Courtney Fishman Lands Prestigious ASME Internship for Summer 2015

Courtney-Fishman-headshotThe first time Courtney Fishman went to New York City, she was 13 days old. Since then, she’s been itching to go back. This summer, she will.

The junior magazine and public relations double major was selected for the American Society of Magazine Editors’ competitive Magazine Internship program. Each year, hundreds of college students from across the country apply, and only between 20 and 30 are selected. A Drake student has been chosen for the program nearly every year for several consecutive years, and now, Courtney continues the legacy.

This summer, Courtney will work at Advertising Age. “Ad Age was one of my top choices because the publication gives me the opportunity to utilize my previous skills while also building new ones,” she says. “Considering my double major in public relations and magazines, Ad Age seemed like a good fit to hone in on two topics I’m very passionate about.”

At Ad Age, interns will write weekly and create online and video content. While Courtney is most excited to “soak up everything the program can offer me, from networking to career advancements,” she’s also looking forward to city life and determining whether New York will be her post-grad home.

Courtney is currently the editor-in-chief of The Times-Delphic. To keep up with her summer endeavors, follow her on Twitter at @courtneylf, and read the ASME Intern Blog for occasional updates starting this May.
