After being in the Platinum PR office for a few weeks now, I must admit that most of my experiences have not exactly matched my original expectations of this internship. However, I am not saying this in a bad way. After spending most of my summer working at my part-time job, I am unfortunately used to the strict, hostile environment I am generally forced to work in. Personally, I tend to be much more open minded and laid back, as long as everyone is working and getting their jobs done. The older I get, the more I realize that some people just do not feel the same way about life as I do and that is okay.
Luckily for me, though, I feel as if I fit in more with the other employees and enjoy my work environment more at Platinum PR. In fact, in just these few weeks I have learned a lot about the business and about public relations in general. I have been exposed to different, effective tools public relation specialists can use and I’ve learned more about what a public relations business actually does on a day to day basis. I feel fortunate that I have the opportunity to work here and learn. All of the employees have been incredibly helpful and friendly when I have questions and I am truly looking forward to all of the important things I will learn throughout the rest of the semester. As I continue to keep a journal of my experiences across the semester, I feel confident in saying that I will be able to share valuable and positive experiences.
