The Venice Media District has launched its College Internship Program with the addition of its newest team member — Mount St. Mary’s College (MSMC) senior Zully Garcia.
Garcia began interning with Hype Communications, a sponsoring company of VMD, during Summer 2011 and worked on a comprehensive research project for VMD. She then decided to become VMD’s first college Intern for fall 2011.
This autumn, Garcia continues her comprehensive research project for the Directory section of VMD’s recently re-designed web site (www.venicemediadistrict.org).
She is also assisting with special event production at the recent Abbot Kinney Festival in late September and the organization’s next Mixer at The Brig in Venice on Nov. 9 to be held from 6-9 p.m.
In addition to her research project and special event production for VMD, Garcia is also acquiring knowledge in marketing, public relations, advertising, and non-profit organizations.
Zully is one of those rare college seniors who brings an already-developed skill set to her internships, and a desire to apply what she is learning in the classroom to the workplace, says Colleen O’Mara Diamond, Co-Founder/Chair and Director of Communications for Venice Media District, also Co-Owner of Hype Communications (www.hypeworld.com).
The Venice Media District was founded in 2006, and launched its High School Internship Program in partnership with Venice Arts in 2007.
The hugely successful High School Internship Program has placed highly-trained high school students enrolled in the internationally recognized and award-winning Venice Arts Program (www.venice-arts.org) in a series of creative internships over the past four years.
