PR Agency Work

My blog has been hanging around about five to 12 views daily since I don’t post as regularly anymore. But yesterday it jumped to 38! I thought that was pretty interesting.

Agency work sounds so exciting and I’ve really enjoyed reading Time Well Spent, an article in PR Tactics and The Strategist Online written by an intern about her PR firm internship experience.

I really would like to get some agency experience. Ever since my first PRSSA Spring Conference when I heard about Franco Public Relations Group, I have wanted to work at an agency. Then, last fall, I job shadowed two CMU alumna that work there (check out Lauren and Nikki). They were fantastic and really got me excited about agency work. My post about their session relating to agency work at the CMU PRSSA Spring Conference has received more hits than any other post on my blog.

I think that even if I decided I didn’t want to work at an agency for the rest of my career, the experience would be priceless. The experience of multiple clients and projects would teach me a lot.

I do really like my publications internship with CMU Public Relations and Marketing though. I think CMU is a great school and I like the publications area. I do a lot of writing! But ever since I was in junior high, I have been saying I wanted to be the editor of my own magazine. I think my experience with publications might help me with that dream. But I think all the experiences with CMU PRM will help me in the future.

    Thanks for the shout out! I’m so glad you find what we had to say at the conference valuable! You’re rockin it…just by writing this blog alone you’re propelling ahead of those who don’t utilize social media. Keep it up!

    If you can dream it, you can do it! Who has ever said you have to stay in one career your entire life?

    Like agency? Try it out. Like being your own boss? Try that as well. You’ll learn as you go.

    I think my second career somewhere down the line will be to write children’s books. How’s that for being a dreamer? =)
