My name is Jessica (but please just call me Jessi), I am a student at the University of Oregon, majoring in public relations and minoring in biology. I am in my final year of my undergraduate degree; I couldn't be more excited to move into "the real world" and finally put all of my knowledge to use.
I am a member of the Public Relations Student Society of America, where I am on the communications team. The communications team is currently focusing on rebranding the UO PRSSA image and maintaing social media outlets. I am on a team of five participating in the nation-wide competition conducted by PRSSA, called the Bateman Case Study. (Read more about the Bateman case study here.) For my final undergraduate term, I've been accepted into a program called the Portland Senior Experience. This means that during spring 2011 I will be living in Portland, going to school, and gaining more professional experience.
I am a driven and organized individual that truly enjoys the field of public relations. I am interested in agency and in-house public relations and my favorite aspect of public relations is the social media element.
Through my schooling, I have used social media press release sites (such as pitch engine), I have analyzed public relations campaigns, I have written public relations plans, and I have written social media proposals. You can check out some of my work below. Let me know if you have any questions.
