Saying Goodbye to My First NY PR Job

Many people asked me why I left the top global public relations agency I worked at for two years. The answer isn’t simple, but it begins with the fact that I came to New York for the life-changing opportunity to have on one of the most well-known global companies as my client.

Coworkers Don’t Want to Hear Your Excuse

Going into the second week of my new job still felt like the honeymoon stage where my team and I gushed over each other and wondered how we ever worked without each other. However, there came the day that week where I mishandled an assignment and the honeymoon ended. Whenever we make a mistake at work, […]

Moving forward

It’s in my nature to be ecstatic for personal change, but I also worry about making a mistake. I repeat “I’m nervous, but I’m excited” when talking to others. However, I should only be saying “I’m excited for this opportunity.”

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Flirty Friday: “I Promise It Won’t Be Awkward”

I visited with the ladies of Skirt PR this morning when Lauren Berg Donovan, the agency vice president, talked about networking. In PR it’s important to foster relationships, but it can be rough starting out. One of her comments reminded me of dating: It’s a lot of, “Hey, do you want to want to grab […]

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 […]

Too Cute for You

Tonight I thought about the last few years of dating and my professional life. At many points along the way we get the feeling of “I can’t” when going for whatever or whomever we want. We keep seeing this great-looking stranger, and we tell ourselves, I can’t approach them. We see a fantastic opportunity and […]
