Summary

      Hi, my name is Stephanie Feirn.  I graduated from the University of Wisconsin Rock County in May 2009 where I received my Associate Degree in arts and science.

    I am currently a senior at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater where I am pursing my Bachelor's Degree in Communication.  Advertising is my major, and public relations is my minor.

    I will graduate in December 2011.  I can't wait to puruse my dream job in an advertising company/agency upon graduation.  My goal is to design ads for magazines and billboards.

    I am an active member of Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA).  I have helped with event planning, for such events such as, PRSSA Regionals which were held at UW-W.  I have helped plan homecoming week, banquets and the Polar Plunge.  I was on the lodging committee for PRSSA regionals.  My job was to call about 5 hotels close to UW-W and get prices and info about the hotels.  Then we compared which were the better deals, and booked the rooms for our guest speakers.  I also write for the PR Insight. 

    I work part-time at two restaurants and currently was chosen for a part-time summer job in the iCIT Department (Technology Department) at UW-W.  I will be a PR assistant.  My job will consist of website designs, blogging, designing brochures, creating powerpoints and helping with the ten Plan-It-Purple orientations for freshman.

Serving

I have had experiencing with being a server at two restaurants.  Serving requires confidence and being comfortable with people/the public.  You also must treat everybody with respect, smile and have patience.  As a server, you also have to learn to multi task and carry trays above your head and on your shoulder.  Balancing is another skill; you must be able to balance drinks on a round tray while serving the other drinks off of it.  You also need to learn to handle any problems in a professional manner before they reach management level.
