Today I proofread press releases for most of the day. I also took a couple trips down to the print center to pick up materials. Once it was for Molly Russell (Assistant Director of Brand Strategy), and the other time I don’t know who it was. I also researched press release software. I didn’t know before today that such a thing existed. I remembered that Michelle had told me that we use a service called Meltwater. I spoke with Stephanie to explore how we are using it and learned that it can’t do the kind of targeted search that I’m doing this semester.
I also spoke with Stephanie about the possibility of me continuing to work at Media Relations after the internship ends. It doesn’t sound like it will work out as there are no positions available. Moving forward, I may focus on finding media contacts again tomorrow.
