How do RLF interns gain real-world agency experience? They work on a variety of projects for clients in industries ranging from travel and tourism to commercial real estate. An average day might be spent writing a pitch for a national publication or joining an interactive team meeting to discuss project updates.
Our last summer intern spotlight is on Heather.
I am a strategic communications major at Elon University. As an active Public Relations Student Society of America member and leader, I have been able to travel across the country and learn from public relations leaders. When I’m not practicing public relations, I like to spend time outdoors swimming and hiking.
What is an important lesson you have learned in college?
You can’t do everything. Set priorities, and choose to pursue the things that matter most to you professionally and personally.
What is your dream job?
Media and presentation trainer. I love public speaking and interviewing.
Which summer flick are you most excited about seeing in the theater?
I’m more excited to catch up on old movies, but I’m a Johnny Depp fan, so I’ll say “The Lone Ranger.”
What is a fun fact about you?
I grew up on a wheat farm in eastern Washington.
What is your favorite part of being an intern at RLF so far?
I like the sense of a small community where everyone collaborates on projects. Everyone is very supportive here.
