Oh, the Places You'll Go
By Sylvia Ogilvie, Intern (@sylviaillini)
As my first week at Fusion PR comes to a close, I realize two things — one is that there is a lot of information a person can learn in four days; the other is that there is still a TON more to learn for the other seven weeks they’re at a company.
So far, I’ve already started to learn how to create briefing documents, editorial calendars and awards lists. I’ve also had the opportunity to listen in on a couple of team calls in which I was able to hear, first-hand, what some of Fusion PR’s clients are all about. I knew very little about PR firms when I arrived here, and even less about technology-oriented companies, but I feel like I’ve already learned a great deal about them during my time here.
I hope to learn even more and I’m sure I will. My goals for the rest of my time here are to integrate myself in the PR world, and get some hands-on experience with research, list building and maybe even some direct contact with clients. I think that Fusion will definitely provide me with the right environment to achieve those goals.
