Cajon Grad Interns with PR Firm
(SAN BERNARDINO, Calif.) Upon graduating from Cajon High school, Jazmin Eboni Jett started interning at Dameron Communications, a position she attained through the ASTERISK program.
The Accelerating Success Through Employment and Responsibility, Inspiration, Skills and Knowledge or ASTERISK program gives students in the San Bernardino City Unified School District an opportunity to work in a professional environment during school breaks.
Jett believes she was fortunate to be placed at a public relations firm. She is very happy to be placed in a work environment that directly relates to the field she is studying at the university.
Jett is studying communication: public relations this fall at California State University, San Bernardino and she is the first in her family to go to college.
“Interning at Dameron Communications has helped to better prepare me to start my college career,” said Jett.
While interning, she learned to be more organized and efficient, became more observant, learned how to multitask and learned how to prioritize. Jett walks away from her internship with a better understanding of working in the field of public relations, and a general feel as to how a business operates.
“I appreciate the importance that was placed into my care,” said Jett. “I felt like I was not only an intern, but a part of the staff.”
She feels that she has gained a sense of independence and realized that she is responsible for her actions. This internship was her first job experience.
