This post is by Beta Eta Brooke Swilley, who is interning with March Communications, one of the leading tech PR agencies in Boston, MA. She was presented with this opportunity through the Tallahassee Student Chapter of the Florida Public Relations Association at FSU.
“It’s wicked gross out and I can’t remember where I pahked the cah.” This was the first phrase I heard a man nearly screaming into his cell phone as I waited outside the terminal on May 10. I knew I was no longer down south and it was goodbye Florida, hello Boston!
After taking the weekend to settle into my new home in Cambridge, MA for the next two and a half months, I began my first day as a summer intern with March Communications in downtown Boston. The weeks seem to fly by in a whirlwind of media scans, briefing books, pitch write-ups and steep technological learning curves. The content intimidation factor was high initially, but with an incredible staff and some intern comradery, my experience at March so far has been an utter success and I can officially say I’m a huge fan of the March team and so excited to be a part of it!
Not only am I working, but I am blessed to have the opportunity to travel around New England to places like NYC and Vermont on the weekends as well as explore the beautiful city of Boston. Each day is definitely a new adventure whether it’s someone I meet on the T subway or rooting for the Miami Heat against the Boston Celtics at a local pub. Life is good and I am so thankful for this amazing summer!
