Mount Union College Student Interns in the Nation’s Capital
March 26, 2008
Mount Union College student, Melonie Jurcevic, a senior English major from Parma is interning at Double R Productions in Washington D.C.
Jurcevic landed the internship as a Mass Communications student of The Washington Center. With minors in media studies and web design, and a passion for creative writing and film, Jurcevic could not pass on the opportunity to intern at an award-winning full service media communications/television production company.
Through May, Jurcevic’s responsibilities range from producing media publications and writing press releases to client services. Major projects include a segment for the American Society of Mechanical Engineers and a production series entitled, “The Arts Show & Tell” for The Cultural Alliance of Greater Washington (CAGW), where she will shoot, write and edit the entire piece with her intern team.
“As a student fresh out of college it’s not only intimidating but challenging to find employment, especially with limited experience,” said Jurcevic. “Sometimes you literally have to go great distances to pursue an area of interest and you’ll need something more that sets you apart from the competition, so you can land the ideal job.”
While in D.C. Jurcevic is determined to make the most out of her experience at Double R Productions. She plans on pursuing a career in production or public relations.
Double R Productions’ full service communications team turns your vision into reality. From advocacy campaigns to media training, original television programming, public service announcements and video news releases, we consult, shoot and edit. We get it right for our corporate, non-profit and government clients. Double R Productions…Best Brand in the Business!
