Hello, my name is Amanda Craig. I am an aspiring public relations professional with a passion for brand management and media relations. I will graduate from the University of Oregon School of Journalism and Communication with a degree in public relations in the spring of 2015, and then hope to pursue a career in corporate PR.
I have spent the last two years as an online communications associate for the University of Oregon Alumni Association. Here, I strategically connect with a network of nearly 20,000 alumni around the globe to foster lifelong relationships between the university and its community. I have developed my writing and communication skills as a PR associate for student-run agency, Project MyVoice, where I spent the majority of my time establishing an online presence across social media sites and informing the public of the organization’s objectives by generating press releases and online posts.
I am eager to apply the skills I have acquired in both my university courses and in the professional world for a global organization in the future.
