As you probably already know, I’ve been the public relations research assistant at Come Recommended since the end of September. I’ve spent the last several months conducting research for blog posts and infographics for our clients. When a spring/summer position opened up for a content creator trainee, I took a writing test to see if I would be right for the job.

She was the perfect person to give us some insight into finding our footing after graduation. read more »
Last weekend, we raised $12,374,034.46 at the 46 hour Penn State Dance Marathon. I spent 36 hours on my feet in the stands with PRSSA. I am so proud of what my school accomplished this year. This was my final THON as a student at Penn State and it was a weekend I will never forget.
