My name is Samantha Salcido, and I am an intern here at Konnect PR in the Food and Beverage department. It was a miraculous chain of events that led to my working in this pink-colored office, yet even more astonishing is the amount of learning and experience I have gained from being here in just these past few days.
Though I am originally from Long Beach and have lived in California all my life, I have discovered that working in Downtown Los Angeles is far different from the world I am used to – in the best way possible. I love being surrounded by tall buildings, meeting and seeing all different types of people, jamming out in my car when sitting in traffic (even more entertaining are the reactions I get from strangers next to me), but above all of this I enjoy coming into an office each morning where I am greeted by some of the most wonderful individuals you will ever meet. These are the people of Konnect PR.
Initially, I was elated at being offered an internship at Konnect due to my great desire to work in public relations. Now, my enthusiasm for working here has become so much more than that. At the company training session on Wednesday, I really came to understand the core of Konnect PR and what this PR agency is all about. This is a place for passionate, driven individuals to grow not only as employees, but also overall in character and integrity. In addition to being seriously talented at what they do, the people at Konnect are genuine, interesting, and always willing to help you out. I could not imagine a more ideal work environment! GRATITUDE is currently my middle name.
I am excited to see what is in store for the future. In the meantime, back to work! 🙂
