During the summer of 2017, I had the incredible chance to live in New York City and work for NBCUniversal. My responsibilities included:
- Develop interactive data visualizations for the NBC OTS digital Platforms.
- Create an interactive for the Russia Investigation that remained on 12 station’s homepages for over a month.
- Work at the multimedia help desk on various development and design requests involving timely stories.
- Make a “how to” gallery for Fourth of July fireworks that received over 360,000 clicks.
Check out some of the projects I worked on below:
Working for NBC OTS gave me the chance to feel the excitement of a big company, but work with a relatively small team. I walked away from the experience with insight on what makes a good team member, and how to collaborate on projects. This was a one-of-a-kind internship that allowed me to grow individually in my skills, but also as a professional. I took on big responsibilities, such as living on my own in a big city, meeting deadlines, working with supervisors and bosses, and not to mention figuring out public transportation!
