“To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.” -Ralph Waldo Emerson
So guess what? I’ve finished my internship at the lovely CBS47 news! I had so much fun and being able to intern at a real news station was an experience I will never forget. I had fun, made some friends, and found out that I can still be myself, and not pretend to be someone else. I was able to see journalism at it’s finest.
I hung out with the advertising department and learned the importance of selling. I chilled with the secretary and caught up on the latest soap opera gossip. I chilled with the graphics department and learned everything that goes into making that perfect commercial, and cool webpage layout. I watched the ladies in traffic control handle everything.
As a publicist it was nice to see that my skill set allowed me to be able to help every department. I could even see myself working at a news station in the public relations/advertising department in the future if I wanted. Overall it was a fun, exciting, and informative experience I will always remember. Now I’m off to find a job that pays for my expertise.
Scandal’s new episode premieres tonight.
And I’m losing my mind. Would you like to know why?
Well for one, I love the scandal fans. They are creative and have an imagination that can rival any other real fiction writer. Apart from that they offer and bring an excitement to television that has been missing for a long time. People never really get excited about television anymore and it’s sad because there are some really creative plots going on lately. Watching Scandal makes me excited as a public relations person (not because of the presidential affair) because it makes me want to create or be apart of something that makes people crave to know what exactly is happening and what we can expect from a person or event. Bringing excitement to a business known to excite others can be difficult; however I am willing to don my gladiator suit and put back on the white hat.
“Without leaps of imagination or dreaming, we lose the excitement of possibilities. Dreaming, after all is a form of planning.”
― Gloria Steinem
So guess what? I’m looking for a job in PR!!!
I’ve talked with some people and when I talk with them about finding a job and moving on to the next part of their lives, they don’t seem as excited. The reactions ranged from terrified to doubtful. I mean don’t get me wrong; I’m very nervous about life post college. I want to attend grad school, but I want to work in the field of public relations. I think that finding the job can be scary because every topic you’ve learned in your major will be tested out in the real world. But that’s the fun part, showing the knowledge you’ve learned and how you interpreted it. I’ve applied to BOOM Marketing in San Diego. I want to work there and I think that any entry level position in public relations is a start in the right direction, and plus it’s in San Diego! Wish me luck bloggers! Wish me luck
