Make things happen. Although I created the image featured above for my internship at Career Services, I can relate to this design on a very personal level. I live my every-day life with the mentality that I want to make things happen. That I need to make things happen. Living like this means that most days are spent making and creating in hope of reaching eventual end goals.
Reaching end goals is something that takes up significantly less time in my life and I’m guessing, in yours also. Said times are rare moments.
This week was one of those magical times when this actually happened. This week saw the completion of three main events that not only signify the end of my time in graduate school, but also illuminate the future that I am soon to have.
Here’s a recap:
- Sponsors’ Night: This past semester I have spent 9 hours every week interning for Syracuse University Career Services. I am so thankful for having had this experience and being able to develop my PR skills, specifically writing and graphic design. Although my last day is not until this coming Tuesday, the internship is essentially over, having culminated at sponsors’ night this past Monday. A way to celebrate the end of the semester and recognize the PR Practicuum students, sponsors’ night was a lot of fun and a great way to wrap up the semester.
2. Chobani Internship: I am extremely excited to announce that I have been offered and have also accepted a full-time internship position with Chobani this summer! My position will focus on internal communications (an area of interest of mine) and also allow for some community relations experience. Words can not describe how excited I am to be working for a company that I watched grow from nothing. When I began my Master’s program last summer I possessed the dream of working at Chobani. To now see this dream become a reality is overwhelming in the best of ways.
3. Campaign: This whole semester I have been working with five of my colleagues to complete a campaign for our client, the New York Beef Council. This project was actually a lot of fun to work on as I was able to design a lot of graphics and also make “cow pie” cookies for the presentation. That being said, it is always a relief to be finished with major projects, especially as the semester draws to a close.Yesterday we pitched our campaign to our client and were rewarded by her asking for a copy of our campaign book.
Congratulations to my wonderful team!
In summary, it’s always fulfilling when hard work pays off. My time at Newhouse has been absolutely incredible and nothing short of life-changing. To watch everything fall into place is the best thing I could have asked for.
