My name is Rhiannon Steiger and I am a student at St. Cloud State University. My projected graduation is fall 2017, with a Bachelor of Science, in Public Relations and Marketing. I’m originally from Rapid City, South Dakota and decided to make the move to Minnesota stepping out of my comfort zone and try something new. I consider myself an outgoing person who loves to constantly be on the go. This is one of the reasons I selected Public Relations and Marketing for my career goal.
Last summer, I interned with Black Hills Works, a non profit organization, in their Marketing department. One of the main projects I worked on was organizing a golf tournament to raise money for Black Hills Works, to help people with disabilities. I also have worked in lodging, banquets, and at a law firm. All of my work experience has broaden my skills for future job opportunities in Public Relations and Marketing.
My goal for the remainder of my college experience is to stay active with the clubs on campus promoting professional development and networking. Clubs I would like to get involved with include Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA) and American Marketing Association (AMA), which will help broaden my skill set even more.
Once I graduate, my career goal is to find something in the Twin Cities in event planning and earning a degree in Public Relations and Marketing, helping me achieve my dream job.
