PRSSA and AMA Present the Intern Queen
The Ithaca College chapter of the Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA) has teamed up with the American Marketing Association (AMA) to bring the Intern Queen to Ithaca’s campus on November 8 at 12:05 p.m. in Textor 102. Admission to the event is free, however, seating is limited and tickets will be distributed on a first-come-first-serve basis through tabling in the Campus Center, which will begin October 24. Members of PRSSA and AMA are encouraged to get tickets at their club meetings. The Intern Queen, Lauren Berger, will present “Everything Internships,” sharing her story as well as advice on finding, applying to, and making the most of an internship.
Lauren Berger is the CEO of Intern Queen Inc., “an online internship destination that helps students find and apply for internships while also educating them on how to make the most of their experiences.” Berger dubbed herself the Intern Queen after completing 15 internships during her four years of college at the University of Central Florida. She interned for several well-known organizations such as MTV, BWR Public Relations, and NBC. Berger began the Intern Queen not long after graduation and today she collaborates with over 500 organizations and reaches over 40,000 people every month.
PRSSA and AMA would like to thank SGA for providing funding for the event. Kayla Inanc, president of IC's PRSSA Chapter, said, "Both student organizations have worked hard to bring this idea to life -- and we're delighted to have Lauren Berger share her experiences and advice with IC students. We hope students are able to gain insight into the importance of the internship experience."
