A Frosh Perspective: Landing a First Internship

Angelina Truchan is a freshman at Wayne State University who plans to major in public relations. She hopes to share a bit of her year and her perspective with our Under PRessure readers. This month, she sums up her successful first semester and shares what's to come!


Hello all!

It has been quite the busy month for this little freshman. I suppose taking my own advice worked for once because I didn’t hold myself back from opportunity due to fear and guess what? I now have obtained my very first internship! After months of searching, I think this will be the perfect fit for me with SOUL Magazine.

Although I still have very much to learn, one thing I know is that it is direly important to experience as many internships as possible to build up my portfolio and resume. My advice to all my fellow PR freshman is to try to find an internship you know you will enjoy with people you mesh well with. Otherwise, it will only feel like an added strain to our already busy schedules (and that’s no good). If you begin to get discouraged in your quest, don’t. I began to and right when I wasn’t looking, this internship found me. You never know what will cross your path. Anyways, I start this week so fingers crossed!

Until next time,

Angelina Marie

P.S. - Any students looking for an internship in the Metro Detroit area should take a look at SOUL Magazine. They have a few spots left!
