Junior Vanessa Dunne's Internship with Professional Recording ArtistLake Erie College junior Vanessa Dunne spent the summer of 2012 in Los Angeles, Calif. completing an internship working with Shmedia Media LLC and professional recording artist Katelyn Benton.
Dunne was approached by Vice President for Student Affairs and Athletics Robin Johnson informing her that she was one of the top two candidates selected to participate in the L.A. Experience Internship program. The internship program was made possible by a generous donation from alumna Carol (Lewis) Morris '67 and her husband, Robert Morris several years ago.
"After interviewing with several companies, I finally found and met Max Goldberg (co-founder of Shmedia) and instantly knew this was the perfect fit," said Dunne. The other co-founder was Benton.
With Shmedia, Dunne learned about social media marketing, promotions and networking. Dunne assisted Benton with photoshoots, studio time, promotions and venue research.
Dunne will graduate with a major in business administration with a minor in Italian and Spanish.
