New Intern On Board
Welcome Taylor Childress – I am a new, fresh, and excited intern at MSGPR and have just successfully ended my first week, and I can’t wait to see what more it has to offer. I am from a city right outside of Houston, Texas and have grown up with wanting to do PR since I was in middle school. It isn’t the meeting people, or the events that it will take me to, it’s networking and letting people trust me with their companies. Of course I love events, who doesn’t? PR can take you in so many directions that I have a wide variety to choose from. MSGPR is leading me to know what I want, and I cant wait to see what that is when the time comes when I graduate from college in a few years.
Most college juniors are at the pool for the summer, traveling, and more, but I wanted to spend my summer preparing myself. Don’t get me wrong. I would love to be enjoying my summer at pool too, but PR is my version of fun. It fills me with excitement and puts a big smile on my face whenever I think about it.
People have already said to me, “I bet you just go get coffee and run errands for them, right?” Wrong! MSGPR is giving me expeierence and teaching me what classes haven’t done. I tell people I am writing press releases, rewriting stuff for websites, and even running video camera at events (never thought much about working with a video camera, but I kind of like it). The people at MSGPR are teaching me things I had never even thought of and broadening my interests. Everyone at MSGPR has their own thing to offer and they are all like puzzle pieces in a way. Each person makes a perfect fit for the firm completing the whole puzzle that makes MSGPR. And I’m so thankful that I can contribute to a little bit of the puzzle. I get to be a part of it as I’m learning from each and every person.
Of course I still run errands but that’s the “intern” thing to do. And of course there are times when I have no idea what to do, and at times it gets stressful, but the fast-paced environment is my thing and I wouldn’t trade it for the world.
