Hi, my name is Brittany, and I’m the newest Roundpeg team member. I am currently finishing up my Master’s Degree in the IUPUI School of Journalism’s Public Relations Program and had been seeking an internship within an Indianapolis PR firm. I interviewed with the Roundpeg team last week, and left knowing that I absolutely loved the culture and atmosphere. From the casual dress-code, to an environment which fosters and nurtures uniqueness, I knew this was exactly what I had been searching for. Everyone seemed so knowledgeable and sure of themselves, and I definitely wanted to be a part of such an esteemed company.
I got my wish! Here I am, on my first day at one of the most prestigious firms in Indianapolis and I could not be more excited to have the opportunity to work with such a talented group of people, and to be able to pick their brains on a regular basis. I will be interning under Jay Mattingly, the director of marketing, and Allison Carter, the director of communications. It doesn’t get much better than this!
I’m ready to let the learning begin and can’t wait to start researching, planning and implementing new techniques along the way. I consider myself to be a sponge of sorts, and intend to absorb every bit of information I can from this internship. I am looking forward to maturing my blog “voice” and learning the ins and outs of many social media platforms with Allison, as well as gaining an abundance of knowledge of WordPress and web design from Jay. This internship will absolutely increase my skill set, help me to create valuable connections in the Indianapolis public relations community and allow me the chance to create new writing pieces that can be added to my professional portfolio.
