All of us went through a long process of interviews and difficulties in deciding to join the Portland Senior Experience.
However stressful that was, I am glad that I took this opportunity to get involved in a new form of the public relations through my internship. Now, we are getting ready to leave the University of Oregon’s blanket and head into a world of business suits and briefcases for our next series of interviews.
My main goal for this term was to acquire the skills to enable me to leave college prepared to enter full-time employment in public relations.
No one can say it has been an easy transition. The move to Portland, MAX rides to and from work and late nights were all a challenge for me. Yet, through this experience I did gain experience and skills that will help me be better prepared for what may come.
We all need to hang in there, keep pushing and just know that everything is going to work out the way it should.
