Campus to Career: Thanks for making the time to talk, Christina. Can you share a bit about your background and what led you to Viacom?
CD: I’m originally from Tampa, Florida, and attended the University of Florida studying public relations and business. I had always been familiar with Viacom brands and Paramount movies, and wanted to work with content I felt such a connection to.
Awesome! If you could give your intern-self some words of advice, what would they be?
Don’t be afraid to ask questions – your team and supervisors are there to help you and support your professional growth.
Solid advice. How did you feel supported by your team?
Since I interned at Paramount the semester before graduation, my team truly helped shape and define my career path. I was given amazing learning experiences, and had the opportunity to play a real role on major projects. The Campus to Career team was also an incredible resource in my post-graduate job search.
That is great to hear! What were some of your favorite Campus to Career events?
All of the networking events were awesome. I was able to learn so much about the business and meet people from departments I was interested in working in.
I especially enjoyed the End of Semester Forum [information session for Viacom interns to prepare them for the full-time job search] – it gave me invaluable insight on the Viacom interview process and resume best practices. I developed a close connection with Nick Delville, an entry-level recruiter, following my internship. He was an awesome part of my support system and a go-to resource throughout the job search – and he still is helping my professional development.
