Los Twitteros – The Thrill of Crime and Journalism

Isn’t it interesting? Just when I found a way to keep myself involved (and I mean like really really into it involved) with my internship – it ends 😉

Friday was my last day at the “Mainzer Rhein-Zeitung“. I’ll continue to write of course, but no more non-payed work from now.

So how did I manage to get so much fun out of this internship? Continue reading

Social Media in Action

I started a marketing and editing internship at Filmateria Studios in SoDo (South of Downtown), Seattle yesterday. I will be working on a project called Team Marco Polo and its online promotion.

Marco Polo is a travel show for kids and the distribution will mostly happen online, so I will develop a social media strategy to bring the show out into the online world.

On the way, I will be posting notes, updates and observations of this venture.
Any hints, tips, support or feedback are of course largely appreciated!

Cutting Through Seattle’s Summer

Editing Internship and the summer in Seattle?!

After a long application process, last Thursday finally brought a turn in my quest for an internship this summer.

Filmateria Studios had invited me for a second interview on Wednesday and it went really well. They liked my technical skills, my international profile and my knowledge of social networking sites.

Yaayy! Joy and happiness! And back to work: there's lots to do now!

Hermina gave me the honor of capturing the moment when I got the Email offering me an intern position. We were working in the law library of UW.

The next step will be the application for a visa extension. If the extension is approved, I will stay in Seattle until October as an editing intern on a project called Team Marco Polo – a travel show for kids! Cross your fingers for my summer in Seattle!!
