Houston, I’m home!, 09.12.2013

Hi! My name is Carolyn Shaffer, and I am so excited to be the new intern at 20K Group. I graduated from Purdue University with degrees in professional writing and English literature in May of 2012. About six months ago, I moved to Houston from Chicago in search of warmer weather and employment opportunities. The 20-hour, 1090 mile distance separating Houston and Chicago makes for some interesting cultural variations, so I have compiled a few of my observations and adventures during my introduction to a new city.

Intern Insider, 07.19.2013

Summer has flown by since I joined 20K Group as an intern, and my experience here has been nothing short of astounding. Everyday I look forward to working, and there are always new challenges and different tasks to accomplish. One thing that has always stuck with me during my time here is what Courtenay, 20K’s vice president, said on my first day: "We like to think of ourselves as a strategic communications agency with a conscience. There isn't any fluff." There's truth in saying that there's never a typical day in public relations. One day, I'm doing research on “Small Town, Texas,” and the next, I'm filming and editing a video for our blog or creating a media list from scratch. There's variety working in PR, and that's something I will always appreciate about my chosen field. The secrets to getting that awesome internship aren't really secrets. Let's just say it's knowledge often overlooked. First and foremost, dress to impress. The dress code could be business casual, but you should dress as if you were presenting to a client. looking good read more »

Houston PR Agency Seeks World’s Best Intern, 08.13.2012

About Us We're a strategic communications agency with a ten-year history of kicking PR butt and taking names. We have a penchant for doing good and love working with passionate people. We're the kind of agency who will put on work boots to prep for an event and then dress to the nines in the evening -- and we'll be sure that the media is there to capture it all. But it's not all glamorous. Most of our work isn't glamorous. Our clients hire us for our brains. We help them think about communications strategically, define their objectives and then blast their messages out to target audiences. About You College or graduate school student. Curious and brainy with a creative flair. Knowledge of business basics, public relations and online brand building. A "New York Times" reader and "Mashable" freak. Able to commit to 15-20 hours per week and have reliable transportation. Eager to learn and grow, even when the task is mundane. Permissive of a 10-pound colleague who likes to give kisses. (You don't actually have to let her kiss you, but you should probably be OK with dogs). Independent enough to Google when you can and mature enough to ask for help when it is necessary. Get an adrenaline rush when you're on a writing roll. read more »
