RLF holds an intern boot camp each summer to introduce new interns to best industry practices and past agency projects. Our team members give interactive presentations on social media, advertising, media relations, crisis communications and more. RLF President Monty Hagler recently shared tips he learned at a WORLDCOM global partners meeting in South Korea two months ago.
RLF has four enthusiastic interns this summer. Today’s spotlight is on Liz.
I am a rising senior at Elon University. I come from Atlanta and am majoring in marketing and international business.
What is an important lesson you have learned in college?
An important lesson I have learned in college is that the older you get, the better it is to be unique. In high school I always thought I was supposed to be normal, but college has taught me that a person’s quirks can help them in their personal and professional life.
What is your dream job?
My dream job would probably be sports or travel related – maybe even both if I’m lucky! I would love to do marketing, brand management, or PR in either of the industries I mentioned, or at an agency.
Which summer flick are you most excited about seeing in the theater?
The movie I most want to see this summer is “Monsters University.” I love Pixar movies. It comes out on my sister’s birthday so hopefully she’ll let me drag her to see it as a “present.”
What is a fun fact about you?
I spent five months last fall as an exchange student in Singapore. I got to travel throughout Southeast Asia during my time there.
What is your favorite part of being an intern at RLF so far?
So far, I love the upbeat atmosphere and how friendly everyone is. I also like getting to do hands-on work; I feel like I have already learned so many new things, particularly about media relations.
