Cole Oswald, Public Relations

Internship: The Davey Tree Expert Company

Through his internship with The Davey Tree Expert Company, public relations student Cole Oswald, ’23, has been working on various projects — and he says his public relations coursework successfully prepared him for this opportunity.

“I think Reporting and Media Relations helped prepare me for this opportunity the most by helping me strengthen my writing.”

Cole’s daily work as an intern consists of writing press releases that get posted to the corporate newsroom, working on a writing project for the Davey Calendar and collecting footage for the company’s YouTube series.

Advice for interns: 

“I would give future interns advice to network with as many Kent State alumni as possible. There are so many who work in this industry and having similar college experiences and instructors makes it much easier to connect with them.

All students in the School of Media and Journalism are required to complete an internship. Read about more student experiences here
