Blog: Ouellet ’16 Learns About PR, Marketing at California-Based Nonprofit

June 11th, 2014 by 

NAME Adam Ouellet ’16

HOMETOWN Hubbardston, Mass.

AREAS OF STUDY Music and history double major

WHERE HE’S INTERNING “I will be working on public relations and marketing at Music at Kohl Mansion, a chamber music series located in Burlingame, Calif.” Music at Kohl Mansion is a nonprofit organization that presents a series of chamber music concerts and provides educational programming at local schools.


WHAT HE’S MOST LOOKING FORWARD TO “As a classically trained tenor who is accustomed to on-stage performance, I’m most excited to learn what it takes for a nonprofit musical organization like Music at Kohl Mansion to function behind the scenes. Also, considering that I’ve never been out to the west coast, I’m eager to experience what life is like in the Bay Area.”

WHY HE’S BLOGGING “I thought that it would be a great excuse for me to periodically journal my experiences over the course of the summer. I also thought that other people could gain some insight from my time working at Music at Kohl Mansion and figuring out life on the west coast (fingers-crossed!).”

CAREER GOAL “Ever since elementary school, music and the performing arts have always played a large role in my life — whether it was in choir, musicals or recitals. Since music is what brings me joy, I know that going forward I want the arts to be a part of my career in some shape or form.”

ABOUT SIP Internships through the College’s Summer Internship Program are developed through the strong network of Holy Cross alumni, parents, and friends throughout the country and are earmarked and designed specifically for Holy Cross students. This year 165 students have internships at 120 sites offered through the program.
