A new office and address can only mean one thing: it’s time to welcome some new interns to our growing space! We are excited to have to have Annie and Amelia join the team for the summer. Read on to learn more about these aspiring PR pros and why they’re excited to get started at BIGfish.
It's hard to believe that it's already the end of August; this summer has (sadly) flown by. Over the last several weeks, we've been wrapping things up with our two summer interns, Julia and Kelly. Julia, our PR intern, worked hard all summer long building media lists, contributing to the BIGfish Twitter account, tracking clients' press mentions and much more. Kelly, our crafty copywriter, wrote dozens of articles for client Iceland Naturally, blog posts for BIGfish and pitches. We're definitely going to miss having them around, but wish them the best of luck as they head back to school this fall.
