It was during college that I first became interested in the public relations field, so I decided to major in PR. I took all of the required courses and four years later at graduation, I “strutted my stuff” across the stage and assumed I would have a PR job lined up within a matter of weeks. However, a year and a half and multiple interviews later, I found myself still without a PR job. I was told time and time again that I lacked ‘real world’ experience as I never held a PR internship during college, so I began looking for the right PR internship, willing to put in my time and get more experience in order to one day fulfill my dream of working at a PR agency. Soon thereafter, I discovered Aria was looking for a full-time intern so I reached out, interviewed, and got the job!
