Ever since Chazeray came to Eastern Connecticut State University in 2013, he has known that he would like to work to obtain a career in the entertainment industry. With his graduation coming up in May 2017, he knew he needed to find an internship that would benefit him in the long run.

When Chazeray found the internship with WILI i98.3 Radio, he knew that working in the radio industry would only further him with his future career goals. Going into this internship, he knew he wanted to learn from the experience he was about to have. Chazeray hoped to learn how to improve his production skills, how to organize a radio show, and how to go through the creative process of making advertisements for the radio.

Soon after beginning his internship, he learned that he had many important roles to keep up with. From recording and editing the audio promotions that inform listeners about events, to searching for local businesses that want to get their name out there on airwaves, then to simply answering phones; Chazeray does it all!

When asked what advice he had for other college students trying to find an internship, Chazeray said,” Advice I would give to anyone trying to find an internship would be to stay focused, diligent, and open minded. You get the opportunity to test drive a career. You’ve probably have been spending the last couple years sitting in chairs listening to people talk about being in the work force and now is your chance to actually go out and experience things first hand so just be optimistic, because you never know if an internship can turn into a career you fall in love with.”
