Each summer we are lucky enough to be joined by a great group of young talent, and this year was no exception. We had another great group of interns this summer! We truly appreciated their fresh ideas, enthusiasm and outstanding work ethic. It’s a win for us both as they contribute so much to our team, and in return gain some real work experience and exposure to different areas they are interested in learning more about.
Our interns work on things like assisting the editorial staff with proofing pages, writing advertorials, taking photographs for print and social media and assisting on photo shoots. They also assist with our marketing and help support our account management team and the many clients we have. We’ve also had interns help with event planning and TV production, and join us on the set of our three TV shows to learn more about how a television series comes to life and what goes on behind the scenes in pre-production.
Here’s a bit more about three of 2017 interns:
Robyn Rapaport, a student at the University of Arizona, worked with our account management team over the summer. Robyn helped develop social media strategies and content marketing for our clients. Robyn, who spends her summer in Mashpee, is pursuing a degree in film. She is entering her sophomore year at U of A.
Meghan Nanan is going into her senior year at the University of Vermont, where she is studying public communication with a minor in music business and technology. This summer, Meghan helped proof pages, write editorial content for Currents and penned book roundups for both Cape Cod Magazine and Chatham Magazine. The highlight for Meghan this summer was attending a shark talk in July by world-renowned photographer Brian Skerry at the Wequassett Resort & Golf Club in Harwich. At the event, Meghan took photos of people and overall scenic shots to run in Cape Cod Magazine and on our social media pages. Meghan, who summers in Falmouth, is passionate about the ocean and loves to support the Atlantic White Shark Conservancy in Chatham. In addition to her internship at Lighthouse Media Solutions, Meghan worked as a lab technician at Associates of Cape Cod in Falmouth.
Whitney Thalheimer, is a junior studying creative advertising at Michigan State University. Whitney is very interested in photography, so we put her to work on the Shop Talk pages in the Currents section in Cape Cod Magazine and various other assignments that required quality photography. She also penned a history piece for Then & Now and wrote the town advertorial about Chatham for the September issue of Cape Cod Magazine. She also worked at Tavern On The Green in Marstons Mills at the Old Barnstable County Fairgrounds golf course this summer. Meghan grew up in Hopkinton, but summers on the Cape in Marstons Mills.
Taylor Fry is a resident of Chatham and is currently studying English and Environmental issues at Colorado College. As a Junior, she is on the Women’s Club Soccer team and is a contributing photographer and writer to Spoon University on campus. At Lighthouse Media Solutions this summer, she learned a lot about photographing for events, proofing articles, and loved interviewing and writing about a local café in Wellfleet.
Thank you to all of you that joined us this summer and we wish you the best back at school and on your future professional journeys!
