For this assignment, I had the pleasure of shadowing Kara Hooper. She works at Abshire Public Relations & Marketing which is located in Savannah,Georgia (this is where I am going to be doing my public relations internship in a few weeks). I had an amazing day! My day started off running a few errands and getting to know Kara . Some of the highlights of the day included when I was given the opportunity to help with some of their work for two current clients. The two clients that I got to do some work for was the town of Garden City and The Coastal Bank which is located in Pooler, Georgia. I got to help create an invitation for The Coastal Bank and write a press release for Garden City.
While I was shadowing, I found out a few interesting things about the public relations field. The thing that I found the most important was that your days are never the same in the public relations field. I also got to witness first hand the importance of the internet and email communication within the field.
After getting a chance to spend a day at Abshire and get a peek at what a day is like in the public relations field, I am extremely excited about graduating and getting a chance to work in the field. I am also looking forward to completing my internship at Abshire Public Relations & Marketing.
Attached below is the Powerpoint presentation that I presented to my class:
