Exit Blog for PTE Internship
Written By: Kallie Cahill
As I sit at my desk drafting my final blog post, the first thing I immediately think to do, is change my font to Century Gothic. This is just one of many technicalities that I have been taught at PTE. It may seem minor, but it has immense importance, because in PR you always want to make sure that your messaging aligns with your branding.
Pushing The Envelope has been one of the best internship experiences I could have asked for. I have learned more about the PR and marketing industry in my ten weeks of interning than I have in my four years of college. As a PTE intern, you are set to a high standard and are expected to be the best version of yourself possible. The PTE team gave us the opportunity to learn as much as we could in a short period of time. Every time I came into work I knew my schedule would be filled with tasks to be completed. If I didn’t know how to do something, I learned.
Now that I will be graduating in three weeks, I couldn’t be more thankful for my time spent with PTE. I truly believe that the job interviewers I’ve spoken with recently wouldn’t have spent nearly as much time on me if I didn’t have the experience from Pushing The Envelope. When they asked how I could track the success of a press release, I had an answer. If they asked if I knew how to create content for a blog, I said ‘yes.’ When they asked if I knew how to use excel, I responded with ‘definitely.’ This is all because of Pushing The Envelope. I truly am grateful for the entire team and what they have taught me.
Now, I can confidently go out into the workplace, knowing what I am doing. I will certainly keep the entire Pushing the Envelope team in my heart and remember what I’ve learned as I continue to grow in the PR profession.
