Erica Noble is the EVP Group Head at Edelman in Cincinnati. She works with a variety of industries including retail, aerospace, health and finance. Her client work ranges from leading global corporate communications to managing large scale crisis issues. As the group head, she runs a team of 10 people who must map out and meet revenue targets each year.
Points of Advice:
- Be a good listener! We often place more emphasis on external communication, but it is so important to sit back and really hear what your client is saying about their challenges.
- The best interns are the ones who ask the smart questions. To do that, you must be a good listener.
- There will be plenty of opportunities to travel in a global firm like Edelman. It’s helpful to have that kind of diversity and cross pollinate with other firms.
- Have an entrepreneurial mindset.
- The most memorable project will always be the most challenging. This gives you the chance to learn a lot.
- When the time comes that you aren’t learning much anymore, it’s time to think about the next opportunity.
- You must be able to communicate the bottom line to your clients. How do you translate what you have achieved?
- Make sure you can articulate your client’s story on social media.
- During your interview, ask what the current intern is doing and how much of that work will translate to you. This will give you an idea of how much hands-on work you will actually be doing.
Until next time fellow PRos!
