Greetings from this Los Angeles public relation firm’s newest employee! I’m Shannon, the new social media assistant here at Konnect Public Relations. I am currently right in the midst of my second week on the job, and I am happily settling in and finding my groove. I’ll admit, familiarizing myself with multiple clients as well as updating all of their social media while getting to know all the girls was a little intimidating at first. Now almost finishing up my second week, I can juggle multiple clients and have found out exactly how to moderate my time. One of the perks of working in social media is always being in the know. With clients ranging from baby gear, to cookware, to vegan snacks, I definitely can say I have gained a plethora of knowledge.
One client has been particularly beneficial to research in regards to a current “situation” or problem, I’ve been facing. A new job can be stressful, not to mention driving in LA traffic on a daily basis, and being a 20-something new to Los Angeles. I don’t know about you, but when I stress, my skin hates me for it. Luckily for me the BeWell Expo (BeWell Twitter, BeWell Facebook) is coming to Los Angeles in September, and you can bet I’ve been picking up on some great skin care tips and product suggestions while marketing for them. I can’t wait for the actual event!
Skin issues aside, I am elated to be working for a public relations agency like Konnect PR. Everyone has been more than welcoming, and it is so refreshing to share creative ideas with like-minded people on a daily basis. I am extremely excited for what lies ahead. You will definitely be hearing more from me. Did I mention the window behind my desk is a lovely 6th story view of the Downtown Los Angeles city-scape? However, I believe it is the view from the front of my desk that is more worth mentioning..
