    I worked at Red Light PR for less than a year

    Pros

    I learned so much about the public relations industry in the two months I interned at Red Light PR. Working side by side with people who have years of experience and witnessing first hand how they relate and communicate with clients is knowledge I will use in my remaining university years as well as my future business endeavors. At RLPR, I had the opportunity to experience a fast-paced environment that requires one... to think on the spot and complete tasks efficiently and effectively. I don't think I would have been given as many opportunities anywhere else.

    Cons

    The only possible con for working at RLPR was being challenged creatively, but that was not necessarily a bad thing. Having to come up with creative ideas for outreach and social media was definitely difficult but was a fantastic learning experience. These challenges taught me how to problem solve and work hard until the job was successfully completed.

    Advice to Management

    Management takes the interns under their wings and mentor them in the ins-and-outs of the industry. I developed leadership skills and learned to pay attention to detail.

    Cons

    -A bit unorganized -The interns I worked with weren't the best, they really didn't want to work so I picked up a lot of slack but that was good because it got me noticed and I got a lot of great opportunities -Not always busy but you learn to do other things -Needs a few more computers -IF YOU DON'T WANT TO WORK HARD DON'T COME, come to learn and come to work or you'll waste everyone's time

    Advice to Management

    -There needs to be some sort of stipend even if it's just lunch once a week on the company because I worked 9-6 everyday until we changed the schedule and it was a lot
