Employer Testimonials


"Crain Communications and Business Insurance have benefited greatly from our involvement with the BPEF intern program. The quality of editorial interns we get through the program has been consistently high for at least the last decade, which is remarkable. It's encouraging to see this and gratifying to be able to help develop talented young journalists into the next generation of newsroom leaders."

--Regis J. Coccia, editor at Business Insurance, Crain Communications Inc.

"The BPEF interns that we've had over the years have been fantastic. Frankly, we don't know how we would have gotten several key projects done this summer without the help of our intern. Journalism schools unfortunately do not give much attention to the b-to-b world. What we've been able to do is send our interns home with an incredibly positive b-to-b experience that they will share with fellow students.”

--Ty Bobit, president and chief operating officer of Bobit Business Media

"Working with BPEF has been such a great experience. The process was so stress-free, and the interns they brought us over the five-year period I was managing editor were such interesting, hardworking, vibrant young people. They all significantly contributed to the magazine and added to the family-like atmosphere of the editorial group. Most of them have stayed in touch with the magazine, and the editors enjoy hearing about their progress. Some of them are even still writing for the magazine."

--Ingrid Spencer, former managing editor at Architectural Record, The McGraw-Hill Companies
