This summer the Career Center is featuring weekly Takeovers of our Twitter account by the best and brightest Temple students who will walk us through a ‘day in the life’ at their summer internship or job. Our sixth Takeover takes place on Tuesday, August 9 and features Temple junior Finnian Saylor, an intern for Flackable LLC – a national financial PR and digital marketing firm! Learn a little more about Finnian below, and make sure you’re following @templecareers on Twitter on Tuesday!
What’s your major?
I’m an advertising major with a general business studies minor.
Where are you working this summer and what is your role? What does it usually entail?
This summer I’m working at Flackable LLC, a national PR and digital marketing firm for financial institutions. As a Public Relations Intern, my duties include writing press releases, bylines, blog posts and pitches; compiling media lists; pitching clients to news outlets; and researching financial/industry trends. It’s a virtual internship, so I can work from anywhere!
How did you find out about this opportunity?
I met representatives from Flackable at the SMC Spring 2016 Career Fair!
Where are you from?
I’m from Mattawana, PA – a small farming town in Central Pennsylvania with about 300 people.
What are your professional goals – a career in a particular industry, a graduate degree in a specific field, etc.?
I plan to live in a metropolitan area and work in advertising/marketing for an agency or an in-house department where I develop brands that want to stay on the cutting edge! I’d also love to pursue a doctoral degree in media studies. I think the media has profound effects on populations and it would be fascinating to study those impacts.
Can you provide your Twitter and Instagram handles, if you have them?
