In Their Own Words: Bianca Giaever ’12.5

Categories: Midd Blogosphere

“In Their Own Words” is an ongoing series featuring the experiences of Middlebury students at their summer internships. This summer Bianca Giaever ’12.5 interned with Atlantic Public Media in Woods Hole, MA.       

What did you do?

I worked on Cape Cod producing radio for NPR producer Jay Allison. I can’t imagine a better internship for someone interested in radio journalism. It was a small company, so I was able to do very important work. I spent the majority of the time in the field interviewing and editing my stories, so I now have built a very strong portfolio of my work.

What did you learn?

While I was there I assisted in producing the NPR show The Moth Radio Hour, made radio stories for the Cape Cod NPR Station WCAI, and also worked on their website Transom.org. Some of my work was featured on Transom, and you can find it at this link: http://transom.org/?p=29835. It’s a good summary of the work I did this summer.

What are your plans for the future?

I’m continuing to work for APM this fall from Middlebury and I’m now being paid to do so. I’m sharing my experience with others through the radio journalism and storytelling work I do on campus, organizing The Moth and teaching radio workshops. This experience has confirmed that I want to work in radio journalism after I graduate. APM has provided me with a number of connections to continue working in radio after I graduate, and I have already been in contact with The Moth and a few NPR stations.

Think this experience sounded pretty cool? Check out opportunities like this and more on MOJO.

The Christian Science Monitor.

Green Chemistry Program.

Democracy for America.

Ah, you ask, what could these three things possibly have  in common?

They are all offering winter term internships for Middlebury students! (The Christian Science Monitor has also probably written about both the Green Chemistry Program and Democracy for America, but that’s beside the point).

So riddle me this: what do the New England Review, Roots for Health and Senator Patrick Leahy have in common?
