12 Weeks: Why Interning Is A Good Thing

In public relations we’re often made to feel we each have to be doing certain things in a specific order to be successful. For me this included being told I should intern around throughout college instead of staying with one agency. Coming out of college, there was a lot of negative connotations and thoughts surrounding […]

Your Job Hunt…in Lauren Conrad Gifs

Hunting for a job, especially during post-graduation, can be difficult. However, Lauren Conrad understands the struggle. When you realize it’s time to start your job search and update all your documents When someone emails you back about a job opportunity When you get an email for an interview When waiting for a Skype interview to start […]

No Yellow Brick Road

As I look at my fellow public relations graduates and friends, I have to ask, Does everyone seem to know what they’re doing next with their career but me? But then, I’m reminded, no. We weren’t promised a yellow brick road when we graduated, but no one warned us the streets were so tough against […]

Too Tired, Too Sleepy Or Hungover

She never wants someone to remember her as the one who was too tired, too sleepy or even hungover. Last night Miss America 2014 Nina Davulri mentioned being told some people will only meet Miss America once in their life. Nina realized she would be that Miss America for some people. We only meet some people once in […]

Turning the PR Page

For the first time I had to seriously question if it was time for a change to my young professional career. During my trip to Chicago last month it was time to decide what was next after graduation. I had to ask myself do I want to go full-time at the PR agency where I […]

Wake-Up Call Wednesday: Normal Gets You Nowhere

This morning I landed in Chicago with below freezing temperatures embracing me, big name PR agencies filling the city, skyscrapers towering and people surrounding me. It’s easy to immediately feel lost and small, especially when a drive through Michigan Avenue will remind you of all the things you can’t afford. I wonder how did some […]

Three Years! My Coming Out Anniversary

This month I’ve reached my three year anniversary of being out of the closet as gay and three years feels like a truly special place personally. For the past few months the thought often toyed around my mind of how I’ve never talked to my maternal grandmother about being gay, even though I’ve had conversations with […]

Everybody’s Free to Wear Sunscreen

Over the past week I hung out with PR mentees through FPRA. Talking with them reminds me of my PR mentor through FPRA and the times we had. One day when I was a freshman she shared the “Everybody’s Free to Wear Sunscreen” song with me. Now I share it with you all. Add a […]

I Haven’t Seen You Since Graduation. . .

This winter break in Pensacola I have had the privilege of seeing many of the people I graduated with and never talk to at a mini reunion party. At first I felt awkward about hanging out with so many people I never deeply talked to or hung out with but as the familiar faces rolled […]

Into the Black

As I organized the traditional Steak n Shake get together with my old theatre friends, I started to realize we truly began our new adult lives. Soon we won’t be coming back to Pensacola for school breaks and the holidays won’t be an exception to that. Eventually we may be reduced to seeing each other once a year if lucky. […]
