My name is Jackie Markisz and I was very fortunate to have interned at the Catholic Apostolate Center during my spring semester of freshman year. I am a student at The Catholic University of America located in Washington, D.C. , and I am pursuing a degree in Marketing with a minor in Media Studies.
My time interning at the Catholic Apostolate Center has been an enriching experience. I learned new editing techniques and how to use different applications, such as Adobe Premiere and Canva, to create flyers for the Center’s various conferences. I was very fortunate to work with Alex Cranstoun, the Center’s Production Coordinator, every week. He allowed me to have creative freedom whenever I edited videos for the Center’s website or created flyers, and he invited me to give my own feedback on how to enhance the Center’s website and YouTube page. He also made sure every project that I worked on was something that taught me a new skill. This helped to enhance my skill set as a student who wants to pursue a career in Digital Marketing and Editing.
Every staff member that I worked with and met at the Catholic Apostolate Center was friendly and allowed me to have the firsthand experience to learn skills that I not only wanted to learn, but that also expanded my video editing knowledge. During my time interning at the Catholic Apostolate Center, I helped edit various videos for the Center’s website, created flyers for their various conferences, and helped edit the Center’s YouTube page and website. I highly recommend interning at the Catholic Apostolate Center. Not only will you be able to work with a great staff, but you will be able to explore your various interests and further your skills and your knowledge for your specific vocation.
