CLEVELAND, Ohio – June, 13, 2022 – North Coast Media welcomed two university students into their internship program this year. Jessica Khalil, editorial/digital intern and Allison McCann, content marketing intern, participated in the program, and learned how to work within their respective teams while writing articles and editorials, conducting interviews, editing, creating social media posts, ad copy and a variety of other work.
“What I really love about working at North Coast Media is that no two days are ever the same,” McCann says. “I’m always taking on a variety of tasks and learning each one as I come to them. I wish I had found this opportunity sooner.”
Debbie Pipik, Director of Human Resources at North Coast Media, describes the internship program as beneficial for both the interns and the company.
“We have the opportunity to get new perspectives on various processes, procedures and programs from interns,” Pipik says. She adds that the program gives interns the opportunity to learn about their fields of study and make sure it is what they want out of a career.
Khalil validated Pipik’s point: “I feel confident that I chose the right major and am going down the right career path,” Khalil says. “It gave me the chance to grow and have a real world experience that I would not have gotten elsewhere.”
Both students express that the internship program was an affirming experience and that the real-world application is invaluable.
North Coast Media has had an intern program since it’s beginning in 2012. The program provides students pursuing a career in B2B media the opportunity to gain work experience in a professional setting.
