Inmy four years at Millikin University, the Communication Department hasgiven me several opportunities for personal and educational growth.Millikin University’s Communication Department has instilled the notionof ethical and theoretical thinking with a versatility to take on anytask given. Each professor shows such zeal for teaching while alsokeeping students engaged. I had the utmost pleasure of studying abroadin London in Autumn 2013. Studying in one of the most fashion-centralcapitols in the world opened my perspective to new and engaging elementsof public relations and fashion.

Michelle Rose Micor, May 2013 Graduate:
| "I graduated in May 2013 with a communication degree with an emphasis in Public Relations. The Communication department prepared me for my future in PR. I started working for Fishman Public Relations in November 2013. Fishman is a Public Relations and Marketing firm in Northbrook, IL that specializes in franchise development. I currently work on a few accounts and help to bring in as much national and local publicity as possible. As their publicist I create business and consumer pitches to bring to local and national reporters and TV producers. As a result of my pitching efforts, I’ve had clients featured on CNN.com, the NBC News Network, local news affiliate stations and local newspapers. || |

|A lot of what I do is focused on writing and fostering relationships with reporters and producers. Networking is so vital in this industry. However, I do spend a lot of time writing and researching more than I thought I would be, but it’s honestly great experience. A project I currently am working on is an article for a national magazine to feature one of my clients. Every work day is different. There are days I’m locked in the conference room brainstorming with my team, days where I’m writing, or pitching. The best days are the ones spent speaking to my clients and hearing their feedback and what they want to see from us specifically. It’s a very rewarding experience when you’re able to secure a TV segment or an interview for your client and you see how thrilled they are!" || |
