It’s September, which means that school is back in session, and interns are once again roaming the office at Quinlan.

This semester we’ve welcomed two interns, Becca and Alexis, into our graphic design and content marketing departments. These girls have already jumped headfirst into their work and have been assisting in designing mockups, crafting social media posts and writing content for our team.

Rebecca is finishing up her last semester at Villa Maria College, where she is completing her bachelor’s degree in graphic design. Before scoring this internship, Becca interned at Sarahphoto and Fourthidea. Currently, Becca is working on assisting our designers with their projects and completing mockups for clients.

Why Becca is studying graphic design:
I enjoy the creative freedom that you receive in the field, as well as the large amount of job openings there are around Buffalo.

What she hopes to get out of her internship:
I really felt like I could expand my knowledge and learn a lot from this company. (Quinlan is) well known and they have great designers on board to learn from.

What she wants to do after graduation:
I would like to find a job local (around the Buffalo area) in graphic design. Right now, I am hoping for an agency job.

How she spends her time outside of school:
Playing sports, shooting photography, spending time in the country or trying to make new food.

Ireland.

If she could have any profession in the world it would be:

Previously, she interned at The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette and the Roswell Park Alliance Foundation. This fall, Alexis will be working on managing social media accounts, drafting blog posts and writing SEO content.

Why Alexis is studying communications:
I love learning how people interact with the world around them and what motivates them to act a certain way. Not to mention, you use communication in every field, so I knew it would be helpful no matter what field I go into.

What she hopes to get out of her internship:
I really hope to gain valuable insight about agency life and work on developing dynamic content for Quinlan and its  clients.

What she wants to do after graduation:
I want to go to graduate school to study integrated marketing and management for nonprofit organizations.

How she spends her time outside of school:
I probably spend half of my time doing club work and extracurriculars, and the other half inside of Tex-Mex restaurants.

The one place she’s always wanted to travel:
I’ve got too many places on my bucket list to pick just one!

If she could have any profession in the world it would be:
I would be the next Ellen Degeneres.

I can sing the alphabet backwards.
