Hello all! My name is Jasmine Conley, I am interning with The Twiggs Group this summer.
I was born and raised in Fayetteville, AR along with my six younger brothers who range from 18 all the way to 1. I love to spend time with them when I am home, and support them at their many different sporting events.
I am currently a junior at the University of Central Arkansas in Conway and majoring in Public Relations with a minor in marketing. I am a member of the school’s PRSSA chapter and the chairwomen for our publicity team, as well as the Social Media Correspondent.
I started college as a Physical Therapy major, but quickly realized that was not the field I needed to be in. While I do enjoy athletic training and learning the science behind the human body, science was not my strongest field.
When it came time to pick a new major, I knew that I loved to write and use my creativity to help people come up with solutions. I wasn’t sure if there was a major that fit these interests, but once I found out that my school offered Public Relations, I knew that’s where I belonged.
Switching my major to PR was one of the best decisions I’ve made in college, and I love that I am able to learn something new about the field every day.
After I went on my first agency tour with PRSSA I realized how important internships were, and I began to research and apply to many different agencies and companies in Central Arkansas as well as Northwest Arkansas.
I chose to work with The Twiggs Group, because I felt I would be able to receive more hands on experience with clients and other tasks than I would at a big agency.
To me, interning is a chance to take all that you’ve learned in school and actually apply it to the real world and see what works best for you, and what doesn’t. This is my first internship, and I am so excited to apply what I have learned thus far, as well as learn new things that will help me in my future classes, and business endeavors.
Throughout this summer I will be posting about different topics as well as various social media tips. One of my main focuses will be Snapchat and how to keep up with all of their updates, and how to use it to its fullest potential.
