Exit Blog for my PTE Internship
Written By: Alexandra Gold
Over the past 12 weeks, I have gained hands on experience with different aspects of marketing, communications and public relations. I am a marketing major at Florida Gulf Coast University, so I was never exposed to the public relations side of business in my curriculum. My mentor at PTE was the PR specialist and project manager, Lisa. Her guidance has helped me become comfortable with my writing and I will always keep her tips for writing in mind. I wrote my first news release here at PTE and continued to write them throughout my internship, honing my skills and advancing my knowledge. I also got to use my creativity by writing blog posts and developing social media content calendars for clients. I even had the opportunity to sit in on a client meeting to observe the topics discussed. Working in the business environment at PTE has helped me grow as a professional. My business skills are stronger and I feel like I have a better understanding of what I’ve been learning in school. I was able to apply what I’ve been learning in my major to real situations. I would like to thank the entire PTE family for making me feel welcome and for teaching me new skills that will help me in my future endeavors. The past 12 weeks have been extremely rewarding and I wouldn’t trade my experiences at PTE for anything.
