Interning for the Department of State in Rome
By Rachel Brumenschenkel ‘18
How cool would it be to complete an internship abroad?
This semester, Morgyn Miller ’18 is interning in the Public Affairs office of the U.S. Department of State in Rome, Italy. Morgyn is majoring in national security and foreign intelligence analysis.
Some of her internship responsibilities include drafting and distributing the Embassy’s primary news product, serving as the Embassy’s social media manager, assisting in setting up Embassy media interviews and making contacts with well-known journalists covering the Vatican, and capturing photographs of notable U.S.-Vatican events.
Before she left for her internship, I asked Morgyn a few questions about the experiences she will have:
For what are you most excited?
I am most excited to be working at the U.S. Embassy to the Holy See. This Embassy in particular works on human trafficking, counter terrorism and inter-religious dialogue. Being able to live and work in Rome is an incredible opportunity that I am extremely grateful for.
How did you find your internship?
I found the internship online while looking for semester-long internships. The best place to find government internships is USAJobs.gov.
What is your career goal?
My career goal is to work for the Federal Bureau of Investigation and to work on human trafficking initiatives. This internship will help me attain these goals by providing networking opportunities and a glimpse of what it is like to work for the federal government.
