Summary

I am looking for an internship for the summer of 2012 from early May to late August.  I am looking to land an internship that will allow me to use the skills I have obtained as a Communications studies major, all while learning all different aspects of Public Relations and Event Planning. I am hoping to expand my knowledge to hopefully land a good job prior to graduating in 2013.

I believe I would be a good candidate for a PR internship due to the many skills I have obtained through clubs I am involved in and the Communications Studies classes I have taken.

With being the head of a committee for Amor, active in my sorority Delta Zeta, and having taken Organizational Communcations, I have obtained many leadership and organizational skills that would allow me to benefit any PR company and its employees.
