Last week (yes I’m late on this posting) marked the end of our time with two very fabulous interns. Courtney and Chris started with Konnect PR back in January, and from day one were total rock stars!
Courtney came to Konnect all the way from Brigham Young University in Utah where she is finishing up her final semester and on her way to receiving a bachelor’s degree in Communications. Confident, poised and a true professional, she impressed us from the start with her immense knowledge of the PR industry, ability to go above and beyond on all assignments, and essentially become an overall right hand assistant to each person in our office. Her sparkling personality made her a pleasure to have around and allowed her to blend seamlessly as a part of our team. We know Courtney will be an incredible asset to the next company who is so lucky to get her.
As a graduate student at USC getting his master’s degree in Communications Management, Chris brought incredible skills in writing and research having expertly wrote an array of solid press releases and media alerts for clients, and confidently pitched and reached out to top level editors and media in securing valuable information for our publicists. This knowledge, combined with his larger than life personality makes me both confident and proud in saying Chris will undoubtedly go on to achieve a wonderful career in any field he pursues. Whether it be in public relations, the entertainment industry (because he is a character), or another field of his choice, his hard work and dedication is both valuable and admirable, and will carry him on to great things.
With their motivation and drive came two very genuinely good people, making Courtney and Chris so easy to welcome and quite difficult to say good bye to. We will always have gratitude for their hard work and dedication, and wish them much success in their future endeavors. 🙂
