The summer is off to an exciting start as CAMD students and recent graduates secure summer internships, positions, and fellowships at national publications across the country.
Tyler Blint-Welsh, who just graduated from the School of Journalism, is spending 10 weeks of his summer reporting at the Sports Desk as one of the 28 interns hired by The Washington Post. Joining him at the Post is Graphic and Information Design alumna, Vanessa Gregorchik, who will be interning at their Design Desk starting in June.
Recent graduate Eva Maldonado, Journalism major, is spending her summer in New York City, where she has landed a role working for The Wall Street Journal. There, she’ll join their video team to assist in the production of news analysis and original documentary pieces. Eva is bringing her experience as a full-time Video Co-op at The Boston Globe to her new position, where she worked last spring.
The Pulitzer Prize-Winning Gazette in Colorado Springs has hired Danae Bucci, a rising senior studying Journalism with minors in Political Communication and Photojournalism. She will complete her internship during the summer months, as part of the Dow Jones News Fund (DJNF) program. Danae and Zipporah Osei, also a student in the School of Journalism, were both accepted into the DJNF internship program out of almost 800 applications. Zipporah will be serving as a Data Intern at Chalkbeat.
Journalism student and San Francisco Bay Area native Erica Yee is returning home for her summer internship at the San Francisco Chronicle, the second largest newspaper on the West Coast! On top of Journalism, Erica also studies Information Sciences and will be entering her senior year at Northeastern. She will join this internship with experience as Boston.Com Editorial Co-op and an Assignment Desk/Strategic Intern for CNBC, among other positions.
Also heading west to the San Francisco Chronicle is Alejandro Serrano, a recent graduate from the School of Journalism. He was awarded the very prestigious and coveted Hearst Journalism Fellowship. After his 10-week summer internship at the Chicago Tribune, he will also be head to the San Francisco Chronicle for a year to start this first assignment for the Hearst; he will then be assigned to a second city after that for another year. This is two years running for Northeastern alumni landing this fellowship. Dylan McGuinness, who graduated last year, is currently finishing his first year in the program at the San Antonio Express-News.
