Intern Diaries: Week 2

I’m now finishing my second week at Rountree Communications and I’m excited to have been able to put some of my stowed-away writing skills to work! Working with the RC team, I’ve drafted press releases, created blog content and researched and composed social media posts. It feels great to know that the effort and hours I am putting in here have tangible and beneficial effects for our clients – it definitely beats alphabetizing and being a coffee runner!

I’ve also gotten a beside-the-scenes look into the media world. Earlier in the week, Lindsay took me to a Raleigh Public Relations Society Meeting (she’s a board member for the group) and we took a tour of our local CBS affiliate, WRAL’s newsroom. It was so neat to see the people we work with on stories in action and to learn some tricks for working with journalists.

Lindsay and Rick are keeping me very busy these days and I can’t wait to tackle my next batch of tasks! I’ll check back in soon!
