Idaho State University Public Relations Major

Summary

I am currently a marketing intern for the Idaho State University Athletics department. I work with vendors to promote businesses throughout ISU sporting events during both pregame activities and throughout the duration of the game. I am also in charge of marketing and promotions directed toward kids such as Benny’s Book Club, Subway Kids Club, and Ridley’s Tunnel Run. For about 5 years I have worked in positions that have kept me involved with the public whether it was cashiering or doing internships. I'm constantly learning skills to help fulfill that career I one day hope to hold. I am majoring in Public Relations with a minor in marketing and a minor in consumer economics as well.
