Rebecca Miller – Scranton Fringe

This summer, I am very excited to gain experience and knowledge in the marketing and social media fields as I begin my internship with the Scranton Fringe organization. Scranton Fringe has been creating innovative work since 2015 and is known as an award-winning arts organization. Their mission is “to create a bold, engaging platform for exciting, engaging, and thought-provoking art with minimal risk to artists and audiences alike.” I applied for this internship because I am passionate about the music and entertainment industries and would love to help a local non-profit organization.  

I hope to grow and sharpen my social media and marketing skills as this is my first internship solely focusing on my field of interest and college major. I would love to expand my expertise in navigating the various social media platforms of Instagram, Facebook, TikTok, and Threads and obtain a comprehensive understanding of each platform’s target audience, unique features, and best practices. Another learning goal is to produce exciting and impactful content that is catered to each platform and will connect with users to increase audience engagement and following while building brand awareness. Additionally, I would like to develop my marketing research skills by analyzing the social media strategy of Scranton Fringe and its competitors.  

It is my dream and long-term goal after graduation to secure a job in the music and entertainment industry. This internship with Scranton Fringe has tremendous potential to positively impact my career path by helping me break into these hard-to-enter industries, as I will obtain first-hand experience, knowledge, and skills working for a performing arts organization. This internship will give me the opportunity to grow my network and make lasting connections, which is an essential element to success in finding a job in the industry I hope to work in one day. Additionally, my Scranton Fringe internship will give me confidence in my marketing expertise since I will spend time developing my skills and knowledge, specifically in the digital marketing field.
