About a season ago, I left my comforting world of college, internships and late night talks in the dorms for the "real" world. As spring turned to summer, I found that the "real" world was what all my professors had warned me that it was - it was fricken' hard. As I began my job hunt, I was confident that all of my internships and professional experience would land me any entry level job I wanted.
I was dead wrong. After countless interviews, resume edits, cover letters and thank you cards, I found myself confused and defeated. However, my job hunt experience ignited a fire in me to succeed and led me to an interview on Wall Street with my current boss, Brittney Levine. I immediately connected with Brittney and saw the opportunity to join her newly launched (May 2014) company, BHL Productions, as not only a chance to enhance my PR skills, but to explore broadcasting and grow as a leader.
I am currently Brittney's right hand woman and serve as the account coordinator for BHL Productions. I am in a unique and wonderful spot of being the only employee of a newly launched company. This means that clients turn to me for all their needs, I pitch to huge media outlets, I speak with reporters, I appear at events right beside my boss, I guide interns, I produce segment content for television and attend shoots with E! News and PIX11 in NYC. I've learned so much, and it's just the beginning.
That first buzz.
This is the real me: what I love, what makes me happy and what makes me buzz.
