Busy, Busy, Busy…

Since my internship at Liggett ended over 2 months ago I have been keeping busy with school, law school and job applications, and my new position as a public relations intern. After returning to Chapel Hill for my senior year at UNC, I applied for various PR positions on and off campus, finally choosing to accept one with UNC’s School of Information and Library Science. Although I am doing the same things that I was involved with at Liggett—writing news releases, monitoring news coverage, creating media lists and coordinating mailings—it has been a completely new experience because I only work for one client, the school. It has shown me a new side of public relations and I have learned more about libraries and information systems than I ever thought I would. My experience at Liggett helped me not only to land the position initially, but to impress my co-workers with my knowledge of various aspects of PR.

As I look back on my internship at Liggett, I have truly come to appreciate all of the people I was able to work with and the lasting relationships that I have formed. I look forward to staying in touch with everyone from the program and bragging to all of them about my basketball team come November…Go Heels!
