San Clemente Times

As the sun sets on summer for many college students, we bid farewell to our summer advertising intern, Rachael Serceki.

Serceki, a San Clemente High School graduate, is starting her sophomore year at San Diego State University. She is majoring in journalism with an advertising emphasis and will likely minor in marketing.

Serceki said after college she wants to work for an advertising agency and possibly abroad.

When not at school, you might see her working at Peet’s in Talega. She’s an awesome barista!

“Rachel is very creative and great with clients,” said Susie Lantz, advertising manager of the San Clemente Times, who mentored Serceki throughout the summer. “We hope she will come back to help this winter during our Best of San Clemente Ole Awards.”

What Serceki said she liked about her internship included learning how to work with our clients to create ads and learning the importance of advertising for the local business community.
