Internship Testimonials

Michael Wilczynski

Company: 103.5 Kiss Fm

Location: Chicago, Illinois

I had the two semester internship at 103.5 Kiss Fm. Well after my internship I was not hired by 103.5 Kiss FM, but I learned that the people I interned for talked with the program director at WSUN US99.5. After a phone interview and a in person interview, it was then that I was given a job as a weekend ON- Air Personality. They said between my internship and the skills I learned in school, that’s what helped me get the job. So I just wanted to thank everyone in the Comm Department for everything they have taught me and information I gained for when I needed to step out into the real world. So I figured I would let you know about my career after College and I hope to turn this weekend On-Air personality shift to a full time shift during the week, doing Purdue University Calumet proud!
