Land Your Dream Job.
Gemma DiCasimirro ’12
I was hired as a Production Assistant at NBC 10 Philadelphia about a month before graduation, after a year-long internship. I had never really considered a career in Broadcast Journalism until that internship, which led me to not only fall in love with the job, but also to realize it’s what I wanted to do with my life.
As the NBC 10 Philadelphia newsroom Web Intern, I wrote articles daily, updated photo galleries, cut and uploaded videos, and went out with reporters on stories. By the time my internship had come to a close, I had published more than 50 articles, gained experience in investigative journalism, and shadowed several reporters.
I got to meet and talk with some really amazing people, like Wyatt Cenac from The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, Amanda Knox’s attorney, and even legendary journalist Tom Brokaw. But my favorite experience was getting to see a story I pitched air on television.
