As my yearlong (and then some) internship at Trinity University Press ends, I can’t believe how far things have come since I applied for the position last spring. Spending my senior year gaining real-world experience on the same campus that shaped me for the three years prior was like a dream come true. Although I started the internship wanting to pursue a career in publishing, my experiences as the press's marketing assistant and in my final year of classes caused my interests to shift and mature--and led me straight to a career path I think I was meant for all along. Thanks to the skills and connections I’ve gained, I've accepted an exciting position at Toolbox Studios, a branding and content marketing firm in downtown San Antonio.
My time at the press has been crucial to my success, and I’ll miss everyone I've come to know and love here. From writing and editing, to various research projects, to reading titles like Home Ground and What I Can’t Bear Losing while “working,” I can say this is the most valuable internship experience I've had. I’ll be back for my copy of The Osage Orange Tree, the stunning conceptualization of a never-before-published story by William Stafford. Thanks for everything, TU Press!
