Objective

Currently, my main objective is to graduate on time from Washington State with a major in public relations, and a minor in psychology.

After, I hope to find an entry level position at any Public Relations or Advertising firm in Seattle or Los Angeles, but am very open to traveling anywhere.

Speaking of which, I dream to eventually see and experience the entire world - but especially India, Morocco, Greece, Rome, and Paris.

Summary

"Some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some hire public relations officers" - Daniel J. Boorstin. I'm Jenny, a Senior at WSU, and I dig Public Relations - it's my major, afterall. Currently, I'm at the basic level of my career as an Intern - but I feel as though the world is at my feet, and I'm ready to absorb as much information the field and my coworkers have to offer. Someday, I dream to rise to the top as a PR practitioner extraordinaire.

I learned time management, how to give constructive criticism, trained and oversaw progress of new employees, conducted opening and closing needs, arranged work schedules, balanced daily register receipts and sales, and was recognized by franchise for outstanding customer service.
