gives us some insight about the Global Internship Workshop she took alongside her internship and how that prepared her for the Irish working culture and future career endeavors.

Over the course of this past semester, I held an internship with the Screen Directors Guild of Ireland. This internship encompassed a lot of tasks, and I have gained numerous valuable skills that will hopefully help me to secure a job in the future. When I first applied for the CAPA program, I debated not doing an internship, but now I am so grateful that I did. My internship title was project manager, and I had various responsibilities. Some of the main things I organized were speed networking and screening events, podcasts, and many other office responsibilities. We sent an Irish director to LA and I was in charge of the itinerary and meetings. I also helped to produce a podcast with screen directors in collaboration with RTÉ, Ireland’s national broadcaster.
