Jonathan Morales ’18 interns at Sunfun Info Co. in Taiwan

Jonathan Morales '18

The organization I worked for is the largest smartphone dating app provider in Taiwan. The company is responsible for a handful of dating apps that are available in Taiwan and many other countries around the world. I was responsible for translating hundreds of phrases and sentences from Chinese to English, fixing in-app grammar-related errors, and providing consulting services for the apps in America. My largest responsibilities were finding and establishing a relationship with an American freelance reporter, and finding online influencers for the company to hire.

I learned that I would be very competent in a Chinese work environment with my Chinese speaking ability. I also learned that I am competent in independently learning about new industries, which makes me feel very adaptable. Being the only one in the office fluent in English, I was responsible for finding an American freelance reporter to promote the apps. Freelance reporting was a field I knew nothing about. I successfully learned about pricing and communicated with many reporters and I eventually organized a budget for hiring someone which I submitted to the company’s head of marketing. I was given a lot of responsibility and I was able to learn so much.

Victoria Tarantino ’16 combined her love of fashion and women’s studies at Prada in NYC.

During my time at Prada, I worked underneath the Public Relations Managers and Assistants of the men and women’s collections. My main responsibilities included collecting both digital and print press clippings of any mentions of Prada or its brands (Miu Miu, Chuch’s and Carshoe). I was also responsible for taking inventories of samples, pulling samples for sendouts, delivering samples for photoshoots, trafficking magazines to employees, and updating the expected credit reports, which I had predicted in my proposal. I would constantly ask for new projects and offer my help in any way possible because I wanted to learn as much as I could about both fashion PR and Prada.
