Fall 2015 Intern Diaries: Entry #1

Hello! My name is Jeremy Eisengrein and I am the 2015 fall intern for Rick Rountree Communications. I am currently a senior at Elon University majoring in strategic communications with a minor in business administration. At Elon I am involved with several student organizations including PRSSA (vice president), AAF (president), Live Oak Communications (senior account executive) and Elon Campus Recreation (marketing manager).

My two weeks at Rick Rountree Communications have been great! After a wonderful lunch on my first day with Lindsay, I dove right into researching clients and learning more about what RRC does for each. After the initial research and orientation, I’ve been put to work quickly! Whether it is creating social media content and pitches or doing press clippings and research, I feel as if I am already fully immersed into the day-to-day operations of the agency.

My objectives for this semester are two-fold. First, I want to gain a better understanding of what an agency truly needs to operate effectively and efficiently. Furthermore, I want to leave RRC with new skills and projects for my portfolio.

I look forward to posting updates here about all the exciting new responsibilities and work opportunities I get to experience!
