  1. Holly – Thanks for your insightful reflections on how this experience helped you develop your thinking about your future professional life. Your advice on finding internships is a message we’d like many students to hear! And it’s clear that your organizational skills reach many facets of your life. Great Lakes Publishing has been a wonderful partner for APEX Fellows and your experience shows that not only are they flexible, but the work they provide really helps in professional development and discernment.

    1. I was surprised to learn that it was okay for me to do an internship and realize that the career might not be my life goal. I still keep in touch with Ohio Magazine, and sometimes I help them with fact-checking; it really is an internship I’d recommend to aspiring journalists. It was also great for creating a network outside of Wooster.

  2. Holly,
    It sounds like this internship was helpful in allowing you to focus on the types of writing you like to do, and allowing you to see alternatives to a career as a journalist or editor.
    Best of luck in determining your next steps for life after Wooster.

    1. Thank you! I’m glad that I had the opportunity to participate in this internship. Now to prepare for Grad School…

  3. Holly-Congratulations again on a very successful internship and a thoughtful reflection on it, which brought back nice memories of our correspondence this summer. Your presentation was really well-done! I wish you the best of luck on IS and on your next career steps, whether that involves grad school in French or something else. Hope to see you on campus in the spring.
