Speaker Emily Parker told us about how her wide range of skills developed during her time working at newspapers and PR agencies, combined with her love of sports, led her back to her hometown of Cincinnati to work for the Bengals. She loves that PR is an exciting industry in which you can constantly see the results of your hard work. She also made a reminder to stay open-minded to experiences because any job you take on can make you more qualified if you have the right mindset.
See you on Monday!
