I started my journey through adulthood as a student at Rutgers University (go Knights!). I spent three years majoring in communications and minoring in French and Digital Communication Information Media. During my time there, I had three internships – in fashion, marketing, and communications. Each internship taught me something about myself and the workforce – lessons that I will share with you.
During my senior year, I landed my first full-time job as a Communications Specialist and decided to get my Masters in Communication – and I couldn’t be happier that I did.
Upon graduating, while working full-time, I earned my Masters and certification in strategic communication from Purdue University – the decision that helped me grow as a person and as a professional.
I started this blog because I got the most out of my internships – even if I had a few fumbles along the way. If I had a blog like this to reference before and during my time in the workforce, it could have saved me a lot of time and some embarrassing moments. I also started this blog because although I am a twenty-something (I’m sure you’re asking, “who is she to talk?”), a lot of the advice I am going to give you has come from personal experience or from those I have been lucky to call my mentors and life-long friends.
