Currently, I am enrolled in my last semester at Southern Methodist University majoring in Public Relations and Strategic Communications and minoring in Journalism. I also earned a bachelor’s degree in Art History from Trinity University.
Throughout an internship at emc3 in London last summer, I developed extensive event planning expertise. emc3, an events and marketing firm, specializes in brand marketing, coordinating corporate functions, and public relations. I worked with the events team in a variety of ways, including sourcing and calling venues, negotiating with sales people, and configuring the information and figures into PowerPoints for multi-million dollar clients, such as LinkedIn and HubSpot.
At HireBetter, a boutique recruiting firm in Austin where I worked after graduating from Trinity, I developed outstanding written skills. I was the go-to person at HireBetter for all written content, from a job description to a candidate profile. A particular responsibility I undertook was to write the CEO’s weekly blogs, which required creating the message he wanted to communicate, then drafting a piece that convincingly used his voice and effectively hit his desired points.
In addition, I have a successful track record of growing a company’s social media presence across various platforms. When I first arrived at HireBetter, social media was an afterthought. The Marketing Programs Manager brought me on to assist with the social media revamp, and we established a content editorial calendar involving weekly cross-promotions with our clients to deepen partnerships, and daily features of clients, employees for Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. The activity on HireBetter social media sites climbed steadily throughout my tenure.
