I recently spoke with Katie Smith, PR Kent alumna and current New Yorker about her internship, the transition into a new city and her advice for current public relations students.

Where is your current internship?
My current internship is at PPR's NYC office.
What are some of your responsibilities in this role?
I support Dell's corporate, brand and corporate social responsibilities teams. I do a lot of news scanning and coverage reports, researching and building media lists, drafting pitches, suggesting Tweets, media backgrounders and more! Read More.
