Media & Communications Studies major and Providence local Bianca Suchite ’19 took on two internships during the winter term. Suchite commuted from Providence to Boston to intern at Maggie Inc., a private modeling agency, and Zylotech, a data analytics marketing company. At Maggie Inc., Suchite was responsible for scheduling and posting content to the agency’s Instagram account. “The most rewarding and exciting aspect of overseeing the Instagram account was being able to view the audience engagement of the content I posted,” she says.
Between both internships, Suchite was tasked with data entry, email blasts and research compilation. She learned how to work quickly and efficiently under the pressure of deadlines and how to improvise when necessary. When asked what advice she would give younger students, she says “Learning to adapt to a variety of work settings shapes you and widens your perspective of most industries — and it builds your résumé.”
Upon completion of the winter term, Suchite was hired full time in the marketing and sales department at the Venus de Milo, a restaurant and banquet facility located in Swansea, Mass. She credits her range of work and internship experiences in helping her get the job.
