NECC students intern at Eagle-Tribune, other local companies

Get valuable experience in communications


Nicholas Mazzone, 20, of Methuen had a little bit of a different experience at KISS 108, where he worked in sound and production.

“Just being given the opportunity to work there with all those talented people was great,” he said.

Mike Alongi of Haverhill, a communication major, interned with Entercom Boston at WEEI. He said he also had a positive experience.

“I’ve always wanted to work for WEEI, so when I got the chance to be in the office I was ecstatic,’’ he said. “I learned a lot about working for a radio station and the collaboration it takes from everyone. I’m very glad I can now put this on my resume.”

Students interested in the internship program were initially invited to attend an information session to help them make informed decisions about classes and work schedules. Students then had a mandatory meeting with their faculty coordinator and provided a resume and faculty approval form.

Nearly a dozen students from business and journalism/communication enrolled in the first internship group, working an average 14 hours per week over the course of a 12-week semester. The students who participate earn three college credits.

Employers who participate in the internship program assist in the hiring process, approve learning objectives, attend site visits, and evaluate both the student and program to ensure quality.

Bragger said NECC hopes to increase enrollment each semester and is now working with a computer information systems academic area to expand offerings.

Businesses interested in becoming involved in the NECC internship program should contact Bragger at 978-556-3946 or abragger@necc.mass.edu.
