The Power of Media Production: Caitlin’s Internship

Caitlin is pictured in the bottom row on the right during an event with an organization JPL partnered with this summer.

Caitlin Davis, a senior at Milton Hershey School, has been interested in film and media for as long as she can remember. To build upon the skills she has gained in the Electronic Media and Journalism career pathway at MHS, Caitlin completed a summer internship at JPL—an integrated marketing agency in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.

Learn more about her experience and how it helped solidify her career goals!

Q: Why are you interested in electronic media and journalism?

A: I’ve been interested in film since I was young. I always wanted to know how companies use  green screens, what makes people disappear,  and  how they do what they do. I wanted to know more about editing and production altogether.

Q: What type of skills are you gaining at your internship?

A: At my internship, I learned how to communicate better with people. I also learned about teamwork, finance, and leadership.

I love that I was treated like one of them and not just a high school intern. I was busy doing different things and learning about different components of media. I helped edit a video for a local university and worked with other interns to create an internal video on how to arm and disarm an alarm inside the building.

Q: How will these skills benefit your future?

A: These skills are going to help me in the future because now I truly know  the different aspects of working for a film company. Even though this is just a small portion of what I want to do, I learned so much.

Q: What advice would you give other high school students who want to complete an internship?

A: I would say go for it! It’s a great opportunity to get to know more about your career pathway, and it helps you figure out whether [you like it or not]. Once I started [my internship], I truly fell in love with the media production field.
