In this entry, as part of Help A PR Pro Out or HAPPO, I’d like you all to meet Elyse Kyro who is seeking a full-time job or paid internship here in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area. She’s looking to expand on a great start to her career thanks to an internship at the Mall of America and is open to a variety of opportunities but has a particular interest in gaining agency experience.
In May 2009 I graduated from Minnesota State University, Mankato, with a bachelor’s degree in mass communications and a minor in studio art. My emphasis of study in mass communications was public relations.
After graduation I was a public relations intern at Mall of America. During my internship with the Mall I frequently wrote press releases and media advisories; worked with members of the media and maintained Mall social network sites including Twitter, Facebook and YouTube; maintained coverage reports; and helped plan and execute the Big Green Conference, an environmental conference held at the Mall with more than 100 guests.
I enjoy working with people, posses a high level of energy, complete assignments with efficiency and enjoy the challenge of working under pressure. I have experience working with the Microsoft Office Suite, Adobe PhotoShop and InDesign.
I look forward to hearing from you.
