First Month at MWW

When I found out that I was going to be an associate at MWW Group, I was extremely excited.  My out-of-work lifestyle, which I had originally dubbed “fun-employment,” proved to be “not-so-fun-employment” after a week and I was anxious to start anew. At the same time, I was excited to have the opportunity to work in a PR agency and put my hard earned college knowledge to work.

Having had internships in the past, I did not know what to expect of my role at MWW. If my past was any indicator, I imagined I would be taking coffee orders and doing post office runs – both of which I must say I excel at, however, this was not the case.

I found that at MWW, an associate is just as important as any other employee. I have been given assignments of value and have finally had the opportunity to prove my strengths in the PR field. In the month that I have been here I have had the opportunity to work on pitches, media lists, and various other important assignments, which is far in excess of the responsibilities I have had in any of my other work experiences. I was able to get media coverage for our client, Ming Wang, in both a daily newspaper as well as a local radio station.  At MWW I feel like an integral member of the team.

This experience so far has confirmed that I love public relations and that applying to MWW Group was the best decision I could have made.
