M-School was a phenomenal internship to jump-start my career. For four months, I was the video intern at Today’s Parent, where I learned a wide range of skills that have helped me improve my visual storytelling.
From the beginning, the Today’s Parent staff was so welcoming and I really felt part of the team. I regularly sat in on story meetings and was able to contribute my own ideas and insights.

During the internship, I got to work on lots of really exciting projects. I created some documentary videos to complement online stories and I also helped to produce four brand-new video series for Today’s Parent. I learned so much about the process of video production, from the initial idea to the final edit. There were also opportunities for me to take photos for the magazine, which I loved since I studied photojournalism. It’s a really exciting time to be working with video in this industry, and, in particular, for a company with such a strong vision for online content.

Aside from my work experience at Today’s Parent, M-School also provided great lectures and information sessions with staff from across the company. We met with writers and editors, and toured many of the company’s facilities. In addition to the work experience with your magazine, you also get great exposure to all the brands in the company. M-School is great for learning new skills, making valuable contacts and getting a high-quality work experience. I highly recommend M-School to any students considering a career in journalism.
