My Internship at Orsi Public Relations……

by Natalie Engler

Interning at Orsi Public Relations has been an incredible learning experience and I am so glad that I was given the opportunity to begin an internship here at the end of last summer after studying abroad and then continue that internship during my winter break when I returned home from school. As a current sophomore at the University of Oregon, pursuing a degree in Public Relations and minoring in Business Administration, it’s not often that someone my age and so early on in her undergraduate studies gets the chance to have real hands-on experience working in the PR industry.

Before starting at Orsi, aside from some of the communication/PR-related activities I’d been involved in, I had only taken one introductory public relations course that had given me a basic understanding of what working in the PR world entailed. Interning here has helped me take what I learned and apply that to real life work, while also learning so much more. I was able to work with amazing, well-known clients such as Tommy Bahama and Sanrio and even got to write a calendar listing blurb for a Tommy Bahama event in Huntington Beach that was then shared to different media outlets. I learned how to post calendar listings, track and research media coverage, use Photoshop software to create editorial clippings, and put together client reports. I also got to assist in writing a press release which I had only done once before in school.

Overall I think this internship was a great opportunity and learning experience that has given me valuable public relations skills. I know that what I’ve learned and experienced at Orsi PR will assist and guide me in a future PR career.

Blogger Nation Shows Off Spring Essentials with Tommy Bahama

Publication2111111

Bold printed dresses are an essential for Spring 2016 AND a hallmark of Tommy Bahama. We recently worked with Blogger Nation, a group of fashion bloggers from around the U.S. to show how they would style their printed dresses from the Tommy Bahama women’s collection.

Each blogger brought her own personal style to the look by accessorizing with jewelry, shoes, sunglasses, and jackets. We thought it was a great way to see how versatile these dresses are considering each blogger has her own personal taste. These posts prove that bold printed dresses are a must have for Spring/Summer, no matter where you live OR your personal style.
