Based in New York City, Vimeo is a leading high-quality video platform with over 26 million registered members and a global monthly audience of over 168 million people. Last summer, Vimeo hosted a CTE student from Brooklyn’s City Polytechnic High School to work on archiving, tagging, and categorizing videos.
Sam Morrill, Senior Curator at Vimeo, served as the student’s supervisor. “I had a great experience working with the student,” said Morrill. “He was eager to jump in and handle new projects and brought helpful new perspectives to the team. He was very professional and showed great poise in his work.”
“Our business is built on fostering strong communities and we appreciate the opportunity to work with young people in our home base in New York City and help support STEM education in New York. As someone who grew up in New York City, I enjoy helping to create opportunities for young New Yorkers."
The internship helped the student realize that all the things he learned in school apply in the real world and has helped him be more focused in his studies his senior year.
