I can’t believe how long it’s been since I last posted. Time is moving quickly, and the days seem to be slipping from my grasp.
Last week was USF’s spring break, and I spent 11 days in the Nation’s Capital sightseeing, meeting up with old friends, and job hunting. Although most of my friends thought I was crazy for packing coats and scarves while they were packing swim suits and sunscreen, I still had an amazing trip and met a lot of fascinating people in the industry.
I interviewed with 8 different companies, and met countless professionals with a wealth of knowledge. Even if I don’t get an internship position with a particular agency, it was great to network with so many brilliant minds who have interesting experiences working in communications in D.C. It was very insightful to see how the city’s political landscape shaped many of the agencies’ cultures.
Well, sad to say, but spring break caused the inevitable– I’m behind in my school work, which leaves little time for the in-depth post I wanted to write today. I hope you all will stay tuned, because I have two great ideas for posts swimming around in my head.
A little teaser: one will be about the interviewing process itself and the other will be an actual interview with a recent college grad working at a premier agency here in Tampa.
