Today is my first day of real, official, salaried job! Six months after graduation and I can proudly say that I am a real-life college graduate with a job! I am an intern success story…
My mom always took a photo of us G-E kids for every first day of school. And I thought my first official day of work shouldn’t be any different! Lame, but you have to continue the 20+ year tradition…
My job as Staff Writer for the University of Portland Marketing & Communication department mirrors my internship as Media Relations Assistant. I loved my internship and I just know that I am going to love my job. I really wanted to be able to write and in turn tell people’s stories.
And I get to do exactly that!
I will be continuing my work with media relations writing features and press releases while also working with marketing to promote the university’s RISE Campaign through stories, features, and releases.
I work with a wonderful group of people (hey Amy & Bridget!) and I am looking forward to the upcoming year of being a full-time employee of the University of Portland! Waldschmidt Hall is a pretty awesome place to work if I do say so myself.
I’m officially an adult!
Now I must deal with understanding my benefits… Health insurance, life insurance, retirement plan OH MY!
