Arielle Haynes is a recent graduate of Florida State University with a Bachelor of Science in Public Relations. Arielle desires to become a public relations professional in the sports, entertainment, fashion, or event planning area. After a year or two of fully immersing myself in the public relations field I attend communication graduate school to enhance my public relations knowledge. My experience while in college has prepared me for success in the public relations field. My motivation and involvement while in college gave me the opportunity to develop skills in the areas of campaign planning, recruitment, writing, social media, crisis management, networking, communication, leadership, public speaking, motivation, accountability, detail-oriented event planning, organization, financial management, and more. These skills will help me to successfully dive into the public relations field and become an asset to the company I work for. No job is to big or to small for me to do.
