            Brian, a Communications major, is currently a social media intern at the Center for Internships and Career Development at Eastern. Brian's responsibilities include managing the center's Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, and Intagram social media outlets. He also promoted the media outlets by going to different locations on campus to get students to connect and become more aware of the benefits from the Center for Internships and Career Development. Through his internship Brian has learned effective ways to communicate and encourage students to connect with the center's outlets. He has learned what type of career information is engaging and useful for students.

            Brian would like to have a career in marketing and advertising one day and his experience promoting and learning social media is a very important communication tool in the marketing world today. Brian's advice to students who are required or who would like to complete an internship is to always have an updated resume with you and available to access at any time. He also suggest using resources such as the Center for Internships and Career Development to help you build a great resume, learn how to find an internship that's right for you, and attend the internship and career fairs they host on campus.
