Internships | Career Preparation


Interning for Grande Media was a very unique and beneficial experience. I was able to learn a variety of digital marketing techniques and skills that were foreign to me. As a communications major I was new to the digital marketing world, but Grande Media was able to help me build a portfolio to present to future employers. As a college student, this internship was manageable, educative, and fun!

Interning with Grande Media taught me a wide range of digital marketing skills that I could not have learned in a classroom. James took into account which areas of marketing I was interested in and gave me projects that were best suited towards those interests, while also making sure I was learning new skills as well. This experience has prepared me for entering the business world and has expanded my knowledge beyond belief.

Finishing college can be overwhelming for some, myself included. However, after completing this internship I felt as though I was ready to take on post-grad opportunities. Overall, James is an excellent mentor and boss. His internship program has exceeded my expectations.

Grande Media was a key part of not only my senior year, but my time at URI as a whole. I graduated feeling prepared and ready to take on the world of Marketing, Public Relations, and Communications.¬†I loved my internship and I wouldn’t change it for anything.

For my final semester at URI I had the opportunity to be an intern for James with Grande Media. I can honestly say that my involvement with this internship was unlike any other experience I have had at URI. James really prepared me for life after college and has made me feel more comfortable with entering the “real world‚ÄĚ.

James at Grande Media challenged me and made me a better student (and now graduate). He really has a lot to give to his students so that they can move on to big things. This internship was not just an internship. It was an enjoyable, challenging experience that I will forever be grateful for. It was an open door of opportunity that I am so happy to have walked through.
