Tell Your Story Welcomes Intern Bailey Madden

Bailey Social PRHi! I am happy to report that I am Tell Your Story Brand Communications’ newest team member. Every once in awhile, I’ll share my point of view on different topics in the world on the blog for your (and my) enjoyment. Now, I’ll tell you a little about myself…

 

With my college years quickly coming to a close, my life is about to be thrown for a loop. Not only will I be done with college, but the idea of a “big girl” job will not be so far off. After graduating with a double-major in Public Relations and Communication, I hope to gain a public relations or marketing communications position working at an agency or in-house for a corporate brand.

 

In my spare time, I love to run and exercise – especially when Chicago decides beautiful weather is appropriate. Due to being a bit of a bookworm, I suppose reading is where my love for writing came from.

 

My public relations experience all started when I was selected to be a consumer marketing intern at the reputable GolinHarris international public relations agency. Completely overwhelmed and intimidated at first, I quickly learned the ins and outs of public relations by working on several clients in the food industry. At GolinHarris, I wrote media materials such as press releases, pitches, fact sheets, and corporate announcements. I even got to do some writing for a corporate web site, which was awesome. Needless to say, I fell in love with public relations as a whole and never looked back.

 

So, this is what brings me to you and Tell Your Story, i.e., a love for public relations and a desire to show you what I can do. I hope to bring everything that I’ve learned both in work experience and class work full circle so that my work produced here is the best that it can be. That being said, I’m excited for this opportunity and cannot wait to get to work.

Tell Your Story Welcomes Intern Emily Higgins

Tell Your Story InternshipHi! My name is Emily Higgins and I am a new intern for Tell Your Story. This is the first step in building my post college career and I’m very excited about this opportunity to assist George, Amanda and the Tell Your Story team in the unique and personal way they promote their clients’ brands.

 

I am currently a senior at DePaul University where I am studying for a degree in Communications and Media. However, where I started is far from where I am now. Over the past three years, I’ve had a variety of experiences, beginning with attending the University of Mississippi (Ole Miss) my freshman year.

 

I packed up and moved south in hopes of branching out and experiencing something new. Over the course of that year, I had many incredible experiences including the legendary football atmosphere, getting a taste of a very different culture, and had the opportunity to get a first-hand experience at the 2008 Presidential debates between Barack Obama and John McCain that took place on campus.

 

Although Ole Miss was everything I had imagined and more, I found that you can take the girl out of the city, but you can’t take the city out of the girl. I yearned to be back in the Midwest where I missed deep-dish pizza, Lake Michigan, fellow Bears fans, and shopping along Michigan Avenue— some of the things that make Chicago the best city in the world, and made my decision to transfer to DePaul easy.

 

In my spare time I am a volunteer at PAWS Chicago, a local animal shelter, where I help promote the idea of adoption and goal of creating a No Kill Chicago for stray and abandoned pets.

 

My major in Communications and Media at DePaul has piqued my interest in business communications, and I am eager to express my creativity and enthusiasm through my work at Tell Your Story!
