Public Relations, Stan Richards School of Advertising & Public Relations
Class of 2020
How are you using the skills that you learned at Moody in your current position/grad school? Did you use it for the Olympics or as a swimmer? What about social media for your own page?
I use skills I learned during my time in Moody everyday. My job requires me to build out RFPs for clients, which include media plans. Additionally, I do a lot of media math to calculate engagement rates, reach percentages, and estimated impressions. I deal with terms like CPM, CPC, CPA, CTR, etc. all of which were heavily taught during my time in Moody. Our rigorous class schedule which included media planning and campaigns helped with the previously mentioned topics and has made talking with clients a much easier transition.
What advice do you have for #TEXASMoody students?
Take advantage of your time in school and build as many relationships as possible. Your classmates and professors are your greatest resources. Never stop trying to obtain the internship you want and always give your all in everything you do, you might now always be the smartest - but you and only you determine how hard you work.
What do you miss most about Moody College?
My friends. The long nights of working on projects in moody, the PCL, and west campus. In the moment you don’t appreciate it, but there are the moments you remember and look back on post graduation.
Not only did I meet some of my best friends but this class also shaped me into a more well rounded student for my future semesters.
