Intern Experience: Fiona's Video Production Internship in Dublin

Global Experiences | October.18.2018

 

In a dingy diner in Dublin, intern Fiona M. sits across from a prestigious Irish documentary director over a cup of coffee. He proceeds to give her the best advice she’s received since starting her internship in Dublin: “You can tell a story and you know how to use a camera. Create something. The worst outcome is that nobody ever watches it.”

Just months before in the spring of 2017, Fiona had been happily working full-time with a video production company in the United States while taking classes part-time as a digital media graduate student at Bellarmine University in Louisville, Kentucky.

Inside an Irish Internship

Global Experiences | July.19.2016

In June when I arrived in Dublin and started my internship abroad, I started to slowly learn the differences between Irish and American work culture. A typical work day starts between 9-10 for everyone in the office I work in. However the atmosphere is more laid back so no one is really watching the clock for when anyone comes in. Everyone ends their work days at 5:30, unless there’s a Euro game going on, then the office clears out much earlier.
