...the newest Public Relations Account Coordinator for Fifth Ring!
Huh? You heard me, I got a full-time PR job! And I could not be more excited, as if you couldn't tell already.
How it happened: well let me just say that God works in mysterious ways, sometimes I interpret that as playing a mean joke on me to test my patience. Mission accomplished! My patience was about all out and crazy about took over. I had been looking for a full-time position in Houston for the past four months with no luck at all. I mean not even a phone call or an interview, nothing! I started to give up and started looking for a part-time job and I got one as a sales associate at a clothing and jewelry store. Then one day I made a great connection with the Houston United Way media/marketing director. He looked over my resume and portfolio, was highly impressed and said "I think I know of someone who is looking to hire." BAM, less than 48 hours later I had a job. I emailed my resume-they liked it- then I emailed my writing samples-they liked it- then I interviewed-guess I didn't do so bad- then I took a writing test- then I had a job offer :) I DID IT! I did have to make an awkward phone call to my part-time employers and bail out, but they were really nice about it.
About the company: it is an international company called Pennebaker, but I will be working for the PR segment known as Fifth Ring. Fifth Ring's only location in the U.S. is in Houston. Pennebakers headquarters are located in Aberdeen, Scotland and they have other locations in Inverness (in Scotland) and Dubai. They offer services of brand and strategy development, public relations, digital media, design and production, and advertising.
I start Monday so I will keep my blog readers updated. And please remind me if I don't :) Life is about to get busy again, can't wait!
