Michelle Flinn is spending the summer before her senior year at North Central College working as an intern at Carol Stream-based Humanitarian Service Project.

Michelle is majoring in organizational communication with a minor in broadcasting. After graduation she would like to work in public relations or media relations. During the first week of her internship she worked with the organization’s community outreach coordinator writing press releases.

Michelle learned about the organization through the College and is looking to get office experience and an understanding of how the organization helps needy senior citizens, children and families throughout DuPage and Kane counties through its programs.

When asked what interested Michelle in working with HSP she said, “I am excited to be able to see how this amazing organization helps all the deserving people in their programs,” the organization wrote on its blog.

Organizational communication is among more than 55 majors and minors offered at North Central College, where students have opportunities to pursue competitive internships on campus and in the Naperville and Chicago areas, join the honor society Lambda Pi Eta and become involved in student government and other campus organizations.
