Former Career Services intern Lauren Finkbeiner recently hit the jackpot when receiving an internship at SCG Legal PR Network. This award winning network was created to connect law firms with national and international legal and non-legal media. Lauren's tasks in the organization include handling the social media, such as their Twitter and blog, creating a bi-monthly newsletter, tracking legal requests and helping with data sales entry.
Having the opportunity to also intern with the Office of Career Services was a plus for Lauren. While interning, she was able to clearly recognize all of the support services that the career counselors had to offer, and also witnessed the success that came from working with them. Sure enough, Lauren also received guidance from a career counselor, just as she had seen so many other students do. She received help revising and constantly updating her résumé, as well as formatting and writing her reference list.
Lauren plans to graduate in spring 2011 with a Bachelors Degree in Communication and a double minor in political science and business administration. After graduation, she hopes to get a job in New York City, where it is closer to her home in Long Island. In the meantime, however, she is sure to stay busy interning at SCG Legal PR Network and being Vice President of Eastern's PRSSA.
