Writing Major Curtis Venetta recently interned at Hville Blast, an organization that produces content concerning businesses, news, events, and more in the Huntsville area. In his own words, Curtis graciously discussed his internship experience and how his College of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences education boosted his success.

About the internship:

Working with Hville Blast has been an amazing opportunity. I work with a very creative team every day to produce engaging content that shows off all the exciting happenings in Huntsville. I'm proud to say I've written over 100 articles for our website, and I've seen our social media following increase exponentially in the year I've worked with them.

How my CAHS education helped:

I've been able to apply what I learned in Intro to Journalism, Social Media Marketing, Technical Writing, and Public Speaking to my everyday tasks with Hville Blast. I've learned a lot about newsworthiness, SEO and professional communication.

Thank you, Curtis, for sharing your experience!
