Why do you love working for Inspired Strategies Agency: Inspired Strategies Agency is a great opportunity for students, like me, who are interested in Public Relations to really get a feel for what it’s all about. Agency allows us to learn by practicing, and I’m excited to begin implementing campaigns and working with real clients.

Career goals: Before I enrolled in my first Public Relations course, I wanted to use my English degree to be an editor or publisher, but I didn’t know what for. Now, after taking two public relations courses and being an operator at our planetarium, I would love to work with a planetarium as a public relations professional.
