Career Goals

After graduating this upcoming spring, I will most likely return to California. I'm not sure exactly where, though, as that will depend on any job offers I (hopefully) receive.

Currently, I work two days a week for WellFlorida, a local health nonprofit, as a public relations intern. Because my major is journalism, I wasn't completely sure about working in public relations, but have found that I enjoy the work. My internship has given me many opportunities to write and edit articles for internal newsletters and outside publications, and I am currently learning the process behind branding.

I am also working a few nights a week as a copy editor at the Independent Florida Alligator. I'd like to think that during my time there, my editing skills and knowledge of AP style have greatly improved.

Although I don't yet know what specific career I would like to pursue once I graduate, I'm not completely undecided. Ideally, I'd like to work in the field of communications, as a communications director for a small nonprofit or for a book publisher or editor. Hopefully the skills I have learned at WellFlorida and the Alligator will help me reach these goals.
