Scripps PRSSA welcomed Rachel O’Morrow to the meeting on Monday, September 13. Rachel currently works as a Senior Communications Specialist at NetJets. Her experience has primarily been in internal communications at NetJets. She is a dear friend and is a 2019 graduate of Ohio University. In her time here, she served as the Managing Director for our sister organization, 1804 Communication. During college, she interned at a nonprofit organization and eventually at NetJets.

Internal communications focuses on three aspects at NetJets: the audience, the goal and the method. She utilizes a unique software called Jetstream, while also other communication such as email. She works on crisis communication, develops communication strategies and supports miscellaneous initiatives.

Key Takeaways:

  • Lead, stay involved and be curious (more on that below).
  • Making those genuine connections, especially in internships, can truly lead to something great.
  • Be proactive with the needs of your employees when working in internal communications.

Three pieces of advice:

  • You are the leader of yourself.
    • Advocate for you.
    • Know and understand your goals and values.
  • Stay involved and connected.
    • Get involved in what aligns with those goals and values.
    • Opportunities will come if you genuinely care and desire them.
  • Be curious.
    • Always be willing to learn and ask questions.
    • Get comfortable with the uncomfortable.
